ONE MONTH TO GO TO THE SECOND AFRICA HOTEL INVESTMENT FORUM
(Posted 24th August 2013)
The Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF) will return to Kenya this year for the second edition of this event, taking place between the 23rd to 25th of September at the Hotel InterContinental in Kenya’s capital Nairobi.
In the last three years there has been a 9.7% increase in new projects in North Africa whilst at the same time, an increase of 53% in sub-Saharan Africa (Source: African Business). In Kenya alone some 1.469 new rooms are in the ‘pipeline’, a sign how strong the demand for additional quality beds is.
East Africa is thought to be one of the continents major growth markets for hospitality investments in coming years, following the discovery of significant quantities of oil and gas but also in view of major infrastructure investments being undertaken in new ports, new railways, highways, pipelines and power projects, which are thought to spur economic growth in the high single digit or even low double digit figures. The conference will subsequently reflect on such areas as shown below, among other topics.
Highlights of the Forum programme:
THE AFRICA GROWTH STORY – WHO WILL BE THE WINNING ECONOMIES?
AFRICAN GOVERNMENTS & THE PRIVATE SECTOR
HOW ARE THE INTERNATIONAL OPERATORS TACKLING AFRICA?
OVERVIEW OF THE TOP TEN DESTINATIONS FOR DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
ABC OF HOTEL DEVELOPMENT
