International Hotel Technology Forum

IHTF would like to thank everyone who joined us in Barcelona on the 1st-3rd April for the 11th Annual International Hotel Technology Forum. The event saw over 600 business meetings take place across 2 days and countless partnerships formed. With over 50 speakers delivering cutting edge insight and an extensive programme of networking activities, 2014 was the biggest and best IHTF to date and we intend to make 2015 even better.

Plans are well underway for IHTF 2015, if you are a hotelier or supplier to the hospitality industry we want to hear from you. Do you have a solution you’d like to demonstrate to our senior c-level delegation? Or, are you a hotelier with a case study to share? Contact us at –
