Long lines and packed crowds gathered around Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals’ (HFTP®) GUESTROOM 2010 at the 92nd Annual International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show® (IH/M&RS).

For the second year, HFTP’s GUESTROOM 2010, a model hotel room featuring cutting-edge hotel technology, is on display in the exhibit hall. IH/M&RS continues through November 13 at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The 2007 version of GUESTROOM 2010 features nearly 50 latest and near-future technologies. The room features non-traditional types of technology such as lighting, fabrics and furniture, as well as traditional technology such as next-generation televisions, phones and robots. It also includes a wide selection of green technologies.

“GUESTROOM 2010 has become a trusted source for hospitality technology,” said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. “With many hotels implementing green practices, GUESTROOM 2010 is showcasing numerous green technologies that can be easily implemented and save hotels money, while helping the environment.”

Environmentally friendly products featured in GUESTROOM 2010, further enhancing the green emphasis of the 2007 IH/M&RS, include an energy-efficient mat that supplies power for electronic devices, a personal care dispenser system that provides less waste for landfills, eco-friendly carpet composed of high-renewable corn-based polymer, a water fixture that offers a full-power spray while using 70 percent less water and more.

The technologies were discovered following a worldwide, comprehensive search of existing, cutting-edge and future guestroom innovations. The 2007 version of GUESTROOM 2010 debuted in June at HITEC 2007 in Orlando, Fla.
