Mariano Faz, Head of Asset Management at TFG Asset Management, recently represented our firm as a panelist at the 14th edition of The Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC), which was staged for the first time in Ras Al Khaimah from 17 - 19 April.

Organised by Bench Events in partnership with MEED Events, AHIC is the region’s largest annual hotel industry conference that provides a knowledge-sharing and networking platform for global and regional investors. Regularly attended by the biggest hotel operators and hotel investors from all around the world, the event facilitates direct connections with hospitality industry stakeholders.

This year the event took place under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah. Ras al Khaimah is fast-developing as one of the UAE’s most popular hotel investment and tourism destinations.

Mariano Faz was invited as a panelist to discuss the topic of “Collaborative Asset Management”. He was joined on the panel by industry experts Khalib Anib, CEO of Abu Dhabi National Hotels, Zoltan Kali, Division Head of Assets & Fund Management, Oman Tourism Development Co. and Francois Kassab, Managing Director MEA for Melia Hotels International. With international operators and hotel investors in attendance, debate was lively. The hospitality market in Dubai is moving from a revenue management model to a costs management market. Each panelist offered key insights into how industry stakeholders can work together to maximise overall performance.

AHIC remains one of the most important events for the Middle East hospitality industry and TFG Asset Management is pleased to contribute to its ongoing success.
