Costa Rica Sustainable Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference 2018 Highlights

SAHIC has proved to be the must-go annual event for anyone who is seeking to develop projects in Latin America throughout the years, as such it has a strong commitment to sustainability, to protecting the environment and to enhancing the natural resources to bring benefits for the future of our industry. So it has been a great honor to collaborate with the organization of this first edition of Costa Rica Sustainable Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference.

The event was a success thanks to the support of ICT, strategic partners, media partners, supporters, speakers and attendees as we all share the same belief: Costa Rica has a great potential for our industry.

For the first time in this region’s history, key investors and decision makers convened in one location to identify significant challenges and sustainable hospitality development opportunities for the country. The Conference took place November 13-14, 2017 at the InterContinental Hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica.
