Hotel Technology Next Generation is a global trade association that fosters, through collaboration and partnership among hoteliers 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 hotel 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 more than a dozen leading hotel companies, with nonvoting participation by Executive Advisors from the hotel, consulting, and academic community.
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 hotel IT executives may serve on the Board of Directors. 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. HTNG started as a solution to issues identified in a white paper written in 2002 by the founding members. You can still access that original white paper.
