Many of us grew up learning about and experiencing the four seasons of the year: spring, summer, fall and winter. I was never interested in this topic so much, but ever since I moved to Florida I often hear people around me talking about how they miss “the seasons.” But what is so special about them? I think that the progression of seasons symbolizes the circle of life for people, the change, the rejuvenation and innovation, the moving forward. Every season covers a certain period of the year and comes with specific weather, but also with things that we do during that time and like about that season. As we move through our lives, we may observe that there are other seasons in a year that may not be recognized by everybody, but are very special for us. I think that for those in the hospitality technology field HITEC may very well be the fifth season of the year.
