With the 50th anniversary of HITEC all-around the corner, I sense like there is an electricity unlike any other calendar year. Certainly, Orlando can be drippy warm. It can also convey photographs of little ones shrieking by means of the airport with Mickey Mouse ears. But this year, we are coming on solid with the HITEC Orlando Opening Occasion Offered by VENZA and CyberTek at SeaWorld Orlando with complimentary obtain to the park. This will involve a dolphin show, entire park obtain, fireworks and the exceptional 50th Anniversary HITEC Block Get together. We have had tremendous support of sponsors about the a long time to offer us obtain to terrific entertainment possibilities, but this 1 feels exclusive.

New sellers are filling the exhibit hall aisles and there are tons of new solutions for just about anything at all you are looking to boost your current tech stack.
I am not confident how many HITEC gatherings I have really been to via my 25 yrs in the hospitality industry… most likely 10?

In Austin, I obtained to maintain an armadillo! In Toronto, I got to pose with the Stanley Cup! A person 12 months I gained Longest Drive! But of program, a person of my ideal reminiscences of HITEC is seeing HFTP’s E20X competition.
