Five decades is a significant milestone to reach, and to commemorate this anniversary Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP), producer of the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC), will celebrate with the help of the exclusive sponsorship support of Spectrum Enterprise. 

HITEC started off as the Computer Users Conference on April 17–19, 1972 at the Statler Hilton Hotel in Dallas, Texas with only 38 attendees. Fifty years later, HITEC is expected to host 4,500+ attendees and 300+ exhibiting companies at the Orange County Convention Center. Spectrum Enterprise, an exhibitor and esteemed supporter of HITEC, will join HFTP to make this year stand out as the special event this anniversary merits. 
 
“HITEC is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and its enduring presence in the hospitality technology community is confirmation that knowledge-sharing events like this are essential,” said Frank Wolfe, CEO of HFTP. “We are tremendously excited for this momentous year and are grateful to partner with Spectrum Enterprise to create a festive experience.”   
 
The 50th Anniversary of HITEC will be celebrated throughout the event with historical displays, inspired tribute videos and commemorative branding and décor. Spectrum Enterprise will have an onsite film crew interviewing attendees about technology's impact on the hospitality industry and guest experience past, present and future.
 
“For decades, HITEC has been a key forum for stakeholders to engage in conversations and share insights about effectively leveraging technology to streamline hospitality operations and elevate the guest experience, and we believe that this dialogue is even more important today,” said Richard Twilley, Group Vice President, Vertical Markets for Spectrum Enterprise. “Many hoteliers now need to modernize their network infrastructures so that they can more easily adopt and scale new technologies into their operations at the pace needed to meet and exceed guest and employee expectations.” 
 
Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications, Inc., is a national provider of scalable, fiber technology solutions serving many of America's largest businesses and communications service providers. The broad Spectrum Enterprise portfolio includes networking and managed services solutions: Internet access, Ethernet access and networks, Voice and TV solutions. The company will be at HITEC 2022 at booth 2035 in the Exhibit Hall.
 
Long-time HITEC attendees should consider contributing to this celebration by recording their memorable HITEC moments for inclusion in the commemorative video played ahead of the HITEC Headliner Sessions. The process is simple to participate. 
 
HITEC is the world's largest hospitality technology exposition and conference. It offers a unique combination of top-notch hospitality technology education, led by industry peers and experts, and an unparalleled expo showcasing the latest hospitality technology products and services. Registration for HITEC Orlando is now open.
