Why SAHIC The Caribbean & Central America?


 We have always believed that making these events within the own region was the right thing to do, since it is there where opportunities lie, where local players and future partners meet. It is there where things happen.

It will be a unique opportunity to meet, contact and boost your relationship with key players of the industry. You will be able to update with the global trends of the hospitality and tourism industry, interact, express your point of view and get a clear outlook of the opportunities in the region.

 See you in Panama!

“SAHIC is really the time where you can actually share thoughts where you can meet people whether they are my clients, my owners, my partners, local government. If you want to be good in your industry you have to first listen to what people have to tell you.”

The dynamic of this format consists in presentations structured in 20 slides where the presenter will be able to speak up to 20 seconds per slide. The objective is to present the key and differential concepts of the project in a timeframe and space that captivates the attention of the audience, appealing to language economy and the efficiency of images.
