Hotel Interactive, Inc. is proud to announce the debut of BITAC® Spa and Health, BITAC® Global and BITAC® F&B West.
“Our customers are asking us to take our unique BITAC meetings formula and expand it to the places where they most want to do business,” said Rich Viola, President and CEO of Hotel Interactive, Inc. “And that means moving into new segments and markets we feel can best help the BITAC family grow their businesses through our distinctive meetings experience.”
Suppliers are constantly looking for ways to foster and forge relationships to get access to companies building, renovating and repositioning hotels globally, while buyers are looking for a more efficient way to source the right products and services they need to gain the competitive edge. And they’re learning new pathways to success at BITAC®. In fact, a study by Belden Associates concluded that 93 percent of those interviewed indicated BITAC was preferred over all other events utilizing a similar format.
First up is BITAC® Spa & Health to be held August 12 -14, 2012 at the spectacular Fairmont Banff Springs in Alberta Canada. According to the International Spa Industry in its latest report, the spa business increased 4.3 percent in 2010 and is a nearly $13 billion business alone. More importantly its continuing to grow at a strong pace.
Additionally, BITAC® Spa & Health will meet the needs of the growing healthcare industry and address the growing healthcare market and the widespread development of assisted living, rehabilitation and long-term care facilities, as well as hospitals.
Next up is BITAC® Global to be held June 9 – 11, 2013 in Monaco. This event will answer the needs of suppliers and buyers needing a strong conduit into the global marketplace. As the hotel business continues to expand rapidly in many previously underdeveloped areas, this event will bring buyers and suppliers together from markets in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North Africa for a unique brand building experience.
BITAC® Global will take the renowned BITAC® formula perfected in the United States and introduce it into the global marketplace. Additionally, the event will serve as a launching pad for companies looking to relationship build with the industry’s foremost hospitality professionals from around the globe.
In September 2013 Hotel Interactive will debut BITAC® F&B West. The hospitality business has seen the demand for high quality, creative and healthy food and beverage products explode during the last 10 years. Now a strong hotel F&B program is inextricably linked to the guest experience and BITAC® F&B West will answer the needs of the market with this exciting new event taking place at Mirage from September 8-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Hotel Interactive already has experience with taking an event and splitting into two distinct conferences with incredible success. Five years ago the annual BITAC Purchasing & Design event went to an East/West format and has continued to grow with each version taking on its own style and personality. In January 2013 BITAC F&B will become BITAC®F&B East. Viola notes: “BITAC Events are at an all-time high in demand. The East/ West formula opens the door for new BITAC Family Members, without losing the ideal attendee size and format needed for building quality relationships. BITAC attendees tells us that the BITAC experience is like no other. It is no surprise that the BITAC Staff receives standing ovations Event after Event.”
The centerpiece of every BITAC event is, of course, our series the highly qualified and personalized face-to-face meetings. Held over a two-day plus period, it’s here that suppliers and buyers are set up in a matchmaking formula based on each other’s specific needs. It’s a next natural step in the evolution of business, and paramount to future success.
BITAC® events may be renowned for their highly pre-qualified face-to-face meetings, but the educational panels have become the place for high level hoteliers to have exchange ideas while examining the latest in industry trends and emerging opportunities. These highly interactive panel discussions don’t just cut through the clutter to provide actionable solutions for attendees; they create news while educating buyers and suppliers with strategies necessary to accentuate their mutually beneficial relationships.
