Aplana Software took part in HFTP’s debut in Europe at HITEC Amsterdam – the world’s largest and oldest hospitality technology exposition and conference. Aplana team members from Russia and Germany successfully presented their expertise in hospitality solutions development and participated in more than 30 meetings with partners and current clients.
Over 1,100 hospitality industry professionals from around the globe came together in Amsterdam last week to explore the industry's best practices and latest innovations at the inaugural HITEC Amsterdam. Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), producers of the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC®), exceeded its goal to successfully produce a European counterpart to its recognized, 45-year-old North American event. HITEC Amsterdam was held from March 28–30, 2017 at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.
The conference served as a regional, concentrated forum to discuss the ins-and-outs of hospitality technology via networking, education and exhibits. The event's educational program featured 30+ speakers, including two keynote presentations, which addressed trending topics such as: EU data privacy legislation, disruptive technologies, e-payments, technology for profit, IT and more.
Attendees also had access to an exhibition hall that was home to 83 exhibit booths showcasing the latest in hospitality technology products and services.
HITEC Amsterdam was the first of three HITECs that HFTP will produce this year. Next up, the larger HITEC Toronto is slated for June 26-29, 2017 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Aplana Software is planning to take part in that event too.
