Egypt Tourism
Investment Briefing
Draft Agenda
As an essential component of the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) 2015 and the Africa Hotel
Investment Forum (AHIF) 2015, the inaugural Egypt Tourism Investment Briefing will be the premier feature
which will draw top tier investors and financiers from the Middle East and Africa tourism sector.
What is a Regional Briefing?
Regional Briefings are invitation only events,
designed to be high level forums where hotel
investors, developers and financiers focused
on a specific regional market can congregate. The event serves to provide insight
for existing and potential investors and the
opportunity to gain a deeper understanding
of the needs of these markets in addition
to providing market intelligence updates
on the local hotel sector. Over the last two
years Bench Events have run ‘Regional Brief-
ings’ with great success in Saudi Arabia,
Oman and Qatar each attracting industry
leaders and a large number of attendees.
Currently there are four additional briefings
scheduled to take place in the lead up to
the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference,
including Oman and Qatar with another two
planned for Saudi Arabia in both Riyadh and
Jeddah. The structure is generally a morning of content specific to the local market
followed by a networking lunch.
