What happened to our annual hospitality & travel technology events? Back in March TRAVHOTECH attended MURTEC in Las Vegas for their 25th Anniversary event. It was a great week and slightly impacted by the emerging Corona Virus at that time. I recall speaking with Ensemble IQ’s Abby Leonard and she expanded that some last minute cancellation were received.
At the time TRAVHOTECH mused as to whether this would be the last conference for industry in 2020. Then it was a good headline. Now it is the final outcome of 2020. All of the industry events associated with technology for travel and hospitality have been cancelled – at least for the in-person event.
This brought about the rise of the Digital Event and making the best of a bad situation as we do in our industry a number of events will finish out the year in a digital format;
- Hospitality Financial & Technology Professional (HFTP) Cyber HITEC
- RTN & MURTEC’s digital event – Restaurant Next
- Hospitality Technology Next Generation’s (HTNG) HTNext in association with Hospitality Technology
- American Gaming Association G2E Virtual
- The PhocusWright Conference 2020
The learning doesn’t have to stop while you are working from home!
