Bench Occasions has confirmed the Arabian Lodge Funding Convention (AHIC) will return to Dubai, as an in-person occasion, later this yr.
The present, seen as a significant bellwether of the regional hospitality sector, will return on September 20th-22nd.
“Nothing has modified, and but the whole lot has modified,” stated Jonathan Worsley, chairman of Bench.
“After 16 years of organising AHIC, by no means earlier than has it been so vital to collect the business collectively, one all of us love and cherish a lot, to map out the longer term.”
The present will mix the Saudi Arabia Hospitality Funding Convention (SHIC), Africa Hospitality Funding Discussion board (AHIF) and the World Restaurant Funding Discussion board (GRIF) right into a single occasion.
AHIC will thus convey collectively a bigger group of buyers, business leaders, non-public fairness corporations, franchise house owners and main stakeholders, creating a strong purchaser and vendor platform with extra alternatives below one roof.
“With their presence, we are able to have the much-needed conversations to rise from this pandemic collectively, enhancing the worth of market insights, networking, time spent, and the potential of partnerships and alternatives,” stated Worsley.
With the help of host associate Jumeirah the occasion will happen on the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai below the brand new banner of the Arabian & African Hospitality Funding Convention (AHIC).
“With a recovering hospitality sector, Dubai is among the most secure areas to host an occasion,” added Worsley.
“I hope to share extra with you as we finalise our plans.
“Within the meantime, please register your curiosity at this time to make sure you obtain future updates concerning the occasion.”
