IHIF - Where the Industry Meets

The International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) is the most influential and globally diverse meeting place for the hotel industry.

The three day event, attended by over 2,000 hospitality and tourism decision-makers from over 80 countries is the place where deals are done and important industry decisions are made. IHIF attracts a very senior gathering and among them nearly every major hotel chain CEO, influential global tourism ministers and the largest group of investors and hotel owners.

IHIF focusses on delivering opportunities to anyone who currently operates within the hotel and tourism industry or who wants to do business in this sector, including:

• Investors • Hotel Owners • Lenders • Hotel Chain CEOs and Executives • Financial Advisers • Real Estate Agents • Lawyers • Designers • Architects • Consultants • Timeshare Developers • Tourism and Government Officials

Through three days of unrivalled networking opportunities, outstanding evening receptions, an exhibition and the very best educational programme, IHIF delivers important networking, information and contacts and our attendees and Sponsors, will agree that IHIF is an un-missable event in their diaries.

There was palpable optimism across the conference in 2015, not only praising the quality of the event but also the future of the hospitality industry. This positivity was reflected throughout the breaking news released during IHIF. This year saw more brands launched, hotels signed, reports released, appointments confirmed and developments unveiled than in the IHIF’s 18 year history. Several industry leading speakers commented that we are “entering the golden age of hospitality” and the energy and enthusiasm felt amongst delegates, speakers and sponsors certainly reflected this sentiment.

The event is a true global gathering and consistently brings together a diverse range of stakeholders from across the hospitality, property and investment communities. The importance of a global perspective and reach has never been more important than today in a world where the pace of political, economic, social, technological and capital structures is constantly changing. IHIF is seen by many as an essential ingredient for success within our industry and the importance of attending cannot be underestimated. For three days the most senior and influential members of the hotel community gathered in Berlin for unrivalled networking opportunities, outstanding evening receptions, an exhibition and the very best educational programme. Perhaps most importantly though, is the understanding that in attending IHIF, you are immersing yourself in an environment with others who are serious about doing business, completing deals and forging productive business relationships.

We  look forward to welcoming you to Berlin in March.
