The Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®) is the world's largest and oldest hospitality technology exposition and conference brand. Produced by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), a global nonprofit hospitality association that is headquartered in Austin, Texas USA, HITEC offers a unique combination of top-notch education, and brings together the brightest minds and hottest technologies from across the globe to one place. The unparalleled event offers attendees essential education, access to top hospitality technology industry experts and the resources to find cost-effective ways to improve company bottom lines. Combined with the intimate opportunities to connect with fellow professionals, HITEC has everything to enhance your career.
Historically hosted annually in a different city throughout the United States, HFTP decided to break tradition in 2017 by hosting three HITEC events all taking place outside of U.S. borders – in Toronto, Amsterdam and Dubai. This was the first time the global association’s largest HITEC event – featuring thousands of hospitality professionals from around the world – took place outside of the U.S. In 2018, HFTP is producing HITEC Amsterdam as well as HITEC Dubai and HITEC Houston.
