HOTEC Ops & Tech: Premier event for decision-makers


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.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

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. 

Further details:
