Southeast Asia's premier two-day Investor Summit for hotel owners and investors opens in Bangkok from 14-15 May at the Westin Grande Sukhumvit to discuss, debate and answer the most challenging questions effecting the hotel industry in the region.

Sixty of the leading hotel owning companies are among over 220 registered delegates at SEAHIS 2018 from 15 different countries in Asia, demonstrating the true regional nature of the event.

Maximising the quality of the delegates is a one-of-a-kind roundtable format providing guests a unique opportunity to grapple with the issues close at hand with owners and entrepreneurs and startups seeking capital and investment an opportunity to get in front of the industry's key decision makers.

"It is an exciting time to be in Southeast Asia and it is great to be back in the heart of the world's most dynamic hotel region, the only place where significant new supply is also being backed by lots of new demand," said SEAHIS organizer Simon Allison.

"The Middle East is seeing a lot of new demand but vast amounts of supply, which is storing up problems; Europe and the USA are stable with adequate demand growth and relatively few new hotels being built. Only in Southeast Asia is there not only a strong pipeline of new hotels and serviced apartments but surging demand."

Organised by HOFTEL, the world's only global hotel owners' alliance, SEAHIS will address the latest market trends, the rise of online travel agents, 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.

With over 30 CEOs speaking, there are plenty of heavy-hitting discussions expected.

Among the 82 confirmed speakers, more than half 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.
