Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) and Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) have decided to launch HITEC Asia this December in Macau.
HITEC Asia joins other HITEC conferences in Europe and the US, a series of events that bring hospitality professionals together for education, networking, best practices, innovation and exclusive marketplaces.
“The HITEC brand of conferences is celebrating its 48th year and has become known as the place to learn about and purchase hospitality technology around the globe,â€ť said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe.
“After years of requests from stakeholders to bring the HITEC brand to Asia, HFTP is excited to announce this event and also very pleased to have HTNG as co-producers for this new venture.”
HITEC Asia is expected to attract over 300 hoteliers and feature some of the best technology suppliers in the region. It will also conduct educational seminars presented by global experts and leading-edge innovation pitches from regional start ups.
“HTNG has been successful in the region for over a decade solving industry standards problems and developing best practices,” said HTNG CEO Mike Blake.
“Due to the strength of HFTP’s HITEC brand and HTNG’s success and network in the region, we mutually decided that our nonprofit organizations could make a much larger impact by teaming up for a stellar conference and exhibition,” Blake added.
