HFTP Announces Re-branded Annual Convention Formal Event, HFTP’s Annual Tribute to Success
August 29, 2017 8:46am
The Friday night event, formerly known as “President’s Evening,” will recognize outstanding achievements by HFTP members
Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) is making some key updates to its Friday evening event at its upcoming Annual Convention, an event the association has produced since 1952. The event, which offers essential educational and networking opportunities for hospitality finance and technology professionals, will feature a reformatted formal dinner program. Now called "HFTP's Annual Tribute to Success," the celebration will focus on recognizing the association and its outstanding members beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017.
Each year, HFTP awards industry-leading professionals in several categories – these recipients are selected by a council of colleagues and peers. HFTP's Annual Convention represents a time for the organization to recognize outstanding achievement from individuals and HFTP chapters that embody the success of the association.
"The members, volunteers and community who make up this association are remarkable," said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe. "The formal HFTP Annual Tribute to Success evening will serve as an opportunity to honor HFTP's 65-year accomplishments and show gratitude, recognition, respect and admiration those who dedicate their time and vision to enable future success for the organization."
HFTP's Annual Tribute to Success, formerly known as "President's Evening," will still feature the installation of HFTP's 2017-2018 Global Board, and a fundraiser to support the local Orlando, Florida USA community. This year's HFTP Helps silent auction fundraiser, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Friday evening, will directly benefit Camp Boggy Creek – a safe, medically-sound children's camp environment that HFTP's Mid-Florida Chapter has supported for the last 15 years. Donations for the auction are being accepted now via the HFTP website, and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the charity.
This year's HFTP Annual Convention is scheduled for October 25–27, 2017 at Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in ChampionsGate, Florida USA. Online registration is open for Annual Convention 2017.
