Northstar purchased the event suite from Hotels World Australia Pty Ltd., founded by John Smith. The acquisition follows Northstar’s purchase of the Burba Hotel Network in May 2017.
The HotelsWorld event will be operated in conjunction with Northstar’s other hospitality focused events including ALIS, The Americas Lodging Investment Summit, which is the world’s largest hotel investment conference; HICAP, Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific in Hong Kong, which is the largest hotel investment conference in Asia and one of the longest continuously running hotel investment conferences in the world; HICAP Update in Singapore; AOCAP, the Alternative Ownership Conference – Asia Pacific in Singapore; HIFI Hotel Investment Forum India in Mumbai; CHRIS, the Caribbean Hotel and Resort Investment Summit in Miami; HOLA, the Hotel Opportunities Latin America conference in Miami; and Hot.E, the Hotel Investment Conference Europe in London.
Northstar and BHN will be able to influence their databases, relationships, media properties and domain expertise to help grow HotelsWorld further.
Smith will continue to be involved in the organization and delivery of HotelsWorld under Northstar’s ownership. Ashurst, Australia’s leading legal firm, has co-hosted HotelsWorld since its inception and will continue to co-host the event in conjunction with BHN.
