Welcome to the Hotel Investment Conference - South Asia (HICSA), an annual event that brings together a diverse range of participants from the hospitality, real estate, and investment industries. Attendees include hotel owners, operators, investors, financiers, developers, architects, consultants, and other professionals from South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. HICSA offers a comprehensive program of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. Since our launch in 2005, the conference has grown to become the largest event of its kind in the region with attendees coming from across the globe to promote the development of new business opportunities and investment partnerships.
We understand the hotel industry is constantly changing, and we want to make sure that all our attendees are well-informed and prepared for whatever the future may bring hence we chose Artificial Intelligence, Astute Investments, and Aesthetic Interiors as our theme for this year. The three branches of AI are currently seen as essential elements of the hospitality sector, aiding in streamlining key business procedures and assisting in strategic decision-making.
Traditionally the conference has always been held in Mumbai or Delhi. However, this year, for the 18th edition, we're taking you to the technology capital of India, Bengaluru for the first time. In its new avatar, HICSA sees a new city, new hotels, a new format, and a new theme! The main conference will take place on April 12th and 13th April at the Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn Bengaluru Embassy Manyata Business Park with the Grand Opening Reception on the 11th at the JW Marriott Bengaluru Golfshire Resort & Spa.
Lastly, we strive to make HICSA both informative and enjoyable, and hence this year we have introduced four exciting new experiences for HICSA delegates to enjoy. These are 1) HICSA Golf Round and lunch 2) JW Marriott Bengaluru Prestige Golfshire Resort and Spa Tour 3) The Owners Only Meet and, 4) Hotelivate’s Bengaluru Bar Hop. Learn more about these experiences and how you can signup for them here.
We look forward to seeing you at HICSA 2023!
