Relay will form an integral part of the HotelTech program, fetching amenities for delegates in the refreshment area and presenting gifts and drawings during the conference.

Together with the co-located Hotel Management Singapore Summit, HotelTech 2015 expects over 350 delegates from across Asia Pacific. HotelTech 2015 is a partner event of TravelRave, Asia’s most influential travel trade festival. TravelRave 2015 provides a dynamic platform for business leaders and industry professionals to convene, share knowledge and insights, network and discover new business opportunities and celebrate Asian tourism at its best.
