Follow your own agenda with a choice of two streams over the 2 days:

Stream  I: Masterplanning, Design & Technologies                     

With the sheer magnitude of Resorts, masterplanning is a basis to provide facts on existing conditions and trends, enabling decision makers to better understand the impacts of such a development. This information can be used in deciding and prioritising what kind of projects to undertake including identifying the infrastructure requirements and public amenities.

With more emerging economies jumping on the band wagon to develop Resorts, a fresh outlook on design is taken where thanks to the modern traveller’s lifestyles, it is becoming less common for resorts to be designed exclusively for business travellers or leisure guests. Here we will examine the challenges of embarking on a new Integrated Resort as well as refurbishing and renovating for existing property owners. This stream will also showcase cutting edge technologies in the hospitality industry and embrace new developments of Integrated Resorts in the emerging and existing markets.

Stream II: Commercialisation & Development

With limited resources, varied capabilities and new technologies, companies are looking for creative new concepts to introduce into Resorts. Product development is a prerequisite for satisfying tourist’s needs and changing demands as well as ensuring profitability in a highly competitive industry. Funding for large scale projects like Resorts is a complex area, and there are specific challenges involved in creating the appropriate finance structures to manage risks effectively. Project finance requires multidisciplinary teams from economists, engineers, accountants and finance specialist all need to work together to ensure that a project achieves its funding objectives. This event will give delegates the opportunity to meet with key people from the public and private sectors alike to determine solutions and address the challenges of financing such large scale projects.
