Beekeeper Wins E20X ‘People’s Choice’ at HITEC
Judged by HITEC attendees, the workplace communication app was chosen as the crowd favorite for its ability to digitize hospitality workers who don’t sit behind a traditional desk and don’t have access to work email. By connecting operational systems and communication channels within one secure, intuitive platform, Beekeeper helps hoteliers exchange information, share property updates, and communicate best practices within or across departments in 30 languages.
The E20X Houston innovation competition for hospitality featured 16 startups, an expert panel of six judges and 16 industry mentors who coached the entrepreneurs before their four-minute pitch. According to HFTP, HITEC Houston broke barriers at the George R. Brown Convention Center June 18 to 21 as the highest attended event in the association's history with more 6,650 attendees. Next year, HFTP will host HITEC Minneapolis from June 17 to 20, 2019 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
