Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG) launches the 2016 TechOvation Award competition. HTNG will build on last year’s successful revamp of the TechOvation Award, and five previous years as the most innovative hospitality technology award competition, to showcase the latest technology solutions and services launched for hospitality over the past year.
"The changes we made for last year’s TechOvation Award competition were well received by attendees and contestants alike, so we will continue with the format that allows vendors to present their cutting-edge technology again this year," said Michael Blake, executive vice president and CEO of HTNG. “The presentations deliver an overview of the latest innovations, and the live voting process allows HTNG members to voice their opinions and support emerging technologies that will drive better guest satisfaction.”
In the competition’s qualifying round, HTNG member and nonmember entrants will make a five-minute “elevator pitch” before a live audience of conference attendees. 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 live poll.
