CHIS 2009 countdown is on

The countdown is on for China Hotel Investment Summit 2009, which takes place 22-24 April at the Grand Hyatt Shanghai.

CHIS, the country’s leading hotel investment conference, puts together key players from China’s hospitality sector, as well as analysing latest industry trends and economic insights.
Delegates will also be able to learn best practices from pertinent topics discussed; and there all promise to be spectacular Shanghai evening receptions.

New this year is the CHIS Master Series, an educational programme that focuses on two critical issues at the forefront of investors, owners, financiers and other stakeholders - hotel financing and hotel asset management. This aims to address how the approach to financing hotel investments and developments will be transformed in the wake of the global credit crisis.

Asset Management is another top priority. In the face of deteriorating trading performance, asset managers, owners, operators and stakeholders are taking no chances in protecting the hotel cashflows and underlying asset values.

There are many more specialized topics which will be debated at the CHIS 2009, covering other hospitality asset classes including Serviced Apartments, Golf Courses, Residential and Fractional Ownership; Environmental Sustainability Solutions
for Hotels and Resorts; Budget Business Model; Managing Human Capital; and others.


“Focus on China - Asia’s Powerhouse” as the theme for CHIS 2009 goes by the fact that China provides the long-term growth market for many domestic, regional and global firms.

The country’s growing domestic tourism, reaching 1.6 billion arrivals in 2007, has created exceptional opportunities for us all.
