HITEC 2017

The world’s largest hospitality technology show moves to Canada

Historically hosted annually in a different city throughout the United States, the largest event by HFTP (Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals) this year heads for the first time to Toronto, Canada, June 26 – 29, with 6,000+ attendees, four days of education and three expo days.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, HFTP is a global non-profit hospitality association, with several thousand members and stakeholders across the globe, and this year, the organisation decided to break tradition by hosting a total of three HITEC events all taking place outside of US borders – in Toronto, Amsterdam and Dubai.

The Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC) is the world’s largest and oldest hospitality technology exposition and conference brand. HITEC offers a unique combination of top-notch education strands, and brings together the brightest minds and hottest technologies from across the globe to one place.

The unparalleled event offers attendees essential education, access to top hospitality technology industry experts and the resources to find cost- effective ways to improve company bottom lines. Combined with the intimate opportunities to connect with fellow professionals, HITEC has everything to enhance one’s career.
