Insights from a HITEC Orlando Guest Blogger


Penned by: Ron Strecker, CHAE+, CHTP+

Welcome to my HITEC Orlando 2022 pre-arrival web site put up. I would like to thank the team at HFTP for picking out me as one of this year’s guest bloggers. Also, be sure to verify out Jennifer Jones’ posts. She and I are both of those again for encore appearances as HITEC guest bloggers.

Starting up way back in 1997, HITEC turned the most critical once-a-year function on my do the job calendar.  It became a significantly-anticipated crack from the month-to-month grind at operate. Each individual calendar year had its possess celebratory feel as I reconnected with my escalating community of sector leaders that shared a common fascination. 

This calendar year, 2022, marks a couple additional reasons to celebrate.

  • HITEC celebrates its 50th Anniversary: HITEC has developed over the years to grow to be the single most-important event for hospitality technological know-how. In my belief, the true attraction for this party is the equilibrium that exists involving the trade display exhibits and the academic classes. I marvel how quite a few of this year’s distributors can say they have been represented in all 50 preceding HITECs.
  • Welcome back to our worldwide companions and attendees: HITEC 2021 was a welcomed option to meet again face-to-experience. HITEC 2022 will be even better as we welcome so numerous of our worldwide members, vendors and attendees that were less than journey constraints nine months in the past.
  • HFTP celebrates its 70th Anniversary this calendar year:  Mark your calendar for September 14-16 for the HFTP 2022 Annual Conference taking area in Austin, Texas as the members rejoice the 70th anniversary of its founding.  From a little team of New York Metropolis lodge accountants to an intercontinental association symbolizing the economic and technologies pros, HFTP has continued to concentrate on the instructional growth of its users and field reporting expectations. Be confident and pay a visit to the HFTP MemberWorld Booth #1544 in the HITEC Orlando Exhibit Hall to find out extra about membership and the HFTP Academy. 
  • Hospitality Update Turns 30:  Hospitality Enhance Magazine turned 30 this calendar year with a celebration at their annual Executive Vendor Summit. Rich Siegel, Geneva Rinehart, and the rest of the HU staff are omni-present at HITEC every single year. The magazine is usually crammed with suitable posts prepared by a variety of leading-notch contributors. The distributors had a likelihood to roast Wealthy at their celebration — the relaxation of us can do our personal Loaded-roasting at HITEC. Stop by their booth #2111.

As you can see, there are loads of motives to celebrate. My next site article will concentrate on three important proportions of HITEC: innovation, instruction and networking.
