CHICAGO (February 19, 2012) – What do hotel technology’s leaders think was the most innovative technology to be introduced to hotels in 2011?

HTNG will announce the winners of the Most Innovative Hospitality Technology award for 2011 at its eighth North American Conference on April 4, 2012.

The judges in the competition are the people who select, buy, and deploy technologies in hotels around the world. HTNG’s hotel members, which include top technologists from all of the world’s top 10 hotel brand as well as from smaller groups and independent hotels, will review all entrants on special display boards at the conference (or online) and will vote for their choices.

This year’s winner will join last year’s champion, ICE on iPads from Intelity, and the 2009 Winner , REX Room Expeditor from MTech, in an elite group of technologies recognized by hotels as exemplifying the leading edge of innovation. Past runners up include MobileAccessVE from Corning MobileAccess; Allegro Mobile-Web-Kiosk Check-in/Out Solution from Ariane Systems, and the original ICE product from Intelity.
