|Mission & Purpose|
Hospitality Technology Next Generation is a global not-for-profit trade association that fosters, through collaboration and partnership among hospitality professionals and technology providers, the development of next-generation solutions that will enable them to do business globally in the 21st century.
HTNG is run by and for the benefit of hospitality IT executives, with active support from technology providers and other industry participants. It is governed by a Board of Governors consisting of senior IT executives from 22 leading hospitality companies, with nonvoting participation by Executive Advisors from the hospitality, consulting, and academic community. The commitment of these industry leaders is reflected in the fact that Governors and Advisors serve without compensation and pay their own travel expenses to attend several board meetings and events around the world each year.
HTNG's activities are undertaken by hundreds of volunteers from member companies, supported by a small paid professional staff.
To ensure vendor neutrality in overall direction and policy, only full-time hospitality IT executives may serve on the Board of Governors. Other industry participants, however, have full voting rights in HTNG's day-to-day activities, and may also serve in an advisory capacity to the Board.
