Beyond the dual core components of exhibits and education at the 2023 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®), attendees will have multiple opportunities for networking when they are in Toronto on June 26–29. A highlight is the newly-added HFTP Women in Hospitality Technology Reception on Wednesday, June 28. The elegant affair is designed to bring together women from across the industry leading the way in technology and innovation. Corresponding with the event, HFTP will distribute a publication highlighting the influence of women industry professionals. Supporting this program as sponsor is Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI), an HFTP Corporate Allied Sponsor and HITEC 2023 exhibitor.
“HFTP has long-championed the accomplishments of the influential women in the hospitality industry, through editorial profiles and events, as well as leadership positions on the association’s advisory boards,” said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe, CAE. “As we get back to adding key components to HITEC, after a few unusual years, our planning team felt it was essential to add the reception to this year’s program. It will be a wonderful opportunity for attendees to connect through their mutual experiences in a lively atmosphere.”
CSI’s Juliann Pless, SVP of Travel Payment Solutions, said, “It is exciting to see HFTP creating a forum for Women in Hospitality Technology to come together and learn from and support one another. CSI is honored to sponsor this inaugural event and help pave the way for women’s leadership in the hospitality technology space. The growth and innovation that results from like-minded individuals working together will continue to help propel the industry forward.”
