HFTP Partners European Hospitality Technology Educational Conference (EHTEC)
with the Hospitality Professionals Association Conference & Exposition (HOSPACE)

EHTEC@HOSPACE to be Held in London November 25, 2011

AUSTIN, TEXAS (September 21, 2011) — Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) announced today that it is partnering its popular European Hospitality Technology Educational Conference (EHTEC) with the Hospitality Professionals Association Conference & Exposition (HOSPACE). HOSPACE is produced by HOSPA (‘Hospitality Professionals Association’ for Finance, Revenue Management and IT) — formerly known as BAHA (British Association of Hospitality Accountants).

EHTEC@HOSPACE is November 25, 2011 at Sofitel London Heathrow, Terminal 5 in London.

"The BAHA Annual Conference and IT Exposition, now renamed HOSPACE 2011, has been one of the most prestigious and informative business events for the UK hospitality industry, and HFTP has supported it and shared in its success for the last few years. Partnering EHTEC and HOSPACE is a good fit for both associations and for hospitality finance and technology professionals," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "With the global economic climate still recovering, it allows hospitality professionals to attend two popular European hospitality conferences for the price of one."

EHTEC@HOSPACE will follow HOSPA's one-day conference on November 24. HOSPACE's education includes a wide-range of topics such as revenue management, hotel finance, a hospitality IT debate, various workshops and more. The second day of education will be complimentary for HOSPACE attendees, focusing on hospitality technology topics important to Europe. The EHTEC@HOSPACE education program will be announced soon.

"Since 2007, EHTEC has been instrumental in bringing the latest information to its attendees by focusing on tough hospitality technology issues found in Europe," said Carl Weldon, CEO of HOSPA. "We are excited to partner with EHTEC to provide HOSPACE attendees with bonus education and networking opportunities."
