“I am a first time attendee to SASMEA. The conference provided great content and takes a unique approach to doing business – the environment is very engaging to doing business and I had quality conversations with the participants. There was a good number of hospitality and hotel investors not only from the Middle East but also East Africa. I look forward to participating in 2018!”
