Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) is gearing up for its 2007 Annual Convention & Tradeshow.

The convention, celebrating its 55th year, includes top-notch education sessions, numerous networking opportunities and the annual business meeting for HFTP. It will be held October 17-20 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, Fla. Registration is available on HFTP’s web site.

“The education advisory council has dedicated a lot of their time the past year to provide an educational and worthwhile Annual Convention & Tradeshow for attendees,” said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. “Their hard work is already showing with the record-breaking attendee numbers expected this year.”

HFTP recently added more rooms to the room block at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, making it the largest room block ever for an HFTP Annual Convention & Tradeshow. HFTP has secured a discounted rate at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront for attendees of the convention. To take advantage of the special rates, you must make your hotel reservations before October 1.

The convention will include education sessions from experts representing all segments of the hospitality industry. Sessions will cover topics such as the immigration debate and its impact on the club industry, strategic management processes, technology “mythbusters,” disaster planning and recovery, condo hotel accounting, I.D. theft, network security and more.

The Annual Convention & Tradeshow will also include plenty of opportunities for attendees to network with colleagues and friends. The Welcome Reception on Wednesday night will allow attendees their first visit at the exhibit hall as they network with vendors and peers. The HFTP Casino Night on Thursday night provides the chance for attendees to play Texas Hold’em, Roulette, Craps and Black Jack, while helping HFTP Scholarship and Educational Endowment programs around the world. Friday night’s President’s Evening is a black-tie optional event that includes an elegant dinner and dancing.

The annual business meeting and luncheon will be Friday, October 19 at 11:45 a.m. The meeting will give special recognition to the outgoing international board of directors and will review what HFTP has accomplished over the past year.
