The event will be held on the 15th and 16th October at the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Kowloon in Hong Kong.

Ettridge will be moderating a panel on consumer finance and welcoming guests at the gala dinner to be hosted by Interval. Joe Hickman, Interval’s vice president and executive director for Asia-Pacific, will participate on a conference panel entitled “Would you rather a seat at the table or be on the menu?” that will examine regulatory initiatives across the region. Also in attendance from Interval will be Kit Whalley, director of business development for Asia-Pacific.
The conference is expected to attract more than 200 delegates from across Asia and beyond, including government officials, tourism organizations, tourism policy makers and regional hospitality companies. Other delegates anticipated to attend are domestic and international hotel and resort owners and operators, resort management and shared ownership companies, fractional sales and marketing companies, and real estate developers.
