AUSTIN — Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) is set to launch a search engine for the hospitality industry at the 2015 HFTP Annual Convention & Tradeshow, held Oct. 21 to 24 in Bellevue, Wash.
The new site, pineapplesearch.com, will feature material specific to the hospitality industry such as white papers, articles and journals. “HFTP, in conjunction with HSyndicate, is extremely excited for the launch of pineapplesearch.com,” said Frank Wolfe, CEO of HFTP. “Searchers will not have to wade through hundreds of results on unrelated topics to find information they are looking for. The engine will truly be a game changer for the industry.”
Pineapplesearch.com was demoed earlier this year to focus groups during HFTP’s Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC) in June, receiving positive feedback. Suggestions to improve the search engine were taken into account in the final development stage.
The site will be available for use by the public immediately following HFTP’s 2015 Annual Convention & Tradeshow.
