Bangkok (Thailand) – September 23, 2019 (travelindex.com) – Two leading associations who work to advance and educate on hospitality technology are partnering to expand to Asia the popular Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®), with plans to premiere next year. Recently joining resources for HITEC Europe 2020, Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) and Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) are continuing their collaboration by adding a fourth HITEC to the 2020 roster.
HFTP has produced HITEC in North America since 1972, and in 2017 expanded the brand with two additional boutique events in Europe and Dubai which bring together thought leaders, practitioners, and vendors to cover hospitality technology trends and practices. Since then, the European show has been building annually and earlier this month HFTP and HTNG announced a new partnership to help elevate the program and broaden its audience for 2020. Taking advantage of the momentum from their collaboration and HTNG’s decade-long presence in the Asia-Pacific region, HFTP and HTNG will continue to work together to establish this new event in Asia. Details will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
Upcoming events include: HFTP’s HITEC Dubai on November 12-13, 2019 at Festival Arena in Festival City Dubai in Dubai, UAE; HTNG’s European Conference on November 18-20, 2019 at the Fairmont Monte Carlo in Monaco; HTNG’s Hospitality Tech Summit on February 13, 2020 at the Okura Hotel in Amsterdam; HFTP and HTNG’s HITEC Europe on April 21-23, 2020 at the Palau de Congressos in Palma, Mallorca, Spain; and HFTP’s HITEC San Antonio on June 15-17, 2020 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas USA.
