HFTP and the Caribbean Hotel Association to Host Caribbean Finance Technology Professionals Conference
HFTP and the Caribbean Hotel Association to Host Caribbean Finance Technology Professionals Conference

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/24/06 -- Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) and the Caribbean Hotel Association (CHA) are teaming up to host the first-ever Caribbean Finance and Technology Professionals Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This conference is planned for December 11-12, 2006 at the Westin Rio Mar Beach Golf Resort & Spa. The educational conference will focus on current topics of interest in the finance and technology fields.

"HFTP has had roots in the Caribbean since its early days," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, HFTP executive vice president and CEO. "As the association branches out its education programs internationally, it made sense to join with an exceptional organization like CHA to produce this conference in a region where HFTP is well-respected."

"This targeted educational program will allow finance and technology professionals in the Caribbean hotel and tourism sector to focus on more comprehensive professional development that is specific to their field of expertise," said Alec Sanguinetti, director general and CEO, CHA. "Further, it offers those with an interest in these disciplines to expand their professional horizons."

HFTP will use its resources, along with advisement from CHA, to design an agenda that aligns with the interests of Caribbean hospitality industry professionals. Just recently, the organizations sent out an extensive survey to industry professionals to help the planning committees develop the program. The conference will also feature tabletop exhibits and opportunities to network.

Also new for HFTP this year is the European Hospitality Technology Educational Conference (powered by HFTP-HITEC), which is slated for mid-February 2007 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Caribbean Hotel Association

CHA was founded in 1962, and is the voice of the Caribbean hospitality industry for the development of the region in the highly competitive and sophisticated environment of international tourism. Today, tourism is widely recognized as a pivotal industry in the economy of the region. CHA represents all facets of the hospitality industry with more than 1000 member hotels and 750 allied members.

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals

Based in Austin, Texas, HFTP is the professional association for financial and technology personnel working in hotels, resorts, clubs, casinos, restaurants, and other hospitality-related businesses. The association provides continuing education and networking opportunities to more than 4,500 members around the world, and produces the premiere hospitality technology show, HITEC.
