HFTP International Hospitality Technology Hall of Fame
Innovative developments and applications in technology have propelled the hospitality industry forward, enhancing guest services and improving management tools. These developments were the result of hard work and creative thinking by a few people who had the vision to see what technology could mean to the future of the hospitality industry. These pioneers knew that new tools could be developed that would change forever the way their industry responded to challenges.
In recognition of these visionaries and their impact on the hospitality industry, HFTP established the International Hospitality Technology Hall of Fame in 1989.
The International Hospitality Technology Hall of Fame is HFTP’s highest level of recognition in the area of technology. Since 1989, 45 individuals have received this award as a reflection of their contributions to the hospitality industry. Hall of Fame members have been selected by their peers as representing the best in innovation and application and as leaders in their profession.
To accommodate the Fall date for HITEC Dallas 2021, the selection process has been moved to late summer.
Nomination Deadline: July 19, 2021
Support Material Deadline: Aug 2, 2021
In addition to completing the nomination form, each nomination must be accompanied by nomination support material.
