Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG), which was founded at the HITEC conference five years ago this month, today announced its plans to showcase, at this year’s HITEC conference in Orlando June 25-28, its progress across the entire spectrum of technologies used by hotels.

HTNG was founded in 2002 to bring hoteliers and technology vendors together to challenges that were too great for any one company to effectively address. Today, HTNG boasts nearly 400 member companies and 1,400 engaged hotel technologists. Of these 400 companies, more than 120, of every size and from every segment of the industry, are active participants in HTNG’s focused workgroups.

At HITEC this year, the HTNG exhibit will provide opportunities for hoteliers and technology vendors alike to meet with the key buyers who oversee HTNG’s mission, including CIOs and CTOs of major hotel companies. HTNG will also host informal sessions with active participants from each of its five workgroups, where hoteliers and technology providers alike can stop by to learn more from the volunteers who are driving HTNG’s efforts.  A complete schedule of events will be distributed prior to HITEC, and will also be displayed prominently in HTNG’s booth #373.

“The activity levels in our workgroups over the past year has been enormous,” says Douglas Rice, Executive Vice President and CEO of HTNG. “With nearly twenty different workgroups and focused subteams meeting regularly, many industry participants – even a lot of our active members – are not aware of the full breadth of HTNG’s activities or accomplishments.  At HITEC this year, our presence will enable attendees to gain a high-level overview, and will also provide opportunities for detailed discussions with many of the key individuals from the hotel and vendor community who have volunteered their time and skills to help move our industry forward through HTNG.”
 
HTNG is designed to benefit every buyer and every seller of hospitality technology.  The organization’s “rules of fair play” ensure that large and small companies alike can participate and benefit on an equal footing based only on effort, commitment, and results.  Hoteliers and vendors alike are invited to visit HTNG at HITEC booth #373 to meet key hotel technology executives or to find out more about HTNG’s workgroup activities. Refreshments will be available each morning, and an end-of-show cocktail reception will start at noon on Thursday.
