AOCAP 2013 Conference
Alternative Ownership : Building the Platform for Growth
Hong Kong 15th and 16th October 2013
The 2013 Alternative Ownership Conference Asia-Pacific will build on the success of past events through delivery of a stimulating and topical program, examining many of the region’s current challenges, with presentations from some of the Global Industry’s most respected leaders.
Sessions will focus upon the recreational real estate and resort development industry’s latest concepts and offerings, the industry’s evolving Business Models and especially, the particular challenges related to product structuring within a number of the regional jurisdictions The focus will once again return to mixed use projects and look at some of the issues related to developing and operating hotels and resorts which include branded residences, condo-hotel-type products, serviced apartments, other amenities and communal and retail spaces.
AOCAP 2013 will take a fresh look at the region’s travel and tourism forecasts and dynamic trends, fuelled by the emerging middle classes within a number of the ASEAN countries, their thirst for outbound travel, the increasing numbers of new aircraft being delivered to the region’s carriers and the growth in airport development.
Likewise, some of the constraints to growth will be examined in order to determine what needs to be done if emerging destinations are to achieve their full tourism potential. A number of the ASEAN markets have within the last year or so, demonstrated a healthy appetite for acquiring recreational real estate, based upon their liking for passive income and the prospect of capital appreciation. How are the regional Developers responding to meet these new market demands?
AOCAP 2013 will examine the most recent regulatory initiatives and look at some of the lessons which can be learned by reference to regulatory evolution in mature markets. This topic in particular, will make AOCAP, 2013 a must attend for policy makers and senior executives within national or regional tourism organizations, as well as for the industry’s regional legal advisors.
The year 2015 sees the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community based upon the Blueprint: “ASEAN as a Single Market and Production Base” comprising five core elements: (i) free flow of goods; (ii) free flow of services; (iii) free flow of investment; (iv) free flow of capital; and (v) free flow of skilled labour.
With 580 million people within the AEC’s ten countries, the launch will likely present significant opportunities to developers wishing to expand their businesses into neighbouring countries. These opportunities will be examined in detail so as to determine how the market for recreational real estate and shared ownership might respond.
AOCAP 2103 will be another unmissable event for those who develop, own, operate, market or sell purpose-built mixed use resorts, incorporating recreational real estate including shared ownership, as well as those contemplating the potential conversion or renovation of an existing development.
AOCAP 2013 will provide the ideal platform for government officials, tourism organizations, tourism policy makers and regional hospitality companies to learn more about this dynamic segment of the international tourism industry and will once again deliver an abundance of knowledge, insight and understanding to domestic and international hotel & resort owners and operators, resort management and shared ownership companies, fractional sales & marketing companies, real estate developers, tourism authorities, lifestyle companies and the press.
