Donald Trump Jr, vice president of development & acquisitions for The Trump Organisation, has confirmed his participation at the second Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC), to be held on April 29 - May 1 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai. Trump Jr will debate investment and development in Arabia with Sarmad Zok, chief executive officer of Kingdom Hotel Investments, and Richard Stockton, Morgan Stanley’s head of Middle East real estate and Lodging Investment Banking. “The Trump Organisation recognised early on the significant investment opportunities available in the Arabian region as a result of a high level of liquidity, along with a tourism and real estate driven boom, fuelled in part by a tax-free environment,” Trump Jr said. Heading up The Trump Organisation’s first move into the Middle East, Trump Jr was at the forefront of the group’s high-profile investment with Nakheel LLC, developer of more than $30 billion in real estate in Dubai. Together, both companies signed a joint venture to develop extensive real estate offerings throughout the Middle East. The first project will be The Palm Trump International Hotel & Tower on The Palm, Jumeirah in Dubai. Both companies will be investing substantially in the $400 million condominium-hotel development. “We will develop 17 of our brands in Dubai alone, in one of the largest mass new initiatives of the group. Dubai is growing exponentially, but with a real commitment to quality that has been underwritten by international developers and their brands,” said Trump Jr. Private and public sector co-operation is one of the key messages for this year’s AHIC, which will run under the theme Oasis or Mirage, as delegates and industry experts reflect and debate on the huge investment and project initiatives in Arabia. “The conference focus has always been geared towards investment, and to fast-track opportunities available in this forum. We will debate issues as diverse as economic and industry trends, investment opportunities, finance issues, construction and design, sustainable development, condos and management contracts,” said Jonathan Worsley conference organiser.
