HVS is pleased to announce the third Tourism, Hotel Investment & Networking Conference (THINC) Africa 2018 will be held on 5th and 6th September, 2018, at Century City Conference Centre, Cape Town.

Southern Africa is rapidly gaining significance in the global tourism industry, establishing itself as a must-see destination as well as a valuable investment playground. THINC Africa provides a unique platform to discuss the future of the tourism and hotel industry in this region. Building on the immense success of the inaugural conference last year when we welcomed almost 160 delegates from Africa and across the globe.  The event will continue to bring together key decision makers, from across hotel development and investment markets, to explore the tremendous opportunities that this region presents and deliberate on how to mitigate the potential risks of hotel development in Africa.

This two-day event provides ample opportunities to network with peers and business contacts, allowing delegates to discover new and exciting opportunities in this fast expanding market.

THINC Africa creates an exceptional forum for knowledge sharing, collaboration and business generation, in a stimulating environment.
