HFTP partners with Fortune on high-tech hotel report

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals is working with Fortune, as its exclusive association partner, to develop the “High-Tech Hotel” section for the May 2016 issue. Fortune will publish a special section which will explore the trends, highlight industry best practices and showcase the leading solution providers in hospitality technology. As part of this collaboration, HFTP will work with the Fortune custom content team to identify the issues of top interest to the industry for coverage.

“It is refreshing that an organization like Fortune recognizes the fast-paced development within the hospitality technology sector and how this would be of broad interest to its readership of executives who are often frequent travelers,”  said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe, CAE.

The magazine’s audience is 3.4 million executives, investors and influential business travelers. The release of the May issue will lead up to HFTP’s Hospitality Technology Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC). Growing each year, HITEC is the largest event of its kind and is attended by more than 6,000 individuals and 300 exhibiting companies. This year, HITEC will be June 20–23 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
