Welcome to CHICOS 2014!

The Caribbean Hotel Investment Conference & Operations Summit (CHICOS) is the region’s must attend hospitality and tourism investment conference. CHICOS is organized by HVS and co-hosted by a partnership with the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO). The event provides attendees with the opportunity to significantly expand their network while learning the most important trends that can impact their investment decisions.

The Caribbean Hotel Investment Conference & Operations Summit has proven itself as the premier hospitality conference in the region.  In its 4th year, this event brings together more than 300 regional and international investors and operators as well as the region’s leading decision makers. Also attending and speaking are governmental representatives, opinion leaders, developers, bankers and other lenders, tourism officials, investment funds, hotel chain executives, individuals/companies seeking investors for their tourism projects, franchise and operations companies, public and private institutions, consultants, advisors and architects and designers – all to discuss the region’s markets and possibilities.


CHICOS is tasked with showcasing the many different exotic islands and spectacular hotels throughout the Caribbean chain. For 2014, the organizers decided to return to the beautiful Dominican Republic and first class Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana.  The Dominican Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and leads the Caribbean region with the most annual visitors on an annual basis.
