Every year we host an annual event – the Arabian & African Hospitality Investment Conference – in Dubai, where we host over 100 hospitality investment leaders from across the MEA region to share their expertise and insights on stage. And there are another 100 or more speakers that we couldn’t have on stage because of timing, availability or some challenge as the event is only for three days. AHIC Talks is our new medium to ensure that we can still have these conversations and share them with the AHIC community. We hope you find them insightful and if you have any feedback, please share them with us at
