As an educational association, HFTP's core purpose is "to lead and advance the hospitality profession by providing a forum for continuous learning and knowledge sharing."...The HFTP Connect blog furthers this purpose by collecting the latest research, expert guidance and different perspectives on hospitality and technology trends, best practices and challenges.
The transfer of knowledge among professionals in the industry is integral to its growth and evolution. For this reason, HFTP regularly invites hospitality professionals to contribute to the association's official blog.
