Guam delegation attending Singapore event

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Members from the Guam Economic Development Authority and the Guam Visitors Bureau are in Singapore this week attending the yearly update of the Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific 2014. GEDA administrator Henry Taitano tells KUAM that the delegation will be on hand for the mid-yearly forum that keeps stakeholders in touch with the latest developments and markets in the region with a special focus on Southeast Asia. Taitano says the group will continue to raise awareness about Guam and more importantly interest in getting investments to the island. The scope of work will be to present the entire landscape of hotel row to include the New Dusit Thani along with efforts to improve the qualifying certificate program for hotels. He says part of that discussion may once again involve the Oka Point property in which GEDA recently submitted a determination of need. No developer or investor has expressed interest just yet. The HICAP update is set for March 18 and 19 at the Pan Pacific Hotel with the main conference set for October in Hong Kong.
