HITEC 2016: Tips for a Successful Experience

It’s that time of year again: HITEC 2016. For those with an interest in hospitality technology trends, it’s an exciting time that promises to be very interesting judging from recent headlines.

Anyone who has previously attended HITEC knows it can be an ideal environment to see the newest hotel technology, attend presentations by key thought leaders, and meet a variety of up and comers. Here are some tips to ensure that your experience is a smooth one.

Follow Industry Announcements in Advance

During the days leading into HITEC 2016, as well as throughout the trade show itself, there is a flood of news announcements from various companies. To stay on the pulse of what’s going on, here are a few industry news sources you can check:

Walk the Entire Exhibition Hall

There are more than 300 exhibitors who participate in HITEC, from larger companies to innovative start-ups. Each of them is eager to speak to you and educate you on the current happenings in hospitality technology. Exploring the full exhibition floor will allow you to become familiar with what’s currently available, as well as get a sense of the direction that hotel technology is heading in for future investment.

Schedule Meetings

Just stopping by a booth will only provide you with a cursory introduction to the various offerings by exhibitors. If you’re looking to make a hospitality technology purchase in the future, or if you have a strong interest in a particular type of technology, it’s recommended to schedule time in advance with the vendors in these areas. You’ll get to have a more in-depth conversation focusing on your specific questions and concerns. Having a plan in advance can also help you be more efficient with your time management. See the full list of exhibitors here.

Take Time to Enjoy the Social Scene and the City

Attending HITEC can seem like a reunion, as many familiar faces within the hospitality and hotel technology industries make an appearance. It’s a great opportunity to meet and network with some of the movers and shakers, and take advantage of the exciting social events. In addition to party hopping, why not see what the beautiful and culturally rich city of New Orleans has to offer?
