The Arabian Hotel Investment Conference 2018 (AHIC) will welcome Sir Ranulph Fiennes on Thursday, April 19 to deliver the event's closing speech.

Described by the Guinness Book of Records as the 'World’s Greatest Living Explorer', Fiennes is the first person to reach both the North and South Poles by foot and for completing seven marathons on seven continents (including Antarctica) in seven days – soon after receiving emergency heart surgery. He is also the oldest Briton to conquer Mount Everest, having made it to the summit at the age of 65.

His keynote speech is set to give the 700+ hotel investors, developers, financiers, and C-level hotel executives in attendance a perspective on the parallels of surviving the challenges of an expedition in nature and surviving the business world.
