Development of the New CHTP Certification Program Moves Full Steam Ahead

Written by: Bryan Wood

With HITEC 2014 just a few short weeks away, I thought it would be timely to go ahead and update the industry on the latest progress HFTP has made concerning the CHTP Certification Program since the CHTP Task Force meeting earlier this year.

Realizing time is a common enemy for client and vendor alike — with only three days to work with — opportunity must be sized up in the blink of an eye.

Many of the key players set up in large aesthetically inviting displays near the main entrance, while smaller entrepreneurial outfits were based further from the beaten path. There is an element of Darwinism to the individual offerings. It will be interesting to see the businesses becoming more prominent next year and others replaced by more marketable ideas. Read More »
