AUSTIN, TEXAS (June 13) -In an effort to maintain a safe and secure environment for HITEC (Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference) 2013 participants, participants will notice additional safety measures have been implemented for this year's event in Minneapolis, MN. Other steps taken will be invisible to the participants but are much like you would experience at any conference of the magnitude of HITEC.

Probably the most visible to the registrants will be having to show identification for their credentials, pick them up individually, and wear both a HITEC badge and a HITEC wristband at all times.

Another new added security feature this year will be an opportunity for participants who opt into the HITEC 2013 smart device app, to receive instant text messages from HFTP show management.

"HFTP has always used top notch security consultants who provide the security for the Consumer Electronics Show to help us maintain safety. We also use a variety of off duty police offers, video surveillance during our exhibits move in and move out, plus we have many volunteers who are on the lookout for any mischief." Said Frank Wolfe, HFTP's CEO. "HITEC does not expect problems, but we want to prepare for them just in case.
