About us

Since its inception in 2008, SAHIC has focused in the hotel and tourism industry, becoming the premier Latin American investment conference organizer.

SAHIC events promote business and related real-estate investment projects in Latin America attracting serious hotel investors, C-level hotel executives, and major developers to this part of the world.

Our events aim at helping understand where the Latin American industry is today, where it is heading, and also where the investment opportunities lie as it coordinates numerous opportunities to meet the right partners and build relationships.

SAHIC events are the “key place” to meet the international industry players: hotel chains and groups, investors, banks, mutual funds, developers, architects, and interior designers, regional government representatives and other decision makers of the industry.

In partnership with Bench Events since June 2016, SAHIC welcomes those interested investors from Europe, the Middle East and Asia to explore opportunities and learn more about our region and consider involvement in our part of the world.
