Join the Innovation Conversation

By Robert Firpo-Cappiello, Editor-in-Chief, Hospitality Technology magazine - 08/19/2020

Now is the time to innovate.

Although we don’t claim there is any upside to the pandemic — to do so would dishonor those who’ve lost their lives — we can state emphatically that there has never been a better time for all of us to listen, learn, and think differently.

For HT, that means participating in ongoing conversations about meeting current — and future — challenges. From optimizing restaurant drive-thru and curbside to managing workforce processes and wellbeing to the new science of contact tracing, we’ve packed our July/August issue with expert insight into innovative solutions. 

And there have never been more ways to join the innovation conversation going on in our HT community beyond the pages of the magazine. 

Here, a few places to get started:

MURTEC Highlight Hub is a brand-new 24/7 virtual event space offering the best of our annual multi-unit restaurant technology conference, where you can visit a Speaker Auditorium, meet vendors in the Exhibit Hall, and browse the Inspiration Library.

Workgroups hosted by our membership-supported partners at the Restaurant Technology Network ( and Hospitality Technology Next Generation ( are sharing industry challenges and driving start-today solutions.

Restaurant Next is our upcoming real-time event, taking place October 12 and 13 live on This collaboration between the Restaurant Technology Network and MURTEC will offer a unique virtual restaurant experience, must-see presentations from industry leaders, and endless opportunities for connecting with our global community.

For daily access to our latest reporting and insights, videos, and our just-launched podcast series, HT Talk, follow Hospitality Technology on LinkedIn and sign up for our free HT Alert e-newsletters.

As always, my digital door is open. Let me know what you think ([email protected]).
