HFTP® was excited to recently film the association’s new membership video. Watch the full “My HFTP” video on HFTP’s YouTube channel, and hear from a group of HFTP members on how they have benefited from their membership. Hearing our members’ stories on why they joined HFTP, what they have learned and connections they have made reminded us how lucky we are to be in this unique industry. We hope when you hear from your fellow members in the video, it will resonate why this is Your HFTP, a community of sharing, collaboration and support of hospitality professionals.
Find out what people have to say about HFTP as a whole. Below are quotes, pulled directly from the “My HFTP” membership video, from current and former HFTP Global Board directors as well as members, industry leaders and association influencers revealing what they have drawn from their experience as HFTP members.
Favorite part of HFTP membership quotes from “My HFTP” Video Footage:
• Neil Foster – “Having my finger on the pulse of what’s really going on in the industry – HFTP has several of the key decision makers in technology and finance right there.”
• Ted Horner – “Trading stories and comparing notes about things that are happening in the marketplace. Networking on a global scale – that is one of the great benefits of being a member of HFTP. The educational aspect, the knowledge transfer that happens. The willingness to share and cooperate is one of the great benefits of being part of the HFTP family.”
• Sherry Marek – “Getting to know people both locally from a chapter level and globally at conferences – you get to talk to people, share stories and learn from them — it’s the people and the whole learning process.”
• Prakash Shukla – “It’s the networking. The industry is fairly fragmented and siloed in many respects, and one doesn’t often get an opportunity to meet other professionals from the industry. HITEC®, for example, is a tremendously useful venue, and people come from all over the world to meet and greet each other and bounce off ideas and so forth.”
