This upcoming edition marks the 19th installment of the conference, which has previously taken place in Mumbai, New Delhi, and, for the first time in 2023, in the thriving city of Bengaluru, where it achieved tremendous success with more than 600 attendees. Once again, this year’s event will be hosted in the vibrant tech hub of Bengaluru.

We had hosted the 8th edition of THINC Indonesia in Bali in 2023 on 6th – 7th September at the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort. The day kickstarted with a round of golf on 6th September followed by an Exclusive Owners Workshop and Opening Cocktails after at The Apurva Kempinski, Bali. On the second day, 7th September, we had a comprehensive day-long program, culminating in Evening Cocktails at The Laguna, Nusa Dua – A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa of Marriott. The theme of the conference was AI – Artificial Intelligence, Astute Investments and Aesthetic Interiors.
The conference serves as a platform for networking, sharing knowledge and insights, and exploring new investment opportunities. One of the key themes of the THINC conference is the intersection of tourism and hospitality investment. It provides an opportunity for hotel developers, investors, and other industry stakeholders to learn about the latest trends and strategies in hotel investment, including financing, property development, and asset management. Another important focus of the conference is the impact of technology on the tourism and hospitality industry. This includes discussions on how technology is changing the way consumers interact with hotels and tourism destinations, as well as how technology can be leveraged to improve operational efficiencies and enhance the guest experience.

Sri Lanka faced a difficult situation in terms of an economic and political crisis in 2021-2023. The situation had significant implications not only for the wellbeing of the Sri Lankan people but also for the stability and economic health of the region. The crisis was characterized by a severe economic downturn, leading to shortages of essential goods like fuel, medicine, and food. Inflation rates soared, and the national currency depreciated sharply, exacerbating the hardships faced by the population.
We are now excited to bring THINC Sri Lanka back in 2024! Continue to watch this space for additional updates. For more information on THINC Sri Lanka, please visit https://www.thincsrilanka.com/ or write to [email protected]
