Dallas, TX, August 31st 2021– OpenKey, the industry standard for universal Digital Key in hotels, is thrilled to attend and participate in this year’s Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC), produced by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP). HITEC is the world’s largest and longest-running hospitality technology event. For nearly 50 years, this conference and exhibition has delivered world-class education and connection opportunities with the brightest minds and most advanced technologies in the hospitality industry.
As hospitality technology advances, contactless platforms will be front and center for hoteliers and guests, in 2021 and beyond. “OpenKey is committed to aiding hotels around the globe to deliver seamless guest experiences through innovative keyless technology,” OpenKey CEO Ron Owens said, “I am personally thrilled to attend HITEC this year and share our insights with other hospitality tech leaders. This is a monumental opportunity to connect with our customers and the hospitality industry’s most innovative players to drive even more advances in enhancing guest services and guest experiences.”
The 2021 exhibition comes at a crucial time for the hospitality industry. The world is emerging from the clutches of COVID-19, and people are travelling for business and leisure again. “In a post-pandemic world, guests are keenly aware of their health and safety, and the risks that they may be taking throughout any given trip,” Owens remarked, “More than ever before, guests expect a streamlined, convenient experience from check-in to check-out, and one that includes the latest measures to protect their health and safety.” OpenKey delivers the technology hotels need to create that experience.

Plus, tune in for a special panel, Door Locks and Contactless Platforms – Giving the Guest What They Want, featuring Ron Owens and other hospitality industry leaders. In the panel, they’ll discuss key strategies and technologies to bring more streamlined experiences to guests while enhancing hoteliers’ revenue and reputation. HITEC attendees can catch this panel live or online throughout the conference, via HITEC TV, September 28-30. It will also be accessible throughout the conference via HITEC’s daily newsletter and HITEC Bytes.
