Predict the Unexpected


HT-NEXT brings together the trailblazers and innovative thinkers of hotel technology. We're tapping experts in their fields to help hotels anticipate where technology is headed, and predict what guests will want before they even know they want it. 

With guest data as the new currency and personalization as the payoff, the stakes for surprise-and-delight in the hotel industry have been raised. Property-centric systems of the past must give way to guest-focused solutions. We'll tackle unruly privacy legislation, we'll unpack the ultimate guestroom of the future, and we'll help hotels navigate the pressures of global travel trends. Be inspired, learn how other industries are navigating disruption, and find solutions that will help you Predict the Unexpected

Hoteliers Attend HT-NEXT to Stay Ahead of the Trends...and the Competition

“HT-NEXT is my favorite US-based hospitality tech event. Its focus on innovation ensures that we always come back with great ideas for our own business and the event is intimate enough to have meaningful interaction with vendors and industry colleagues.” 
Floor Bleeker, President of HTNG, CIO Middle East & Africa and Global Accor Strategic Programs, AccorHotels
