UNLV Student Chapter
HFTP is a global nonprofit hospitality association that uniquely understands the industry’s problems. We assist our members in finding solutions to industry problems more efficiently than any organization via our expert networks, research, conferences such as HITEC, and certification programs. HFTP has about 5,200 members and several thousand stakeholders across the globe. HFTP is recognized as the spokes group for the finance and technology segment of the hospitality industry.
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.
Who Should Join?
HFTP is proud to offer UNLV hospitality students a complimentary membership to the association. Student members are able to take advantage of all HFTP benefits. Students will network with leading industry professionals that help build strong business relationships even before graduation, and enter the job market with a professional network already in place.
HFTP also offers the CHAE and CHTP Certification Programs to student members as well. All UNLV students are encouraged to apply.
