News for the Hospitality Executive
2010 Offers a Quick "Download"
AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA (May 5, 2010) — From the hottest hospitality technology products to finding solutions to technology issues, the 2010 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®) focuses on the latest in hospitality technology. The conference is June 21-24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Attendees that register by May 14 can save $100 on the full conference registration fee.
HITEC, produced by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), is the world's largest hospitality technology exposition and conference. It offers attendees a one-stop shop for essential education, access to experts and hospitality technology vendors, networking with top leaders in the industry and the resources to find cost-effective ways to improve company bottom lines.
"Attending HITEC is the most efficient way hospitality professionals to get a quick 'download' of everything that is hot, new or emerging," said Cindy Estis Green, managing partner for The Estis Group, co-chair of the HITEC Advisory Council and 2009 inductee into the International Hospitality Technology Hall of Fame. "If you don't have time to read all the magazines, absorb all the online newsletters or attend many conferences, in a four-day window, anyone can get completely current on where the industry is now and where it is heading."
An added bonus on the exhibit hall floor are the free education sessions in the exhibitor tutorial rooms. During each half-hour session, attendees learn basic information to make them more informed buyers. The sessions are offered by exhibitors and are presented in a non-sales environment.
Industry events and organization meetings to be held in conjunction with HITEC include HFTP's Club and Hotel Controllers Conference, HSMAI's Revenue Management & Internet Marketing Strategy Conference, Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, AH&LA, iHITA, the University of Delaware - IT Advisory Board and more.
