TourismROI joins forces with IHIF


NEW YORK, NY and London, UK – TourismROI, LLC announced today that it has been selected as the Official Destination Sponsor for the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF) 2009 to be held in Berlin, Germany on March 9-11, 2009. According to the parties involved, this partnership opens the door for destinations around the world to showcase their investment opportunities directly to Europe’s largest group of senior hospitality industry executives and investors.

“During the current economic and financial crisis, one of the biggest challenges for destinations is to provide sufficient information and context to position, and promote and differentiate their investment opportunities to potential investors,” said Richard Miller, chief executive officer of TourismROI. “This is what TourismROI does best. Our primary focus is to help destinations organize and structure their information so they can put their best foot forward when investors come looking. At IHIF, we’re taking that mission one step further and giving them the opportunity to network and pitch their opportunities directly to Europe’s senior industry influencers.”
