We’re excited to announce that our sales & marketing superstars are flying off to the annual HITEC convention (that’s Hotel Industry Technology Exposition and Conference) in Houston in a couple weeks. We thought we’d take a few moments to talk about what makes this such an awesome event for us and why we think you’ll love it, too.
HITEC is a conference that is hosted annually by Hospitality Technology and Financial Professionals (HTFP®). This show – founded in 1972 – is the longest-running technology-focused conference in the hotel industry. We think it’s awesome that it remains the largest tech show in the industry and we love that we get the opportunity to attend and learn how technology is shaping the future of the hotel and lodging industry.
Why we love this show
HITEC brings industry leaders from all over the world together to talk about the future of the industry and how we can leverage technology to help improve the guest experience and operational efficiency of all kinds of lodging properties.
The speaker lineup includes keynote speakers, Mike Walsh (author: Futuretainment and The Dictionary of Dangerous Ideas) and Theresa Payton (Former White House CIO and Cybersecurity Authority), as well as leaders from both hospitality giants (IHG, Hilton, MGM, etc.) and tech companies.
Some of our favorite topics include:
- Guest WiFi
- Internet of Things
- Technology Integration
- Artificial Intelligence
HITEC also boasts an expansive hall of exhibitors with products ranging from CRM software and Guest WiFi to digital signage and electronics for both guest room and public spaces.
Will you be there?
If you’ll be at this year’s HITEC Houston show, make a point to stop by booth #1032 for a chat with the CCR team. We’d love the opportunity to discuss your how your current and future plans for technology implementation will impact your internet needs – whether you manage one hotel or hundreds.
