20th annual International Hotel Investment Forum

IHIF 2017

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF). For this special occasion, the conference—to be held March 6 - 8 in Berlin, Germany—will look back at how the industry has changed over the past 20 years, and also forward to what we can expect in the next 20.

The three-day event is the most influential and globally diverse meeting place for the hotel industry, attended by over 2,000 hospitality and tourism decision-makers from over 70 countries.

IHIF focuses on delivering opportunities to anyone who currently operates within the hotel and tourism industry or who wants to do business in this sector, including investors, hotel owners, lenders, hotel chain CEOs and executives, financial advisers, real estate agents, lawyers, designers, architects, consultants, timeshare developers, and tourism and government officials.

This year's educational program will feature over 180 speakers who are experts in their fields. But it's not all about listening to experts—discussion and debate are key to IHIF, which will also continue morning "In the round" sessions—a series of more intimate and informative discussions.
