Asian HFTP Conference, Singapore

11 - 12 May, 2009

HFTP PolyU members Karen Xie and Sabrina Chen were awarded student scholarship to attend the 2nd HFTP Asian Conference at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Singapore Campus in May 2009. During the two-day conference, Karen and Sabrina enjoyed the informative seminars given by various industry professionals.

Karen said that "the topics which revealed the new trends and revolutions in the hospitality and tourism industry were quite interesting, including the advanced IP telephone systems in guest rooms, the innovative strategic cost control system and evolving property management system."

Sabrina added that "we were also very happy to make friends with HFTP Asian student chapter members. In order to better serve our chapter members in the near future, we also exchanged ideas with UNLV Student Chapter members on topics like chapter activity organization, member benefit maintenance and sponsorship retention".

The two students agreed that the opportunity to attend such a professional conference was very beneficial.
