AHIC 2020 Postponed

Updated on: 9 March 2020

Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) and assessing whether the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) 2020 should take place. 

Until now, we were confident that the situation would not impact our ability to deliver the event. However, while the UAE remains safe to travel and continues to adhere to the highest medical and hygiene measures to reduce the risk of transmissions, it has become increasingly clear that the event will inevitably be impacted by speakers, delegates, sponsors and partners unable to attend due to global travel restrictions. 

As a result, and following close consultation with our event partners, stakeholders and the AHIC Advisory Board, we have made the difficult decision to postpone AHIC 2020. 

Together with our partners, we are committed to hosting the event at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai on the new dates 21-22 September 2020, when we will hopefully be in a better position to deliver a successful event. The new dates also coincide with the final countdown to the year's most highly anticipated global event – Expo Dubai 2020. 

If you have any further questions, please do email my team at and they will get back to you as soon as possible.

This is not an easy time for our industry and we thank you for your support and understanding.
