EHTEC 2010 to Draw Delegates From 27 Countries

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Delegates representing at least 27 countries are expected to gather soon at the 2010 European Hospitality Technology Educational Conference (EHTEC). The conference, produced by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), offers two full days of focused technology education and various networking opportunities with peers and vendors. It is February 14-16 at the Amsterdam Hilton in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

"EHTEC is a small boutique conference designed for networking, education and the sharing of ideas," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "The fact that so many countries are represented this year is an excellent example of the need for this kind of event."

Over the past four years, the popular conference has been instrumental in bringing the latest technology information to its attendees. The EHTEC Advisory Council, a group of global hospitality experts, designed the education program to highlight tough technology issues like the recession's impact on technology, cloud computing, mobile distribution, green/sustainable technology and more. This year's conference also focuses on knowledge sharing and how to most effectively use the information gained during EHTEC 2010.
