Welcome to SAHIC 2016

SAHIC, the South American Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference, is the annual event of international level aimed at promoting the Hotel and Tourism business and related Real-Estate industry projects in the region, which has become a classic that continues to re-invent itself year after year.

Nearly 3200 senior executives have already taken part in this important conference which, since its very start, has been held in major South American cities -Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Cartagena de Indias, Santiago de Chile, Lima (2012 and 2015), Bogotá, Quito and in 2016 we will celebrate it in the charming city of Guayaquil, Ecuador.

SAHIC certainly helps you understand where the industry is today and where it is heading, but above all, it helps you understand where the opportunities lie, how to meet the right partners and build the partnerships that may increase business opportunities.

Either we talk about hotels, resorts, related real estate projects -including shared ownership- or about overall leisure and tourism development projects in South America and areas of influence in Latin America, we are talking about SAHIC.

It is an event where Networking has a key role through different activities that promote the possibility of interacting with key industry players.

This is undoubtedly a must-go annual event for anyone who is developing or seeking to develop projects in South America. A business event for business people.

SAHIC comprises two days of intensive activities that will significantly contribute to business development in South America, a region with a marked growth and a promising future.

In these days of great uncertainty and volatility in the world’s major markets, South America appears as a clear investment option.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you in Guayaquil, Ecuador on September 26 & 27, 2016.

20/20 Showcase your Project


Do you have a project? Do you want to present it?

“20/20 Showcase your Project” is the platform aimed at showcasing and submitting innovative ideas and attractive projects to be developed in different destinations in the region, and at facilitating the encounter between opportunities and interested investors.

The initiative comprises micro-presentations featuring 20 slides to be shown for no longer than 20 seconds a piece. The goal is to present the project’s key points in an agile and straight forward manner that may captivate the audience’s attention by appealing to the effectiveness of the images and the project highlights.

SAHIC’s organizing team will present all the candidates that have fulfilled the requirements to the Planning Committee for them to do the proper evaluation and selection. A maximum of 10 projects that comply with the requirements as specified, will be selected.

The “20/20 Showcase your Project” platform is intended to create a space to divulge interesting projects and unique opportunities, and to generate a real possibility to meet and interact with the right partners so as to execute projects. With this format, SAHIC seeks to build a dedicated space within the conference that may facilitate the encounter between those who have interesting ideas and projects and their investment partners, and vice versa.
