HITEC season is beginning to pick up speed and HITEC Advisory Council Chair, Richard Tudgay, is excited to share what this year’s event has in store for attendees. This year’s event will take place in New Orleans, La. USA June 20-23 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Start-up pitch competition, Entrepreneur 20X (E20X), will be back following an impressively successful debut at HITEC 2015, along with exceptional educational programming, numerous networking opportunities, and a top-notch show floor filled with the industry’s best vendors.
Each year, the HITEC advisory council (HAC) works tirelessly to be sure that HITEC is delivering the greatest experience possible to attendees and exhibitors. The council is comprised of professionals from across the industry, including allied groups, to ensure a well-rounded event that is representative of the entire industry. Tudgay explains, “The planning went very well because of the different opinions and viewpoints that each council member brought.” This year, the HAC includes voices from American Hotel and Lodging Association (AH&LA), Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI), Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) and the International Hospitality Information Technology Association (iHITA). In working together, this group is able to further the industry as a whole and create an environment which fosters innovation, learning and success.
