Whether new to the club technology industry or a veteran, club technology professionals will not want to be MIA for Club Technology Boot Camp, a special education seminar at the 2007 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®).

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) is currently enlisting club technology professionals for the session, Monday, June 25 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

“This is a great opportunity for newcomers to learn about the technology used in the club industry, and for veterans to get an update on industry trends,” said Bill Sullivan, managing director of the Courtyard Newark-University of Delaware, and speaker at Club Technology Boot Camp.

Club Technology Boot Camp will provide useful information specific to club technology and the opportunity for attendees to interact with other club technology professionals. Sullivan and Debra Kristopson, president of New Directions Technology Corp., will lead attendees through an interactive session on club technology, discuss current trends and answer any questions. Topics include: Club systems such as membership, POS, event planning, golf systems and ground maintenance; Web sites for clubs; networking; Wi-Fi; and other leading-edge technology issues.

Participation in the Club Technology Boot Camp is limited to non-vendor club professionals with an interest in or job responsibilities that are technology related. HFTP will verify the eligibility of each attendee.
The Club Technology Boot Camp is a separate fee from HITEC, but includes an exhibits only pass for Tuesday through Thursday. 

Other club technology opportunities at HITEC 2007 include the new Club Technology Pavilion and the Club and Hotel Controllers Conference. The Club Technology Pavilion, a special kiosk display area at the exhibit hall, will feature hands-on demonstrations of club technology products. The Club and Hotel Controllers Conference, June 26 – 27, will feature general information sessions, as well as four club-specific sessions focusing on financial trends, identity theft, fraud and being a business partner.   

Club Technology Boot Camp is sponsored by the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA).
