The Premier Nordic Hotel Industry Conference

About the Hotel Investment Conference

The NHC Conference is the leading international hotel investment and development conference focusing on the Nordic hotel market. The conference has successfully been organized since 2009 (previously the HotCop conference) and grown to become the premier Nordic hotel investment and development event. The conference offers extensive knowledge and information sharing with a combination of presentations, interview sessions and panel discussions with some of the top-level executives from the Nordic as well as the international hotel market. It is the networking platform bringing together investors, developers, financiers and operators creating a unique ”deal-making venue”.
