The Hotel Development & Investment workshop/forum guides us through the complete hotel project life cycle – from concept, feasibility study and financing to investing, asset management and disposition.

HDI is a workshop where stakeholders in hotel projects will interact and consider services and solutions for property development and hotel operations.  It is a forum for hotel and property development professionals to discuss and promote solutions for sustainable hotels and the built environment.

Industry professionals will fully engage with us on each step of a hotel development project, share with us their expertise on the topics, and provide us cross-functional collaboration opportunities.  They focus on topical issues, challenges and solutions that can help us in performing our respective profession and address the issues of interest to all hotel development project participants.

This is a continuous development program for professionals in the real estate and hospitality industries, including property developers, architects, designers, contractors, consultants, lenders, investors, operators and suppliers.  The workshop/forum calls for cross-functional collaboration between the speakers and the participants.

The program focuses on the key aspects of a hotel development project:

  • Planning & Development – Hotel development projects, hotel project feasibility studies, implementation of hotel projects and project management, hotel operating models and selection of hotel operators.
  • Financing & Investment – Conventional and alternative financing for hotel projects, hotel investment structuring and strategies as well as the management of hotel investments.
  • Hotel Asset Management – The structuring and management of hotel assets, hotel revenue management, valuing hotel property, hotel acquisition, project exit and asset disposition.

The new normal in property development is sustainability of the built environment for all stakeholders.  For this reason we will focus on the sustainable development, construction and operation of hotel properties.

We will gain a firm understanding of the hotel life cycle with the objective of becoming more effective, productive and successful in the hospitality industry.

The workshop/forum is also the ideal opportunity for industry professionals to network with others who are involved in the development and investment in hotel projects and assets.
