wide range of technology advances in hospitality. Key topics on
agenda planned for 1-3 December in Macau include hotel data security,

HTNG members meet to collaborate, learn, network and determine how to capitalize on the latest advances in hospitality technology to improve their operations—whether as hoteliers or technology providers. As an association whose direction is determined by a board that consists of many of the world’s leading hotel company CIOs, HTNG meeting content is truly top-of-mind for hotel technologists.
Immediately preceding this year’s event will be the first Hotel IT Directors’ Roundtable for the Asia-Pacific region. This exclusive collaborative event for senior level hotel technology leaders is available at no charge to attendees, who will gather to share experiences and perspective on the greatest challenges facing their hotel IT teams. The Hotel IT Directors’ Roundtable convenes on Wednesday afternoon, 1 December, just prior to the HTNG Members’ Meeting, which runs from Wednesday evening through Friday 3 December.
The agenda for the main Members’ Meeting includes sessions from some of the industry’s leading technology names from the hotel community, technology vendor community, and industry associations. These distinguished experts and some of their unique sessions include:
In all, the meeting will provide hotel technology experts with leading-edge knowledge on technology best practices, improving the guest experience through faster and more robust deployment of technology, and a better understanding of gains to be made by upcoming enhancements in hospitality technology.
