CALL FOR SPEAKERS - Nomination Guidelines
Submit by email to: John Hall, Director / Event Content --- jhall@edgellmail.com / 973-607-1331
Key Note regarding the 2011 HTF: This year’s theme is anchored by the word “VISIONARIES” – as a result key speaker nominations must be industry recognized visionaries in the topic area to be considered for "first-choice" placement as a speaker.
Speaker Requirements:
  • Nominated speakers must be senior lodging executives only. We are not seeking vendor executives as speakers. 
  • HTF 2011 is all about IT so we are seeking only the most senior lodging IT executives – CTO, CIO, SVP and VP. For this event we are not accepting executive nominations below the VP title level.
Nomination Guidelines:
  • All nominations must be submitted in writing by email to be considered.
  • You may make multiple speaker nominations.
  • If you are nominating a speaker for a specific topic please indicate the topic in your submission. Note in all instances final placement of any nominee on the 2011 HTF speaker roster is at the sole discretion of the HTF / Hospitality Technology editorial team.
