The University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Global Hospitality Leadership, one of the world’s leaders in hospitality and tourism education, announced today that it will sponsor and exhibit at the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC) 2024, the world's largest and most influential hospitality technology event. The College will use this opportunity to launch its online Bachelor of Science in Global Hospitality Leadership and online Doctorate in Global Hospitality Leadership. These new additions align well with the existing online Executive Master of Hospitality Management.

The online BS degree serves as a gateway to leadership roles within the fast-paced hospitality industry. This degree provides a flexible and innovative educational experience designed to enhance students' leadership capabilities and elevate their perspectives to a global scale.

The online Doctorate degree in Global Hospitality Leadership is designed for working professionals and executives who want to advance their careers and contribute to the knowledge and practice of the hospitality and tourism industry. The program offers a flexible and rigorous curriculum that covers topics such as strategic management, innovation, analytics, sustainability and social responsibility. The program also provides opportunities for students to network with industry leaders, conduct applied research and participate in global learning experiences.

We are very excited to sponsor and exhibit at HITEC 2024 and to introduce our online programs, said Dr. Dennis Reynolds, Dean of the Conrad N. Hilton College of Global Hospitality Leadership. These programs are game changers for the hospitality and tourism industry, as they will prepare the next generation of leaders and scholars who can address the complex and dynamic challenges of the global marketplace. We are proud to partner with HITEC, the premier platform for showcasing the latest innovations and trends in hospitality technology.

HITEC 2024 will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, at the Charlotte Convention Center, June 24-27. The event will feature over 300 exhibitors, more than 50 educational sessions and thousands of attendees from across the globe. The Conrad N. Hilton College of Global Hospitality Leadership will have a prominent presence at the event, providing speakers, a booth at the exhibit hall and logo presence throughout the event.

We are delighted to have the Conrad N. Hilton College of Global Hospitality Leadership as a sponsor and exhibitor at HITEC 2024, said Frank Wolfe, CEO of Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP), the organization that produces HITEC.
