Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals, producers of Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference, is pleased to announce the selected hospitality technology startups, expert judges and industry mentors that will participate in Entrepreneur 20X (E20X) at HITEC Europe.

The E20X start-up pitch competition is on April 9 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Palau de Congressos in Palma, Mallorca, Spain; all registered HITEC Europe delegates are welcome to attend. The competition is a pre-conference event attached to HITEC Europe, part of the largest hospitality technology exposition and conference brand: HITEC.
 
E20X innovators will pitch their business concepts to a room of HITEC Europe delegates and a panel of judges. At the conclusion of the competition, the E20X judges will determine the winner of the “E20X Judges’ Choice Award” grand prize of €2,500. The second prize is the “People’s Choice Award,” which is determined by popular vote through the event mobile app, concluding on the last day of HITEC Europe on April 11. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the technologies by visiting with the participating startups in the E20X Innovation Lab located on the Mezzanine level in the HITEC Europe exhibit hall.
 
The morning of the competition, E20X mentors will meet face-to-face with the entrepreneur competitors. The mentor session before the competition gives the mentors the chance to share their experience, answer questions and make invaluable connections with the E20X participants.
