The 2nd Indonesian Hotel Investment Conference (IHIC 2014) has confirmed I Gede Ardika, the former Minister for Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Indonesia as a keynote speaker to open the event to be held at the Grand Nikko Bali in Nusa Dua on Friday, June 6, 2014.

The IHIC 2014 is sponsored by the Bali Hotels Association and co-hosted by Horwath HTL.

Ardika, a native of Bali, prior to his retirement served a distinguished career in government service culminating in the role of Minister for Culture and Tourism during the administrations of both Abdurrachman Wahid and Megawati Soekarnoputri (2000-2004). Leading an active retirement, Ardika is a much sought-after speaker at international conferences, as a guest lecturer at leading Indonesian universities, is a member of the Eminent Persons’ Group of Republic of Indonesia and serves as a member of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics of the United Nations World Tourism Organization.

The former Minister is known for his ardent advocacy of people-based tourism, cultural and heritage preservation, and an industry-wide reconsideration of what constitutes sustainability in tourism terms.

A thought provoking opening address will help set the tone for the day-long IHIC 2014 that will attract some of Indonesia’s and the region’s most active players in the tourist accommodation sector including property owners, investors, hotel executives, principal from management companies, money managers, bankers, lawyers, architects and design experts, and property consultants.

The plenary and breakout sessions that comprise the remainder of the day will feature speakers and panelists who will examine the Indonesian hotel investment outlook; present statistical reviews on the state of the Indonesian hotel industry; explore investment opportunities in Bali and beyond; discuss sustainability issues for the accommodation sector; provide insights on new trends in design and product innovation; look at new approaches to product financing; consider the growing role of OTAs, channel distribution and social media; and learn how Indonesian accommodation companies are tackling the issue of successful branding.

Jean-Charles Le Coz, the vice chairman of the BHA, said: “The BHA is deeply honored by Bapak Ardika’s acceptance of our invitation to present the opening address at the Indonesian Hotel Investment Conference 2014 this June in Bali. His outstanding service to tourism in the Republic and his continuing crusade asking penetrating and much-needed questions on how tourism should be developed, will stimulate a lively dialogue at IHIC and beyond.”

Participants at IHIC 2014 will have abundant opportunities to interact with leaders from the Indonesian and regional accommodation sector over coffee breaks, a power lunch and a private sunset networking cocktail event.
