Dear AHIC community,
I have been wanting to write this for some time! So excited and relieved to be planning AHIC after the challenges of the past year. Nothing has changed, and yet everything has changed. After 16 years of organising AHIC, never before has it been so important to gather the industry together, one we all love and cherish so much, to map out the future. Join us at AHIC live-in-person in Dubai on 20-22 September 2021, and here is our promise to you:
No laptop required.
No need to tell someone they are on mute.
No screen fatigue.
No Zoom bombing!
Let’s connect in-person and create partnerships empowering us to 'rise together'.
I want to share with you how we're trying to make an impact with AHIC 2021.
We are combining the active and close-knit communities of Saudi Arabia Hospitality Investment Conference (SHIC), Africa Hospitality Investment Forum (AHIF) and the Global Restaurant Investment Forum (GRIF) at AHIC 2021.
Together, these communities will bring a larger group of investors, industry leaders, private equity firms, franchise owners, and leading stakeholders, creating a robust buyer and seller platform with more opportunities under one roof. With their presence, we can have the much-needed conversations to rise from this pandemic together, enhancing the value of market insights, networking, time spent, and the potential of partnerships and opportunities.
With the support of our Host Partner, Jumeirah, the event will take place at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai under the new banner of the Arabian & African Hospitality Investment Conference (AHIC). With a recovering hospitality sector, Dubai is one of the safest locations to host an event.
I hope to share more with you as we finalise our plans. In the meantime, please register your interest today to ensure you receive future updates about the event.
Speak soon & stay safe.
Chairman & CEO
