Introducing Meet Ups at Annual Convention 2016

Building on the idea of bringing everyone together, HFTP is excited to introduce one of its newest additions to the Annual Convention schedule this year: meet ups. For those of you who are wondering what exactly these new “meet ups” entail, let me fill you in.

Next month on Thursday, October 20, 2016, Annual Convention attendees will have the opportunity to join one of three casual “meet ups” offered from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at various public locations at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Three meet up categories offered: 1) Chapter Leaders; 2) Young Professionals; 3) Ask Me Anything (general HFTP meet up).

Introducing HFTP meet ups – a new addition to the Annual Convention 2016 schedule.

[ M ]  –  Meet Members

  • Spend time meeting or reconnecting with other HFTP members, and industry peers, as Thursday’s sessions come to an end. Connect with attendees and staff for a chance to ask questions, get to know each other, or simply add to your LinkedIn connections.

  • HFTP unites thousands of hospitality leaders from across the globe. HFTP enables its members to participate, teach, learn and grow via its available member benefits.

  • Take charge today and transform tomorrow – invest in the future of your career and the hospitality industry at large.
