IN-THE-ROUND SESSIONS

NEW TO IHIF

Discussion and debate are key to The International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF). These new ‘In-the-Round’ sessions are a series of more intimate and informative discussions that will focus on specialised topics. Each session will be led by one or two industry experts who will prepare information to share with the delegates with the aim of delivering valuable content. They will then guide the discussion and answer questions. This is a great opportunity to not only hear from experts and to learn about areas into which your business can grow, but also to be actively involved in valuable discussion. Looking at geographical destinations that are offering fantastic developmental opportunities will be a focus of many of these sessions.

Other topics to be confirmed.
If you are interested in hosting an ‘In-the-Round’ session please contact tpearson@questex.com
