WHO ATTENDS

In 2016, the Canadian Hotel Investment Conference (CHIC) celebrated its 20th Anniversary. First launched in 1997, CHIC has established itself as the definitive source for information, insight and opinion on today’s Canadian lodging market. For senior level executives from across North America this business conference delivers outstanding insight on where the industry is today, where it’s heading and the options it can deliver.

Hard-hitting sessions and powerful industry panels zero in on lodging development, investment and finance to reveal viable opportunities, future trends and up-to-the minute cross country performance. Critical insights from experts, shared information from industry insiders and important one-on-one networking all come together in a program that has become a “must-do” annual event.
