Check Out the New HFTP Mobile App

Written by: Lillian Lack

HFTP Mobile App HomeIn 2010, HFTP launched the HITEC 2010 mobile app — which provided helpful conference details for HITEC attendees. The reviews were positive, with app users telling us how convenient it was to have all the information they needed on their mobile device.

Last year, many of our HITEC app users complained of slow loading times, so we knew it was time to find a new partner to re-develop the app.

We found that partner in Bally Technologies, a leader in developing mobile apps for the hospitality industry. Bally Technologies (formerly Macroview Labs) has built popular apps for many hotels, casinos and conferences.

Since we are a technology-based association, we also wanted to provide the same mobile service to HFTP members and attendees of HFTP events.

That’s why we came up with a separate HFTP mobile app.

This official free HFTP mobile app will make it easier for members and other hospitality professionals to get instant access to information about membership, certifications, HFTP events and other important HFTP resources.

Download the Free App

The HFTP Moblie App is available for download now. If you don’t have an iPhone, iPad or Android, the app also works as a mobile web site for all devices.

Apple Store (iPhone and iPad)

Android Devices- Google Play Store

Mobile Site – For all other devices, visit mobile.hftp.org for the mobile site.

On the app, you’ll find:

  • HFTP membership information
  • HFTP events’ schedules and details
  • CHAE and CHTP certification information
  • Social media — connect with HFTP on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
  • HFTP Connect — the Hospitality Professionals’ Blog
  • Industry news
  • Resources, publications and member benefits
  • HFTP  leadership — Board of Directors and committees
  • HFTP awards
  • And more

New HITEC App Comes Next

Now that the HFTP app has launched, HFTP is working with Bally Technologies on the new HITEC 2012 mobile app. It will be released in late May 2012.

If you experienced slow loading times with last year’s app, we hear you. Rest assured that this year’s app will be better than ever.

We Want Your Feedback: Tell Us What You Think

We have an ongoing relationship with the developer of our mobile apps, so we’ll be adding more features in the future.
