Next week at HITEC Orlando in youtip Booth 2007, attendees will have the  opportunity to “Catch Cash for a Cause” with all proceeds donated to the HFTP® Foundation (the philanthropic arm of Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals that helps secure nonprofit funding for hospitality and travel industry-related research, educational projects, and scholarships). As part of its 2nd Annual Digital Donation Driveyoutip will enable participants to catch as much money as they can in a Money Booth. Those participating will earn a raffle ticket for a chance to win fantastic prizes that will be announced at the show.

“HFTP is very appreciative of youtip efforts to raise money for our scholarship programs,” said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe. “Once again youtip will use their technology to help a future hospitality professional realize their dreams of entering the industry.”

3 Ways to Play

In addition to supporting this worthy cause, hoteliers joining in the 2nd Annual Digital Donation Drive will experience the simplest, fastest, and most secure digital tipping platform. To take part in the 2022 Cash Grab, HITEC attendees can receive a “Money Booth Ticket” by doing one of three things:

1.     Attend the youtip Exhibitor Tutorial 03B on Tuesday

youtip will host an Exhibitor Tutorial titled: “The Power of Tipping: Going Beyond the Money” on Tuesday, June 28 at 12:00 p.m. Stage B in the Exhibit Hall. The session will address the challenges of today’s cashless economy and explain how hoteliers can combat the labor shortage, measure satisfaction, capture feedback, improve online reviews, and set employees up for financial wellness with an end-to-end digital tipping platform. At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will receive a Money Booth Ticket.

2.     Ride the Hapi Bus and Tip the Driver via youtip

Those taking the Hapi Bus that provides complimentary service to HITEC parties and events and who tip the driver via youtip (scan-to-tip QR codes will be present on the Hapi Bus) can bring their receipts to the youtip Booth to receive a Money Booth Ticket.

  1. Register for a Money Booth Ticket by clicking here.

Once inside the Money Booth participants will have 20 seconds to catch as much cash as they can. The dollar amount caught will be uploaded to a Visa Debit Card. Participants will immediately use the youtip digital tipping screen to donate all awarded funds from the Visa Debit Card to the HFTP Foundation. NOTE: Hand sanitizer, latex gloves, and goggles will be on hand for participants’ protection.

Money Booth, Podcasters & More
“youtip Booth 2007 will be action packed this year,” said Sarah Taveprungsenukul, youtip co-founder and chief commercial officer. “Not only will people enjoy watching their peers ‘Catch Cash for a Cause’ over the course of three days, but they can see six personalities from Hospitality.FM, broadcast LIVE from our booth and discuss trending topics – including the rise of digital tipping in today’s cashless economy.

“Exciting things are happening for our industry, and we can’t wait to reveal at our Press Conference on Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. how youtip is solving the problem of cashless discretionary tipping by accelerating employees tip disbursement rather than having them wait two weeks to get their tips in their paychecks,” she said. “We will announce how youtip is teaming up with Visa Direct to change the way employees receive tips forever.”

youtip, a PhocusWire “Hot 25 Startup” for 2022 and the “Most Innovative Startup of the Year,” was founded to serve as an enterprise system for digital gratuity. The platform is designed to fit the needs of hotel brands, property management companies, and property ownership groups.
