Bangkok--19 Apr--HOFTEL
The South East Asia Hotel Investors' Summit returns in May and will again feature top executives from both hotel owning groups and management companies and a range of cutting-edge topics.

Organised by HOFTEL, the world's only global hotel owners' alliance, SEAHIS will address the latest market trends, the rise of the OTAs, the challenges faced by markets seeing massive new supply like Vietnam and challenging logistics like the Philippines, ask whether Thai resorts can ever compete on price with the Maldives, and question the big brands about whether their scale is now allowing them to squeeze owners on fees and terms.

Among the 70 confirmed speakers to date, 60% are new faces to SEAHIS including Brian Williams, Deputy Chairman of Swire Hotels; Suchad Chiaranussati, Founder of SC Capital; Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Taj Hotels; Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels; Olivier Do Ngoc, Managing Partner of Dynasty Investments; Siew Kim Beh, CEO of Ascott Residence Trust Management, Markland Blaiklock, Deputy CEO of Centara and David Hamblin, VP Lodging Partner Services and Expedia.

"Last year 70 different companies which own or develop hotels attended SEAHIS and we expect a similar number this time", said Simon Allison, CEO of HOFTEL. "SEAHIS is quite different from other hotel investment events – over half our speakers are from owning groups and they are generally unafraid to be a bit controversial, so the discussions can get quite interesting. Everyone is senior too, so it's a high quality of debate and there's not the selling pressure you tend to feel at some other events. It's a relaxed dialogue among industry leaders".
