Our Pictorial Review Hospitality Upgrade's Executive Vendor Summit

(L to R) Luis Segredo of MTech, Don Hay of Digital Alchemy and Brian Kretzmer of HIS join summit sponsor Frank Wolfe of HFTP for friendly cocktails even after Frank's session earlier explaining why HITEC does what it does.

(L to R) Bob Post of TravelCLICK, St. John Murphy of Acxiom and Mike Schmitt of Clairvoyix take a break from that age old New Orleans tradition of drinking, and smile for the camera.

(L to R) Gary Eng of Southern DataComm, Rick Munson of MSI and Harry Rivkin of The IDT Group cleverly hide their drinks from our camera.

Bob Post of TravelCLICK (L) and Neil Holm of hyphen prove they are best buddies even though they have only known each other 15 minutes.

(L to R) Bill Lashley of Agilysys, Ed Booth of IDeaS, Greg Pesik of Passkey and Dan Wasser of Visual One all smile for the camera except Greg - his glass must be empty.

Lucky Barry Logan (C) of Squirrel Systems gets between competitors Antonio DiMilia of StayOnline (L) and Arnon Levy of Guest-Tek. We hear Barry was afraid of what could happen if he left.

Are these three related? Does anyone else notice the similarities between (L to R) Tom Littleton of LMG Data Mining, Jim Hoen of Executive Vendor Summit sponsor TechTeam Global and Dan Hogan of Galaxy Hotel Systems? We did.

Frank Pitsikalis (R) of ResortSuite talks while Damian Mogavero of Avero thinks, "Can't he see my hands are in my pockets and I need a drink?"
