In April of 2016, Hospitality Technology magazine and Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG; www.htng. org) announced that they would combine HT’s Hotel Technology Forum (HTF) and HTNG North America, to create a new event called HT-NEXT. With the theme: “Be Frictionless,” the conference took place April 10-13 in Orlando, Fla. at the Rosen Shingle Creek. The event drew hotelier attendance that was a 150% increase more than each event alone!
On arrival day, hoteliers and vendor members were able to take part in HTNG workgroups, a hall-mark of HTNG North America. The HTNG workgroups bring hoteliers and vendors together to collaborate on guidelines, standards or outputs that hoteliers can put to practical use. Workgroup topics included: Pay-ments, Door Lock Security, Centralized Authentication, Scalable Cellular Technologies, and Hotel System Dashboards.
