CATHIC to showcase development projects

The Central Asia & Turkey Hotel Investment Conference (CATHIC) will showcase development projects within Central Asia and Turkey during the Investment Den. As one of the most popular sessions held at our other conferences in Berlin, Moscow and Dubai, the Investment Den is an opportunity for developers to present their project to a panel of investors who are willing to “invest*” in their development.

Each of the panel of investors will be given CATHIC 100m equity each to invest in the project(s) of their choice and the project that raises the most CATHIC money* wins the competition!

The Investment Den will be hosted by Michael Cooper, VP Strategic Development, Russia and CIS, IHG and the judges are:
Oğuz Akçura, Chairman Of Executive Committee, Anemon Hotels
Alper Aksoy, Board Member, Yeditepe Hotel & Tourism Co Inc
Şerife Ercantürk, Vice Chairman of Bilgili Holding, Owner of W Hotels Istanbul (Starwood) and Radisson Blu Conference & Airport Hotel - Ajia Hotel

If you have a project that you would like to present, please send us your application by Friday, 17 December. Four projects will be selected to present their project in front of the audience, and to the panel of investors, on Wednesday 9 February, in the main Ballroom. Each presenter will be given a maximum of 5 minutes to present their project with 5 minutes of hard hitting question and answer session.

The Central Asia & Turkey Hotel Investment Conference will be held from 7-9 February 2011 at the Ceylan InterContinental Hotel Istanbul and is jointly organised by Bench Events and Questex Media.
