Designing Experience With the User in Mind

Lyle Worthington, CHTP, the global vice president of HFTP, delivered a keynote address at the international Hospitality Information Technology Association (iHITA) 23rd annual research conference on June 19, 2016. iHITA is an academic association that aims to bridge the gap between the industry and academia, as well as to advance hospitality technology research and education. iHITA annual research conference is co-located with HITEC. The annual conference brings together professors, industry professionals and students to discuss the latest developments in hospitality technology research.

Worthington’s keynote address “Solve for U(x). The Need for User Experience Research” introduced the area of user experience research to the academic audience and initiated a dialog about the research topics that are relevant to the industry. As researchers, we often ask ourselves if we are asking the right questions, if we are studying the topics of relevance that are new to everybody and relevant to the industry. Therefore, Worthington’s address was the session everyone at the conference was looking forward to.

It Is A Wrap

I was asked at lunch today by an industry colleague and friend what I saw at HITEC that stood out. It is a pretty common question, I think, and one that is a great way to reflect on the week that was HITEC. If you saw my first blog this year, I am book-ending my final blog with the same theme – I hope you catch it!

Time in a Bottle – In the immortal words of Jim Croce, “there never seems to be enough time.” The show floor this year was huge. I saw so much, but when I looked at my pre-show list of the vendors I wanted to meet, I plain just ran out of time. I think the show floor size speaks volumes to how much vendors are willing to invest in our industry and their view of the economic outlook.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes – OK, I am co-opting a little David Bowie here, but sometimes it is easy to miss the change that happens right in front of you. Three particular items this year really jumped out at me that may not have if I had not missed last year.
