HFTP Introduces CYBER HITEC 2020, A Virtual Platform for the World’s Largest Hospitality Technology Event
The interactive online event will present a comprehensive education, exhibits and networking program; starting with three live days and continuing on-demand access to the event’s resources for one month.
Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) has unveiled the details for its virtual CYBER HITEC. The 47-year Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®) recently pivoted from an in-person to a virtual program, but still retains the full-breadth of features and expertise HITEC is known for. Stepping into the virtual event, a participant will encounter education planned and presented by industry insiders, virtual exhibit booths from top technology solution providers, and a variety of meet-ups and opportunities for one-on-one connections. CYBER HITEC will debut on October 27, providing three days of live programming at the beginning of its run and will remain available for on-demand access through November 25.
Registrants will have access to an education program featuring over 25 sessions, offering much-needed discussion on the unique issues the hospitality industry is currently facing. In addition to the presentation, the speakers will be available to participants for Q&A. To provide the best possible options to the industry, the HFTP Annual Convention (which was scheduled as an in-person event for October) will also be held under the CYBER HITEC banner and attendees will have the opportunity to attend education sessions for both events.
In conjunction with the education program, CYBER HITEC will feature virtual exhibit halls and exhibit booths, wherein companies can showcase their products through multi-media tools such as video, photos and more. Company representatives will also be available for one-on-one interaction.
A variety of virtual sponsorships for extended brand visibility are available through the CYBER HITEC event platform. Numerous long-time HITEC exhibitors have already shown their support for this year's virtual event, with Samsung and HospitalityNet securing Platinum sponsorships, the highest sponsor tier.
The in-person event, "Best of HFTP," which included HITEC San Antonio and the HFTP Annual Convention was scheduled for October 26-29, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas, USA. In response to the continued health safety concerns and travel restrictions related to the current pandemic, the HFTP Global Board of Directors, has determined it is best to switch gears and concentrate efforts on a virtual program
