HTNG issues call for entries for new TechOvation competition

Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG) introduces a new innovation competition, building on its popular Most Innovative Hospitality Technology award. Applications for this year's competition are now being accepted.

The new TechOvation Award will be more competitive, offer greater visibility, provide expanded PR opportunities and feature live audience participation at HTNG's 2015 North American Conference in February.

In a qualifying round, entrants will make a five-minute "elevator pitch" before a live audience of conference attendees and investors. A judging panel of senior hospitality IT executives will select three finalists to repeat their presentations in the general session on the next day, where the full audience will pick the winners in a real-time poll.

Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


"We are thrilled to offer a more engaging competition this year," said Douglas Rice, Executive Vice President & CEO of HTNG. "The changes we've made for TechOvation will provide attendees with an overview of the latest hospitality technology innovations, and the live voting process will add another Element of excitement."
