The BHN Group and parent company Northstar Travel Group announced Friday the postponement of the 2021 Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) and Alternative Ownership Conference Asia Pacific (AOCAP) events until 2022.
HICAP was originally scheduled for 20-22 October 2021 at the Fairmont Singapore & Swissotel The Stamford. AOCAP was originally set for 19-20 October 2021 at the same venue. Both conferences will be rescheduled for October 2022. Specific dates and venue will be announced soon. Registered delegates for the 2021 conferences will be contacted regarding rolling over registrations to 2022.
The BHN Group will host complimentary HICAP online virtual events on 28 October 2021 and 16 March 2022 at 11:00am SGT to help the Asia Pacific region’s hotel-investment remain informed of key trends and insights. Registration for the 28 October event is scheduled to open in early October. A complimentary online virtual AOCAP event to address current trends and insights into the alternative ownership industry is scheduled for 20 April 2022 at 11:00am SGT. Further details for the online programs will be released at a later date.
“We’re disappointed that we cannot move forward with HICAP and AOCAP with an in-person format in 2021,” said Jeff Higley, President of The BHN Group. “Ensuring a safe environment for delegates and staff is our top priority. The current COVID-19 situation in Singapore places uncertainty on that mission, and restrictions on networking and international travel also had a major influence on our decision to postpone the events.”
“We look forward to continuing the traditions of these conferences with virtual components and ultimately the live, in-person events that have ample networking opportunities and histories of being major influencers throughout the region and the world,” he added.
"The BHN Group commends the efforts of the staffs of the Singapore Tourism Board and the Fairmont Singapore & Swissotel The Stamford for their efforts in trying to make the events happen."
