RLA’s Roger Allen - RLA Group CEO recently spoke at the Tourism, Hotel, Investment & Networking Conference (THINC) Africa 2017 which was held August 30th and 31st August, at the FNB Portside Building, Cape Town, South Africa.

THINC Africa provides a unique platform to discuss the future of the tourism and hotel industry in the region. The event will bring together key decision makers, from across hotel development and investment markets, to explore the tremendous opportunities that the region presents and deliberate on how to mitigate the potential risks of hotel development in Africa.

Roger Allen took part in a thought provoking panel discussion titled ‘Alternative Hotels’, which explored the many realms of concepts that push the envelope beyond that of the traditional hotel thinking. The topic was moderated by Dimitris Mankis - Vice President Business Development, RCI Europe, Middle East and Africa and panelists include Bani Haddad - Founder and Managing Director, Aleph Hospitality, Kim Whitaker - CEO, Once Youth Hotels, Jonas Schwarz Lausten - Co-Owner & Co-Founder Nordic Hotels.
