"The launch of IHIF Asia Pacific is a perfect fit based on the emerging Asian markets and our mission to serve the hotel investment community through the development of leading investment conferences," says Liz Crawford, global director of IHIF and hotel events for Questex. "The conference will address the enormous potential for hotel investors, developers, operators and consultants around the world, especially in the Asia Pacific region where there is positive upswing in tourism dollars as well as projects in the pipeline. IHIF Asia Pacific will cover all the major regions in Asia and provide key decision makers with first-class networking opportunities and conference programming about the continuing shift of economic power to the Asian market so vital to their future success in hotel investment."
Scheduled to be held at The Venetian Macau Resort Hotel, IHIF Asia Pacific is an important event for those serious about uncovering opportunities and making deals in that market. It is sponsored by CB Richard Ellis Hotels Group, a premier provider of sales advisory, finance, market research and valuation services to meet the capital needs of investors and individual owners of hotel properties; and by media sponsors such as Hotel & Motel Management, Hotel Design, Luxury Hotelier and The Hotel Times magazines.
"CBRE is delighted to be associated with IHIF Asia Pacific which, like its namesake in Berlin, is set to be one of the 'must attend' events in the hotel investor's diary," states Robert McIntosh, director of CBRE Hotels, Asia Pacific, "We believe that this conference will add value to the hotel investment proposition for 2009 and the foreseeable future in Asia. It will uphold the excellent educational standards evident at the investment conference in Berlin and will further the knowledge of the senior-level hotel investment deal-makers to yet another untapped region of the world."
