HFTP to Expand CIO Summits to New Markets

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) is currently developing and organizing CIO Summits (including de-facto CIOs who might have other titles) that will take place outside of the USA in 2016 and beyond.

These exclusive, invitation-only, boutique events will be designed to unite the technology professionals leading the hospitality industry around the globe for the purpose of education, networking and industry growth.

Currently, HFTP is the sole association sponsor and partner with Hospitality Upgrade, who organizes the hospitality CIO Summit in the USA, said HFTP CEO, Frank Wolfe, CAE. HFTP is leveraging our network, experience and expertise to spread those opportunities outside the USA where our presence is most requested.

Each summit to be produced by HFTP will have a planning team comprised of HFTP staff, HFTP partners, as well as, qualified executives in the industry.

The summit agendas will be created by C-levels for C-levels to ensure relevant and engaging topics are being addressed and that each event is highly interactive and valuable.

The events are also intended to create a non-sales event cocoon for the attendees and will have limited supplier attendance.

In addition to the educational opportunities for attendees, the information collected throughout the summits will be aggregated and presented in white papers to educate hospitality consumers, hoteliers and suppliers.

The events will also assist HFTP in keeping the worlds only hospitality technology certification program, the Certified Hospitality Technology Professional (CHTP) relevant.
