New HICAP Events for Singapore and Tokyo

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 27 January 2009

The hosts and organizers of Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) - Burba Hotel Network (BHN) and Horwath HTL - are to launch two new events; HICAP Update Japan and HICAP Update Southeast Asia with the support from Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels (JLLH), a global leader in the hotel investment industry.

The two new events will be an extension of HICAP, which takes place every October in Hong Kong and is one of the regions largest and longest-running hotel investment conferences. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2009, HICAP continues to be a must-attend event.

With the creation of the HICAP Update Japan and HICAP Update Southeast Asia, attendees will be presented with two targeted, high-end, one-day events focusing on major issues driving the hotel investment sector in these markets.

Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels, which used to operate its own events in both cities (the former Asia Pacific Hotel Investment Conference in Singapore and Hotel Investment Forum in Tokyo), will have strong involvement in the two new conferences as a Founding Sponsor.

In these rather interesting times, it made perfect sense for both parties to combine forces and come up with something more powerful. We believe that these two conferences will continue what JLLH started, but the history and success of HICAP, and the team behind it, bring greater depth and a new dimension to the events, said Arthur de Haast, Global Chief Executive Officer of Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels.

Robert Hecker, Managing Director of Horwath HTL Asia Pacific, added, These new events will be an outstanding extension to HICAP, which will continue to be the regions premier multi-day hotel investment conference. The new events will be valuable and focused mid-year gatherings of the hotel investment community and will expand the HICAP reach into Japan and Southeast Asia.

Hecker continued, JLLH will also be joining us at the Hong Kong conference as a Patron of HICAP, which will add further strength to our efforts to deliver cutting edge information about the trends and opportunities in hotel investments in the region.

HICAP Update Japan and HICAP Update Southeast Asia will be held in May 2009. The official dates and locations are expected to be confirmed next week.
