MURTEC 2010 Speaker Roster Packed with Technology Leadership
This year's keynote speaker is Pizza Hut's chief information officer Baron Concors, who will discuss the planning and execution behind his company's highly successful iPhone ordering app. "There are a lot of people who still think social media is a fad and they shouldn't be playing in the mobile space. I really worry for those companies," Concors tells Hospitality Technology, the leading business-to-business publication that produces MURTEC.

Hospitality Technology is well under way in registering restaurant executives to attend MURTEC, and thanks in part to its powerful speaker line-up, pre-registered attendance levels are tracking more than 50 percent higher in 2010 over the exact same period of time last year. "These stellar attendance levels mean two things for the hospitality industry," comments Hospitality Technology's editor-in-chief Abigail A. Lorden. "First, every time a new attendee registers for MURTEC, a hotel books a room night and a restaurant can expect to seat one more, and that's great news for our industry. But in addition, the industry's overwhelming response to this event is a sure indicator that food and lodging companies are ready to move forward. With MURTEC, we're thrilled to deliver a powerful educational and networking platform that helps them do just that."
