AHTIC – A huge success!

The first Asia Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference (AHTIC) was held at the Hilton Colombo in Sri Lanka from 27-29 November 2016, in partnership with the Sri Lanka Tourism Club (SLTC).

AHTIC attracted an international audience comprising of more than 200 senior figures and decision-makers involved in all aspects of hotel and tourism investment in South Asia and concluded in an atmosphere of optimism moderated by caution. Over two days several of Asia’s leading hotel investors from 19 countries discussed the investment potential of Sri Lanka and other destinations around the Indian Ocean from Mauritius and the Seychelles to Malaysia and Vietnam.

The Sri Lankan government, keen to attract international finance, announced a series of tourism development zones and the President promised that the next three years, 2017-19, would be investment years with special concessions to overseas investors; although the precise details have yet to be clarified.
