Welcome to RHIC 2015
The Russia & CIS Hotel Investment Conference (RHIC), the premier meeting for the region’s hotel and tourism investment community, will return to Moscow in October 2015. Last year was a huge success with more than 390 top-level executives from all areas of the industry in attendance. 75% of the audience, which included investors, hotel owners, financiers, developers, brand representatives, operators, lawyers, advisors, architects and government officials were from Russian companies, a staggering 20% increase in the number of Russian participants since 2012.
