AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - June 18, 2010) -  A new iPhone® mobile application, or "app," is now available for a free download in advance of the 2010 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC). Featuring the conference schedule, exhibitor information, maps and more, the app offers customized conference content for attendees.

HITEC starts next week, June 21 - 24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

"HITEC attendees are users of cutting-edge technology, and see their smart devices as important accessories," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP.
