Positioning Your Investment for Growth - Conference Day 1
Russia & CIS Hotel Investment Conference (RHIC) begins today at the Radisson Royal Hotel Moscow. Now in its eighth year, RHIC has become the region’s largest hotel industry gathering. Over 380 delegates from 33 countries will attend the conference. This three day event brings together top-level executives from all areas of the industry including investors, developers, brands, operators, financiers, advisors and government officials – all with one common purpose: to do business in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
“This year’s programme has a focus on real estate investors, with discussions centered on the growing interest to invest in the sector and returns,” stated Jonathan Worsley, Chairman of Bench Events, co-organiser of RHIC. “We are delighted to have the involvement of the Mayor’s office from Moscow, and also leading officials from St. Petersburg participating on conference sessions throughout this three-day event.”
RHIC attendees will gain insight from Russian and global leaders as to where the real opportunities lie in the region, discover successful strategies from those already operating in the market and hear from government officials and top economists on the latest forecasts and trends. More than 60 of the industry’s key players will speak at RHIC this year, sharing their knowledge and experience to help conference participants succeed and grow in their regions.
The Russia & CIS Hotel Investment Conference will be held on 15-17 October.
