HFTP accepting proposals for 2024 HITEC North America education program

New for 2024, Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals is inviting hospitality technology professionals to share their expertise and submit a presentation proposal as part of the program development process for next year's HITEC. The proposal submission period will run through Jan. 10. HITEC 2024 is scheduled for June 24-27 in Charlotte, N.C.

HITEC 2023 educational offerings included environment, social and governance strategies; technology's role in diversity, equity and inclusion; the rise of AI-powered language generation; employee recruitment/retention strategies; and data science and revenue management.

For HITEC 2024, the HITEC Advisory Council is incorporating a new hybrid approach to its program planning. Seeking presentation proposals for consideration ensures that attending professionals will have access to industry guidance that they themselves are most interested in hearing.

“The HITEC community reaches far and wide throughout the global hospitality industry, advantageously giving us access to the most innovative industry practices,” 2023 HITEC Advisory Council Co-Chair Shannon McCallum said in a statement. “By opening up the program planning with the call for presentation proposals, we extend our range of expertise and ensure we capture the latest and most interesting technology developments for the 2024 program.”

Proposals should be industry-specific and unique to HITEC, crafted for seasoned hospitality professionals. Conference attendees are interested in hearing about best practices, lessons learned and receiving tangible takeaways they can implement on the job immediately.

Topics for primary consideration in 2024 may include (but are not limited to) artificial intelligence, sustainability and renewable resources, best practices regarding ethics, operational/back-office solutions, personal development and others.
