Hospitality Financial & Technology Professionals (HFTP)

UNLV Student Chapter

HFTP UNLV is the student chapter of the Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals. HFTP is the international professional association serving over 4,800 members working in hospitality. Since 1952, HFTP has been dedicated to providing members with extraordinary networking opportunities, industry-leading certification programs and events, and essential resources for professional growth.

Getting Involved

The student chapter holds meetings throughout each semester. The meetings offer opportunities to meet guest speakers from the industry and collaborate with members of the Las Vegas chapter. Student members can also attend the annual convention and tradeshow which is held every September/October and the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) which is held the third week in June of each year. Active student members will have the opportunity to win merit-based scholarships via an endowment given to the Hotel College by HFTP as well as travel scholarships to attend HITEC.
