Bangkok, Thailand - SEAHIS 2022 opened today with a record attendance and record sponsors. With  over 100 speakers and with 40% of attendees being hotel owners or owners representatives the conference has a laser sharp focus on topics and questions that hotel owners would ask. 

Simon Allison, Chairman and CEO Hoftel Asia Ltd, speaking live from the Summit said, “With a record 280 attendees of a very high quality of delegates, we have good support from the industry with a record number of sponsors ranging from owners to operators, lawyers and consultants. A very broad spectrum we have managed to achieve a truly regional event.

“Obviously the region is still opening up and there is still some caution on costs, the difficulty of recruiting, energy prices and with a geopolitic crisis in the background. It’s looking good at the moment but there are some clouds on the horizon.”

Commenting on the future, Allison said, “I think we can be back to pre-Covid levels within a year, but we are keeping a close eye on the Russian-Ukraine situation and on oil prices.“
