Each and every year, Hitec is a real exciting pleasure to attend. Only the first day is slowly coming to an end and it already would have been worth the whole trip. The keynote this morning by Rachel Botsman about the collaborative economy was really thought provoking and very well attended. And there for sure is no place and no occassion where you can catch up with so many friends, customers and partners from all over the world in one single day!
But on top of it for at-visions as a company is what is going on at the show floor. Being able to demoing and discussing our approach for Hotel TV, Digital Signage, Mobile Apps and how to integrate guest devices with so many truly interested parties, from the big chains to exceptional individual properties, from casino resorts to boutique hotels, from all over the US to small Islands in the Maldives is really more than worth every effort. Even more so because the feedback we get is overwhelmingly positive.
And having more and more happy customers bringing along their peers to our booth to introduce to them what we do and have already accomplished at their properties is really the best acknowledgement one can get. Thanks a lot to all of you!
Last but not least, the location is great too. The hosting citys all have their pros, and so clearly has LA – the Convention Center right next the famous Staples Center, home of this years Stanley Cup winner LA Kings and of course the Lakers, Santa Monica Pier, Malibu, Hollywood, Downtown with its spectacular Disneyhall and all of this topped with Californian sunshine – not having a good time under this circumstances is really impossible.
