Hotel Investment Conference – South Asia (HICSA) is an annual event that brings together a diverse range of participants from the hospitality, real estate, and investment industries. Attendees include hotel owners, operators, investors, financiers, developers, architects, consultants, and other professionals from South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. HICSA offers a comprehensive program of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. Since our launch in 2005, the conference has grown to become the largest event of its kind in the region with attendees coming from across the globe to promote the development of new business opportunities and investment partnerships.

We understand the hotel industry is constantly changing, and we want to make sure that all our attendees are well-informed and prepared for whatever the future may bring hence we chose Artificial Intelligence, Astute Investments, and Aesthetic Interiors as our theme for this year.

Traditionally the conference has always been held in Mumbai or Delhi. However, this year, for the 18th edition, we went to the technology capital of India, Bengaluru for the first time. In its new avatar, HICSA saw a new city, new hotels, a new format, and a new theme! The main conference took place on April 12th and 13th April at the Hilton and Hilton Garden Inn Bengaluru Embassy Manyata Business Park with the Grand Opening Reception on the 11th at the JW Marriott Bengaluru Golfshire Resort & Spa.

We strive to make HICSA both informative and enjoyable, and hence this year we introduced four exciting new experiences for HICSA delegates to enjoy. These were 1) HICSA Golf Round and lunch 2) JW Marriott Bengaluru Prestige Golfshire Resort and Spa Tour 3)  The Owners Only Meet and, 4) Hotelivate’s Bengaluru Bar Hop.

Thank you for being a part of HICSA 2023! We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to each one of you for attending and supporting the 18th annual Hotel Investment Conference –  South Asia. Your participation and contribution played an instrumental role in making the event a grand success.

See you next year on the 3rd and 4th of April 2024 in Bengaluru!
