BCQS International directors, Sanjay Amin, Liam Day and James Slattery recently attended the 8th Annual South American Hotel Investment Conference, SAHIC, held at the Westin Lima Hotel and Convention Center in Lima, Peru on 28th and 29th September.

During an Information-packed two days, more than 350 delegates from 20 countries gathered at SAHIC. Renowned as the premier event for the hospitality industry in the region, SAHIC is known throughout the hotel investment world as the place where "deals get done." SAHIC has evolved into the must-attend event for anyone with hospitality development interests in the region, and where international brands share their breaking news.

James Slattery, BCQS' Director with overall responsibility for Latin America, moderated a lively panel discussion entitled 'Lifestyle Hotels + Boutique Hotels: Are these products new concepts for the Luxury Experience?' The open debate and discussion covered Trends and Trade-offs, discussing "lifestyle" versus traditional branding and going deeper into understanding exalted and true Luxury experiences.

Speaking about the conference Liam Day commented, 'This is the eighth event organised by HVS specifically focused on the South American hospitality sector and the sixth year we have been one of the main sponsors. The conference gives us the opportunity to market to new and existing clients our increased ability to provide services on projects throughout Central America, via our strategic alliances in both Panama and Colombia.'
