Welcome to my HITEC Orlando 2022 pre-arrival blog post. I would like to thank the crew at HFTP for picking me as 1 of this year’s visitor bloggers. Also, be sure to test out Jennifer Jones’ posts. She and I are each back for encore appearances as HITEC guest bloggers.
Setting up way back again in 1997, HITEC turned the most important annual celebration on my work calendar. It turned a a great deal-predicted crack from the month-to-month grind at function. Each and every 12 months had its very own celebratory really feel as I reconnected with my escalating community of business leaders that shared a common fascination.
This calendar year, 2022, marks a few added causes to celebrate.
- HITEC celebrates its 50th Anniversary: HITEC has developed over the several years to turn into the single most-essential celebration for hospitality technology. In my feeling, the serious attraction for this celebration is the harmony that exists involving the trade demonstrate exhibits and the instructional sessions. I surprise how quite a few of this year’s vendors can say they have been represented in all 50 previous HITECs.
- Welcome back again to our global partners and attendees: HITEC 2021 was a welcomed opportunity to meet up with once more experience-to-deal with. HITEC 2022 will be even superior as we welcome so many of our intercontinental members, sellers and attendees that have been underneath journey constraints nine months in the past.
- HFTP celebrates its 70th Anniversary this year: Mark your calendar for September 14-16 for the HFTP 2022 Yearly Conference getting location in Austin, Texas as the customers rejoice the 70th anniversary of its founding. From a little group of New York City hotel accountants to an global association representing the money and technological know-how gurus, HFTP has continued to focus on the educational progress of its associates and field reporting expectations. Be certain and go to the HFTP MemberWorld Booth #1544 in the HITEC Orlando Show Hall to learn much more about membership and the HFTP Academy.
- Hospitality Upgrade Turns 30: Hospitality Enhance Magazine turned 30 this year with a celebration at their annual Govt Vendor Summit. Rich Siegel, Geneva Rinehart, and the rest of the HU team are omni-present at HITEC just about every calendar year. The journal is often loaded with suitable article content composed by a wide variety of top rated-notch contributors. The distributors had a chance to roast Prosperous at their party — the rest of us can do our individual Wealthy-roasting at HITEC. Prevent by their booth #2111.
