New Perspectives for the Indian Hospitality Industry: HICSA 2015 Now in New Delhi! 

The year 2015 will see the 10-year old and much established Hotel Investment Conference - South Asia (HICSA) getting a ‘brand new makeover’. After its decade-long spell in Mumbai, relocating to the capital city was a conscientious decision by the organizers towards this objective. To be held at the JW Marriott Aerocity New Delhi on 7 & 8 April 2015, the conference program will see several fresh concepts and interesting elements being introduced this year, offering its participants something new and different from what they have witnessed in the past. Above all, with the Hon’ble Prime Minister recently launching the Make in India campaign and the Tourism & Hospitality Sector being one of the critical components of this major national program, the 11th edition of HICSA will be of special significance. The conference will aim to further the 'Make in India' vision, providing a platform for dialogue and deliberation on the growth and direction of the hotel and tourism industry, and synergizing the objectives of the government with the global and regional players in the industry.
