Sertifi Goes International for HTNG’s European Conference
Next Stop, Lisbon!
It’s no secret that Sertifi has been on the move this year. From enjoying the sunshine in San Juan with IHG, to running around Bourbon Street in New Orleans with Interstate, and everywhere in between – the Sertifi team has been all over the United States (and its territories) engaging with the hospitality industry and all the wonderful, friendly people who make it so exciting!
For the first time, though, Sertifi is thrilled to announce that we’ll be taking ourselves global and attending our first-ever international hospitality conference, HTNG’s European Conference in Lisbon.
Sertifi has been a leader in the hospitality tech space for years now, enabling Frictionless Business as well as enhanced security and PCI compliance for hospitality organizations from coast to coast, within and outside of the US. Recently, to solidify our position as a leader in in the space, Sertifi became a Corporate Industry Partner of Hospitality Technology Next Generation. Alongside our beloved partners and other industry- leading vendors like Amadeus, Cendyn, and VENZA, Sertifi will be further immersing ourselves in the hospitality tech space to continue collaborating on the future of hospitality technology.
Sertifi’s Co-Founder, John Stojka, and Director of Marketing, Jessica Hughey, will be traveling to Lisbon, Portugal October 22 – 24 to participate in the must-attend event. While their stay the Penha Longa Resort will be fantastic, it’s not the wonderful hotel and beautiful Lisbon that Jessica and John are looking most forward to.
“As Sertifi focuses its attention abroad, we’re honored to be a sponsor of HTNG’s 2018 European Conference being held at the historic Penha Longa!” says Jessica. “I’m looking forward to connecting with local hoteliers, industry experts, and other HTNG members to discuss security, PCI compliance, and enhancing guest experiences through technology as well as attending the Building a Travel and Tourism International Hub for Innovation session by Luis Araujo, Portuguese National Tourism Authority, to discover what Portugal has planned in the upcoming years.”
John says, “I’m looking forward to learning more about the technology hurdles facing the hospitality industry like the GDPR, for example. I also love any opportunity to learn from Sertifi customers, so it’ll be great to hear Mark Read from Firmdale hotels speak to the subject!”
In addition to sharing ideas and learning more about industry trends from key influencers, Sertifi will be hosting our first partner event with VENZA. Teaming up with Daniel Johnson and Wieste Bijzeit, we’ll be treating some common connections to a delicious tapas tasting (accompanied by wine, of course).
