Seahis - 2020

Against all the odds, the South East Asia Hotel Investors' Summit (SEAHIS) will hold its fourth edition in December, with a plethora of top-level speakers from almost every major Thailand-based hotel group and more than 30 other speakers from around the region dialling in remotely.

Travel, hospitality and real estate professionals will enjoy expert insights into the key issues currently affecting the hotel industry, including the supply-demand balance, the changing role of OTAs, the balance of power between hotel managers, franchisors and owners, sustainability, and the best vehicles for owning hotels - funds, families or public companies. Sadly Covid cannot be ignored, and much of the content will be underpinned by the impact of the global pandemic. Related topics will include cost reduction strategies, opportunities for acquisitions in a downturn, design changes to respond to the "new normal", and how resorts will be sold to guests in the post-Covid, post-Thomas Cook era.

These issues will be addressed by many of the region's most senior hotel and travel executives, including Bill Bensley, founder of architecture and design studio, Bensley; Suchad Chiaranussati, CEO of SC Capital; Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor International; Stephan Vanden Auweele, CEO of Asset World Corporation (TCC); Dirk de Cuyper, CEO of S Hotels and Resorts; James Riley, CEO of Mandarin Oriental; Rajeev Menon, President - Asia Pacific of Marriott; Andrew Langdon, SVP of Development - Asia at Accor; Deepak Ohri, CEO of Lebua, and many more. In total, 50 of the speakers are company owners, CEOs or other C-suite officers. We are also delighted that SEAHIS will be addressed by Khun Tanes Petsuwan, Deputy Governor of TAT.

An extra special guest at this year's SEAHIS will be Vern Unsworth M.B.E. K.C.T., the heroic caver and cave explorer who famously helped to rescue the Wild Boars junior football team from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai province in 2018. Mr. Unsworth will inspire delegates with his tales of resilience in adversity - an important message in this challenging time. View Vern's video here - click here.
