HFTP members talk about what makes HFTP special
Why do we join an association? We look for an association of people who know what we are going through. Peers who are juggling the same priorities and challenges. But more importantly, they are sharing solutions.
HFTP is more than a global group of hospitality finance and technology professionals. It is a community of sharing, collaboration and support.
