Bench Events, organiser of several of the world’s most respected events in hotel and restaurant investment, has named APO (African Press Organization) as Official Newswire of Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), the premier hotel investment conference in Africa, which takes place 30th September to 1st of October 2015 at the Sheraton Hotel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The Africa Hotel Investment Forum is attended by the highest calibre international hotel investors of any conference in Africa, connecting business leaders from the international and local markets, driving investment into hotel development and other hospitality and tourism-oriented projects across the continent.
Networking is the essence of AHIF, with over 500 attendees from over 45 countries. Advisory board members include top executives from the African Export Import Bank, Azalai Hotels, Accor, Hilton, Hyatt, London & Regional, Marriott, Rezidor, Starwood, Wyndham and other leading companies involved in hotel development.
AHIF, now in its fifth year, expects to attract over 600 participants and more than two dozen sponsors ready to conclude deals in Africa. Last year, it attracted over a hundred journalists.
Matthew Weihs, Managing Director, Bench Events, said: “In our view, Africa Wire is the outstanding news wire service in Africa and we anticipate that as a consequence of this partnership, AHIF will become even better recognised as the place to meet and do business with the leading players in Africa’s hospitality industry”.
