Arabian Hotel Investment Conference

2021 | Dubai, UAE

EVERYTHING WE KNEW AS NORMAL CHANGED WITHIN DAYS, AND THE DEAFENING SILENCE ACROSS THE GLOBE MADE IT CLEAR THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE MUST FACE TOGETHER.

IT HAS LEFT THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS, AND IT HAS BECOME MORE PRESSING THAN EVER TO COME TOGETHER TO CONNECT, SHARE INSIGHTS & BE INSPIRED TO RESTART & MOVE FORWARD.

WE STARTED FROM SCRATCH TO REIMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE TO BRING THE INDUSTRY TOGETHER IN A SAFE AND MEANINGFUL MANNER.

AND THAT NEW TRANSFORMATION IS WHAT WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE FOR AHIC ON THE ROAD.








NEW ROADS TO THE NEW NORMAL

As we set out to reimagine AHIC, we were determined to create a new format which connected the three pillars of the successful AHIC experience model - Content, Networking & Experiences. With Dubai opening its doors to tourists in July, it was an opportunity to innovate once again, and build a format bringing together the AHIC community both physically and virtually; which is AHIC on the Road.

The brand-new format takes the programme ‘on the road’, taking place virtually and onsite over three days from 29 September to 1 October. Each day, hosted in a new location with select live audiences, will be streamed onto a virtual platform purposed for both onsite and virtual attendees. 

UNITING ONSITE & ONLINE

We recognise that businesses thrive on developing the right connections and are excited to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect, collaborate and exchange ideas with both physical and virtual attendees, right from the comfort of your desktop or mobile devices.

The 'on the road' programme will be streamed onto a virtual platform purposed for both onsite and virtual attendees. Through the mobile and web applications, both sets of attendees will be able to network and schedule meetings onsite or through one-to-one video calls, truly bringing everyone into the ‘same room’. Attendees will also be able to create personalised schedules, choosing content, outdoor experiences, and networking opportunities that they would like to attend either virtually or onsite in Dubai.

Browse through our A.I driven recommendations of people and content across the three days.

Create your own schedule to meet the right people & engage with content which matters to you.

Schedule meetings onsite or online with 1:1 video calls, bringing everyone into the 'same room'.

Add notes, ratings and tags to the connections made, and export everything to one excel file. 


INSIGHTS FOR THE NEW NORMAL

As we started to put the programme together, we looked at various formats that have worked well in the past but also new ones that enable attendees to deep dive into more sensitive topics with fellow peers and stakeholders. The three-day programme includes insight-packed briefings on hot topics including future of hotel F&B, investor opportunities and sentiment, macro-economic outlook, global and regional key performance indicators and much more.

NETWORKING ON THE MOVE

We know that attending a conference can be tiring - absorbing all that knowledge, meeting important people, discussing strategies, making important decisions – it can play a toll on you. Our experiences are not only designed to energise your day but to also create dynamic networking experiences that connect like-minded attendees together across the three days.







INTELLIGENCE TO INFORM THE INDUSTRY

To navigate the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we also developed and launched AHIC Insights, a region-focused intelligence centre built exclusively for the AHIC community, powered by Global Data. The platform features invaluable industry news, trends, reports and projects data; all curated for the hotel investment community through the lens of GCC hospitality and tourism. These insights are trusted, actionable, and forward-looking, which can help you predict future trends and avoid blind spots.
