Hospitality's Young Professionals & Entrepreneurs
HYPE is HLTA's newest committee, committed to enhance the professional and personal development of young professionals in the hospitality industry, bridge the gap between seasoned visitor industry leaders and the succeeding generation, and engage future leaders of hospitality with their community and industry colleagues. The organization accomplishes its mission through educational programming, community service, and networking opportunities.
HYPE membership is open and free to anyone under age 40 who is employed by an HLTA member, regardless of his or her position in the company. Others may sign up for a free newsletter and attend events at an additional cost. All young professionals – not just those who work directly with the hotel industry – are encouraged to join.
