HTNG 2015 North American Conference

The HTNG’s 2015 North American Conference for Hospitality Technology has begun. This conference helps hospitality IT executives network, educate and personal development for hospitality technologists across the globe.

This 4 day conference is split up into two day events.

“Tech Days (Monday & Tuesday) sessions are focused, technical topics intended for smaller groups.  There are concurrent sessions from which you can pick topics of greatest interest to you.  Also, as part of Tech Days activities, the Software Forum and the Infrastructure and Device Forum will each hold a forum meeting.  Participants can view presentations about the latest technologies from 2014 during a revamped technology innovation competition. 

Strategy Days (Wednesday & Thursday) will include our general session presentations which are designed for a broader hospitality audience. The conference concludes for senior level hoteliers with the Hotel IT Leaders’ Roundtable. The Roundtable allows participating hoteliers (limited to two per company) to choose their preferred topics for an open dialogue.”
