Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 23 June 2015

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP), producers of the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC), has confirmed that it will expand the event globally by also producing HITEC Europe and HITEC Asia in 2017.

HITEC Asia and HITEC Europe will follow the format of the original and hugely successful HITEC, which is held each year in a different city in the United States.

Expanding HITEC to Asia and Europe has been a goal HFTP has worked towards for some time and I am thrilled we are ready to take the next step, said HFTP Global President Daniel Conti, CHAE, CAM, director of finance for the Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place. As a global association with members spanning six continents, we believe that the expansion of HITEC will be an opportunity to build the exchange of information within the hospitality technology community, which has gained great importance within the industry.

HITEC 2015 was held 15-18 June at the Austin Convention Center in Texas. The event attracted 6,051 hospitality professionals representing 55 countries.

The conference, which had over 115 speakers with 70 educational sessions, addressed important issues including system selection, mobile and guestroom technology, data security, PCI compliance and more.

The exhibit floor was home to 823 exhibit booths showcasing the latest in hospitality technology products and services.

After 43 years, HFTP has built the resources for a successful event which has continued to build annually, said Frank Wolfe, CAE, HFTP CEO. We have recently worked with other hospitality allied associations on smaller events in Asia and Europe, and are confident that combining that experience with the HITEC team will result in two more events that will be of value to the hospitality technology industry at large.
