New HFTP Conference Focuses on the Growing Demands
and Expanding Job Responsibilities of Financial and
Technology Professionals
AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA (February 12, 2010) Recognizing the growing demands of the hospitality professional, Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) has created the HFTP Development Conference. This one-and-a-half day conference offers quality education and networking that emphasizes technology for the non-IT professional, human resources and leadership development. The conference is March 15-16, 2010 at the InterContinental Hotel in New Orleans, La. 

Developed from a survey of hospitality professionals, the conference program was designed to meet expanding job responsibilities. Topics cover technology trends in the hospitality industry, leadership lessons from Hurricane Katrina, IT solutions for smaller properties, human resources help, fraud trends and more. 

"The 2008 HFTP Compensations & Benefits Survey showed hospitality professionals have a diverse range of job functions, spending up to 40 percent of their time on tasks unrelated to their job title. With budgets being tightened, their roles have increased even more than just a couple years ago," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "The Development Conference was created with this in mind, providing an opportunity for professionals to get educated on topics that pertain to their broadening job responsibilities."
