Hospitality Financial Technology Professionals announced Thursday it would be co-locating four events in San Antonio this October.

HFTP previously revealed on March 18 it was postponing this year’s North American Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference. Originally scheduled to take place June 15-18, the organization postponed the event to Oct. 26-29, keeping it at its original venue, the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. The event will continue to offer the same opportunities it usually does with a four-day education program planned and an exhibit hall hosting more than 300 companies.

Since moving HITEC to October, HFTP has relocated its annual convention, originally scheduled for that month, from Minneapolis to San Antonio. It will run from Oct. 27-29. The event features educational sessions focusing on industry finance and technology topics and honors HFTP members and the association’s accomplishments.
