What Makes SEAHIS Different?

  • SEAHIS is run “by owners for owners” as well as for companies which provide services to owners i.e. the entire hotel industry universe
  • It’s based around hotel real estate investors – Owners of hotel real estate have consistently been the largest group. In 2022, 45% of attendees came from groups which own and invest in hospitality real estate
  • It’s very high-level – usually 35-40% of attendees are company owners and their families, CEOs and other C-suite officers
  • It’s a South East Asia Event with Global reach – at SEAHIS 2019, attendees came from 23 different countries. The vast majority of attendees were based in Asia however some came from as far afield as the UK or US in order to meet with regional groups
  • SEAHIS is “big enough to meet key decision-makers – and yet still small enough to meet key decision-makers”.
