HFTP Seeks Technologies for Next Version of GUESTROOM 20X


AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA (October 29, 2009) – Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) and the GUESTROOM 20X Task Force, a group of hospitality technology leaders and experts, are searching for the latest and near-future technologies for the newest version of GUESTROOM 20X. The 2010 version of GUESTROOM 20X, a special exhibit showcasing the most innovative technologies for the guestroom, debuts at the 2010 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®) June 22-24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. USA.

"Since 2006, GUESTROOM 20X has garnered a reputation as providing a thought-provoking glimpse into the possibilities of future guestroom technologies," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "With a switch to a biannual schedule for the exhibit, the GUESTROOM 20X Task Force has more time to search and can raise the bar on finding the best technologies that can enhance the future guestroom."

HFTP is conducting a comprehensive global search for the industry's most innovative technologies. Potential technologies include, but are not limited to, traditional technologies like next-generation televisions, non-traditional technologies like lighting and green technologies like energy-saving devices.

Hospitality technology suppliers, consumer technology companies, inventors and others who have a technology product that should be considered for display must apply by Wednesday, March 31. You do not have to be a member of HFTP or a current HITEC 2010 exhibitor to participate. Submissions are considered and carefully chosen by the GUESTROOM 20X Task Force.

About GUESTROOM 20X
GUESTROOM 20X is a futuristic guestroom featuring the latest and near-future technologies for the modern hotel room. HFTP produces a new version of the special exhibit every other year. It debuted at HITEC 2006 and has been on display at various trade shows since. After many requests to show GUESTROOM 20X, HFTP created a portable presentation detailing the room's technologies that can easily travel to the global hospitality community.
