magazine is pleased to announce that 2014 marks the 10th
anniversary of the Hotel Technology Forum (HTF).
Hospitality Technology's Hotel Technology Forum

The agenda for 2014 includes top-level hotel execs and is headlined by exhilarating keynote speaker, Scott Stratten, president of UnMarketing. Stratten will offer his high-octane pitch as to what it takes to successfully engage customers when time is of the essence, authenticity is key, and guests can call your bluff for the world to see.
