Hospitality Technology (HT) and Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) are collaborating for the fifth year in a row to host HT-NEXT 2021, a unique conference for the hospitality technology industry. The event will take place Dec. 13-16 at the Fairmont Princess Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is assembling an educational agenda tied to the theme “Navigating Together.”


Whether it’s a family reunion, a corporate retreat, an industry event, or a political rally, hotels
have always been where people come together. And after more than a year of being forced apart, hotels have now become a symbol of freedom and venue to return to normalcy. But what is “normal” in a post-pandemic world when it comes to hotel operations? Join us at HT-NEXT 2021 to figure that out.


“The lodging industry is indeed navigating uncharted territory as we seek new ways to deliver
on our core mission: Meeting and exceeding evolving guest expectations,” says Robert
Firpo-Cappiello, Hospitality Technology’s editor-in-chief. “We firmly believe that the right tech solutions actually enhance the human touch that defines hospitality.”


At HT-NEXT, industry leaders who were successful in navigating the return of business in
2020 and 2021 will come together to share their IT experiences. After hearing what they have to say, we invite you to be a part of rebuilding the hospitality industry by sharing your own experiences of what worked, and what didn’t, during our interactive networking sessions.


Together, we will chart a new path to success and address topics such as hybrid meetings,
workforce management, sustainability technologies, cybersecurity, attribute-based selling,
hotel networks, cryptocurrency, and more. The HT-NEXT Awards program will also feature the Hotel Visionary Awards and HTNG’s TechOvation Award live during the event.
