THINC Africa 2017

THINC Africa 2017

The inaugural THINC Africa event, hosted by HVS was successful held at the Radisson Waterfront Hotel, Cape Town in September 2016.  The conference attracted speakers and delegates from across Africa, Europe and the Middle East to debate the key issues affecting hotel investment in Africa.  Keynote speakers included politicians and one-on-one interviews with senior representatives of major international brands.

Delegate numbers are limited to 200 senior personnel at THINC Africa to ensure all participants have the opportunity to meet, learn from and interact with decision makers.  Panel discussions are longer than other conferences with fewer panel members, enabling detailed discussion and interaction with the audience to ensure the topics affecting delegates are debated at length.
