Hospitality industry leaders discuss the Middle East hospitality industry at 10th annual AHIC conference in Dubai

AHIC hospitality conference

The yBC team headed to Dubai this month for their annual visit to Bench Event’s AHIC (Arabian Hotel Investment Conference). This year was a particularly special event as it was AHIC’s tenth anniversary.

For ten years, the event has been a fantastic opportunity for hospitality industry leaders to get together and discuss what exciting changes are happening in their industry and how they can work together in the future. We interviewed 40 business leaders at the conference. Our discussions focused on the hospitality industry developments in the Middle East but also covered global issues affected the hospitality industry. Some of the big issues our expert interviewees explored included the increasing positivity in global hospitality markets, Dubai’s 2020 vision, and disruptive forces such as Airbnb.

yBC look forward to continuing to work with Bench Events and will be sharing the stories and discussions that came out of our AHIC interviews on our specialist hospitality industry business TV channel.
