AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA (November 16, 2023) — Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) is pleased to announce a selection of authoritative organizations as sponsors for its new European event: Digital Horizons 360 Symposium (DH360), with Fourteen IP as its exclusive Level I sponsor. This invitation-only symposium will span two-days, February 20-21, at the Palau de Congressos de Palma in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. DH360 is a non-sales event for hospitality leaders to participate in roundtable discussions on the technologies set to have the biggest industry impact in Europe.
HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe said, “The driving thread through DH360 is the opportunity to explore pressing technology issues faced by the European hospitality industry, where all angles of the selected topics are dissected. With the support and input of our sponsors, participants will benefit from their extensive and globe-spanning experience in a straightforward, informational discussion. We are grateful for their support and recognition of this inaugural symposium, which we expect to become a key event going forward.”
Fourteen IP is a global systems integrator to the hospitality industry providing cloud telephony, guest internet access and AI powered virtual agent solutions across Europe, North America and Mexico. Fourteen IP supports leading hotels and groups worldwide, together with individual boutique and independent hotels.
Company representatives will provide a starting brief at its roundtable with a current perspective on the fast-growing, AI-powered technology segment based on the development and deployment of its solutions. This will be followed by a robust and moderated dialog with senior technology leaders attending the Symposium.
Fourteen IP CEO Neil Tolley said, “We are excited to be sponsoring and participating in this inaugural technology symposium. We welcome the opportunity to share our experiences, challenges and successes in the development and support of what we consider to be the foremost AI-powered voice assistant solution for hotels. We look forward to engaging with hospitality leaders from across Europe and leading a roundtable discussion focused on AI, which will include prominent figures from the AI industry.”
Additionally, Level 2 sponsors will lead other sessions on the program: Venza Group on cybersecurity and EHL on talent acquisition and retention.
DH360 was created in response to a growing interest in an event of this kind, a goal for DH360 is to establish an EU hospitality technology ‘thought leadership community.’ The program will elevate the relevant discussions beyond the traditional hospitality tech supply chain.
Key to the impact and endurance of this event is resulting coverage of the discussions. To assist, HFTP has partnered with EHL to moderate and publish a follow-up report. Also partnering with HFTP on this event is hospitality media company Hospitality Net.
Top European hospitality executives such as CIOs, vice presidents, IT leaders and decision-makers are invited to submit their interest to attend.
