Next Version of GUESTROOM 20X Debuts at HITEC 2010
GUESTROOM 20X will continue to educate during off years by presenting a portable presentation detailing the room's technologies. The portable presentation has already been shown across North America, Europe and Asia since its inception in 2006. GUESTROOM 20X’s education sessions so far in 2009 include Poland, Hong Kong, Singapore and various North American locations. HFTP's publication The Bottomline released a GUESTROOM 20X special edition in May, showcasing the latest in guestroom technology. An electronic version of the special issue is available at www.guestroom20x.org.
"Over the past three years, GUESTROOM 20X has garnered a reputation as providing the first glimpse into the possibilities of future guestroom technologies," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "Even during non-exhibiting years, the project will continue to be on the forefront of hospitality technology trends as it educates professionals in various industries around the world."
In the meantime, HITEC 2009 education sessions discuss the future of guestroom entertainment, new revenue generation in guestrooms, converting a legacy room into the guestroom of the future and more; while various HITEC 2009 exhibitors take guestroom technology to the next level. HITEC 2009 is June 22-25 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif. USA.
