People, Product and Performance in a period of
Unprecedented Growth


Mark your calendars: the Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition (AHICE) is set to return to Melbourne in 2019 with two action-packed, creative, inspiring and informative days on May 1 and 2.

At AHICE 2019, hosted by HM and to be held at Grand Hyatt Melbourne, hear from the best and learn from the best as investment, management, innovation and information collide at the year’s most inspiring and educational hotel industry conference in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

With the theme of ‘People, Product and Performance in a period of Unprecedented Growth’, AHICE promises to be one of the biggest events on the Australian hotel industry calendar, particularly on the back of strong momentum from the 2018 event, which drew a record crowd of over 800 owners, hoteliers, suppliers and leading consultants.

AHICE 2019 already has strong backing, with industry heavyweights Hostplus and Intrust Super on-board as Diamond Sponsors.

In the past 10 years, AHICE has become the largest and leading hotel ownership and operations conference in Australasia, with speakers flying in from across the globe (from New York, London, Honolulu, Singapore, Tokyo, Jakarta, Bangkok, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Los Angeles, Shanghai and Hong Kong amongst other destinations), while local talent also hailed from right across Australia and New Zealand.

The event has become a must-attend event for owners, hoteliers, suppliers and leading consultants and at AHICE 2018, over 10 new deals and signings were announced, while several major supplier deals were also autographed.
