For obvious reasons, Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) announced last week that this year's HITEC will pivot to a virtual edition called "Cyber HITEC." I guess most of you have been participating and attending in a variety of online event formats over the past 3 months... and you probably had some good, some bad, and maybe some great online experiences originating from creative minds.

So the question I would like to ask you is to share your personal best experiences so far and recommendations for team HFTP... supporting them to make CYBER HITEC a success!

I am very excited to see Cyber HITEC. For full disclosure as an HFTP board member, there was a significant amount of debate over the full effectiveness a cyber-only event could bring to the industry. We are at very different times these days and ultimately, the safety of our patrons is the top priority. However, the work ethic has dramatically changed this year as well with remote/home office and video conferencing becoming a new normal. This ability to remotely participate during and after Cyber HITEC will bring new participants and new opportunities to the industry and it is my hope and desire that Cyber HITEC remains alongside the future in-person HITECs.
