HOTEC Operations & Technology is fast approaching, the preeminent VIP event designed specifically for professionals in the operations and technology sectors of hospitality. The three-night event brings together pre-qualified decision-makers from hotels, cruise lines, management companies, purchasing firms and more, face-to-face with suppliers representing innovative products and services.
Suppliers represent a range of operations and technology categories, including: Linens, Food & Beverage, Cleaning & Maintenance Products, Amenities, Bath Products, Energy Management, Network & Infrastructure, Mobile & Cloud Computing and AV Equipment/Systems.
This year's event will be hosted at The Omni Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas, April 11th-14th. The event is an intimate affair, and with all delegates staying together at one venue, it provides ample networking and relationship-development opportunities.
The HOTEC format is the reason behind its success and a delegate's ROI: face-to-face interaction. The casual, intimate atmosphere affords buyers and suppliers the opportunity to learn not only about each other's business and products, but each other, on a personal level. This is how long-lasting business binds are formed, and it is at the fundamental core of HOTEC Operations & Technology.
Beyond the interaction is the fact that the event itself is not large and unruly. Since delegates are pre-qualified, the event is controlled: 40 to 45 industry-leading buyers meeting with roughly 50 key suppliers. It's where real business gets done.
As a fully-hosted buyer, you receive the following at no cost:
- Flights and transfers
- Three nights hotel accommodations
- Event program activities
- Complimentary meals and networking events
- Personalized appointment schedule
For suppliers, it's all about control and delivery. You select the buyers you wish to meet; you receive a personalized schedule of one-on-one meetings incorporating your requests and those selected by the buyers. At HOTEC, you will conduct months' worth of sales calls and meetings over 2.5 days and 3 nights. No booths, no time wasters, simply powerful one-on-one appointments and face-time with decision-makers.
The benefits are robust:
- Quality, one-on-one time with qualified buyers
- Pre-selection of buyers you want to meet
- Guaranteed limited competition
- Endless relationship-building opportunities
- Industry insights and high-caliber educational panels, including a keynote by Glenn Haussman
- Additional exposure via our media partner, Hotel Management
