Descubra por qué gente clave de la industria de la hospitalidad elige asistir a las Conferencias de SAHIC.

Elie Maalouf
CEO, The Americas, IHG

"It’s a real delight to be here in Medellin, Colombia. I just spent some time onstage with Peter Greenberg and we covered the industry, the region, consolidation, brands, guest service, technology. I’m pleased to have been here and look forward to coming sometime soon and spending time with Latinamerican owners that are very important to us, and to spending more time in SAHIC”. “Global scale matters, and we have it, but local relevance and strength will always be a paramount. Technology is important but humanity will always be more important."

Patrick Mendes
CEO, South America, AccorHotels

"This is my number 7th SAHIC. To me this conference is very important for one main reason: to put tourism and hospitality, our industry in the map. We represent southern countries in the southern region, up to 15% of the GDP of those countries, and in Latinamerica we are still struggling, we still have a lot of potential to double or triple the size of our industry. This conference allows us to talk to investors, to colleagues, to trendsetters in order to make sure that we put this industry, which is hospitality, tourism and travel in the middle of the concern or the program that we have with our different governments."

Fernando Poma
VP & Managing Director, Real Hotels & Resorts, Grupo Poma

"Me siento honrado de que me invitaron a participar como keynote speaker este año en SAHIC en Medellín. Aprendí muchísimas cosas, tuve una experiencia fabulosa, pude compartir con mi amigo Arturo Garcia y me sentí muy en casa. He experimentado muchísimas relaciones con personas aquí, aprendiendo muchísimo y he podido ver a viejos amigos. Recomiendo SAHIC."

Ted Middleton
Senior Vice President, Latin America & the Caribbean, Hilton

“This is my 11th SAHIC that I’ve attended. I reset the first one in Buenos Aires. And I’ve watched the conference grow in importance within the region, the attendance has grown, the quality of the networking, the quality of the people I meet. It’s one conference I will not miss. It’s very important for what we do in Latin America and the Caribbean: to network with people at SAHIC. Arturo Garcia Rosa and his team do an excellent job on putting one of the best lodging conferences in the world.”

Sébastien Bazin
Chairman & CEO, AccorHotels

"South America has huge potential in many countries; you just have to adapt to the local economy, local cultures and you have to do it through the local executives. SAHIC is really the time where you can actually share thoughts, where you can meet people. If you want to be good in your industry you have to first listen to what people have to tell you. It is a must to be here."

Bill Walshe
CEO, Viceroy Hotel Group

"SAHIC is an opportunity to interact with the people who genuinely make decisions for the region. There´s a lot of people here but they are great people. You don´t find yourself trying to get out of the conversations, you find yourself trying to stay in conversations because we are networking with people who really do run this region. It’s a one stop shop, a very efficient use of my time."

David Sutton Dabbah
President & CEO, Grupo Alvear

"I am proud to participate in this event and I think it is very important because it nourishes us from the experience from all over the world and Argentina is positioned as the place that it always had to be and I believe with projections towards the future."

Isabel Noboa
CEO, Consorcio Nobis

"Hemos estados muy contentos, creo que todos los participantes de este evento que tan bien ha organizado SAHIC, realmente mis felicitaciones para ellos. Ha habido grandes marcas internacionales que han sido muy talentosas para poderse reunir inclusive con las personas adecuadas, ha habido muchas conversaciones internas y creo que la conclusión más importante de este evento podría ser de que uniendo esfuerzo, podemos lograr realmente mejorar el turismo nuestro internacionalmente"

Christopher J. Nassetta
President & CEO, Hilton

"It was really important for me to be at SAHIC this year because we’ve had a longstanding relationship with this conference, I think since the origin and always have found it to be an incredibly useful conference because in Latin America, which is a critically important part of our business it gets all of the leaders around the region together to talk about the issues that are most important, to advance our causes in the hospitality space. It also has all of the people that are the most influential whether that be in the business or governments in one place and so a very efficient way to both understand what is going on and to connect with the people who are the most important decision makers."
