BITAC® Global Virtual Debuts as Premier Online Networking Forum for the International Hospitality Market

Innovative interactive networking forum to virtually connect international hotel executives with leading suppliers of hospitality products and solutions.

14 January 2020

NEW YORK - BITAC, Inc., the producer of industry-leading hotel trade events that enable one-on-one networking between hotel organizations and top-tier providers, has announced a groundbreaking new event for 2020, known as BITAC Global Virtual. This unique new event will debut next month on February 10-12 as the hotel industry's first online-only networking forum, featuring live and on-demand educational sessions and pre-scheduled web conference meetings. Powered by the UgoVirtual platform, this event aggregates the power of virtual reality, web conferencing and e-learning technologies to allow international hoteliers to expand their professional network and industry resources without the time and cost of physical travel.

BITAC® events are well known in the North American hotel market for bringing highly targeted segments of lodging executives and vendors together to efficiently meet their respective educational and procurement needs. The BITAC® event model employs a unique combination of engaging panels and educational opportunities, along with pre-qualified and arranged meetings between hotel decision-makers who are sourcing specific product solutions and pre-vetted industry suppliers.

BITAC Global Virtual is the newest and most innovative addition to this lineup of industry trade events. Because the event will be hosted virtually, attendees can join from anywhere in the world, using only an internet connection. To accommodate the needs of individual regions, the three-day BITAC Global Virtual forum will be produced in a tiered time-zone structure.

The benefits of attending include eliminating time and cost barriers to reaching global hotel resources; minimizing office downtime for all stakeholders; and gaining the ability to include more team members in key purchasing decisions. There is no cost for hotel professionals to register or attend.

"Over the years, our hospitality industry executive attendees and vendors have repeatedly expressed an interest in having an international BITAC offering, due to the increasingly global nature of the industry, as well as the success of our growing portfolio of North American networking events," said Rich Viola, president/CEO of BITAC, Inc. "Now, with BITAC Global Virtual, we are delivering an innovative event that literally brings the world of hospitality together."

Free registration is available to hotel professionals here: For sponsorship or vendor participation, please call Rich Viola at +1 (212) 484-2205. For more information on BITAC Global Virtual or other BITAC events, please visit
