The second edition of the Forum de l’Investissement Hôtelier Africain (FIHA) will take place at the Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire, Côte d'Ivoire with the support of our host sponsor Accor. The inaugural event in February 2019 was an outstanding success with more than 300 delegates attending, from 28 countries.
FIHA is a sister event of the Africa Hotel Investment Forum and was launched to unite North and West African countries in a bid to develop their economies and support hospitality investment. FIHA connects business leaders from the international and local markets, driving investment into tourism projects, infrastructure, entertainment and hotel development across the region.
"Selecting Cote d’Ivoire to host FIHA is proof that the country deserves its ranking as third most important destination in Africa for business tourism. It also demonstrates investor confidence in our ambition to boost our tourism and hospitality industries. It will be an opportunity for the sector to showcase its potential, projects and tourism assets. Our “Sublime Côte d’Ivoire” tourism strategy, aims to propel tourism as the 3rd pillar of our country’s economy. It is guided by a triple purpose: to fuel a growth engine for GDP, to promote local development and to drive skilled and un-skilled employment opportunities."
Siandou Fofana, Minister of Tourism, Côte d’Ivoire
