LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, 3 May 2018 – Wade Co. SA, the Swiss-based publisher of The Hotel Yearbook, a family of annual compendiums of expert opinion and insights on the future of the hotel industry, announces the upcoming launch of The Hotel Yearbook 2022 – Technology in China, a new Special Edition focused exclusively on how the changing technology landscape will affect Chinese hospitality groups – and how Chinese technology providers will potentially affect the entire sector worldwide.

    “This publication is a first for us,” said Woody Wade, the founder and co-publisher of The Hotel Yearbook. “Not only are our many editorial contributors looking at the rapidly evolving tech landscape, but from the perspective of a single, huge market: China.”

    Taking on the joint role of Guest Editors-in-Chief are Frank Wolfe, CEO of Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®), and Jing Zhu, CEO of China Hospitality Technology Alliance (CHTA). As Henri Roelings, co-publisher of The Hotel Yearbook, explains, “Frank and Jing bring a wealth of experience, insider knowledge, and vital connections to their role as editors. We are extremely fortunate to be able to count on two such knowledgeable experts to provide their insights and help shape the publication, making sure its content will be as valuable and practice-oriented as possible.”

    The publication’s launch will coincide with the biggest of HFTP®’s HITECs in 2018, HITEC Houston on 18-21 June. At CHTA’s major event, “Disruptive 2018-Connecting Travelers”, held in Shenzhen in May, a launch announcement will also be made.

    “Chinese travelers have nowadays become part of the mainstream of global tourism flows,” said CHTA’s Jing Zhu. “In an endeavor of connecting East and West, CHTA is honored to work with our strategic partners, the Hotel Yearbook and HFTP®, to release this very first special edition. It will present readers with a brand new angle on China’s travel and hospitality industry and show how it is making an impact on the global travel landscape – in particular from the perspectives of technology and business innovation.”

    Frank Wolfe of HFTP® added, “Our organization actively supports collaborations among the industry’s professionals so that ideas can build and innovations can continue. It’s crucial to bring great minds together, and that is exactly what this China-focused edition of The Hotel Yearbook does. We are proud to be involved in putting it together and helping assure a wide readership.”

    The editorial concept of all of the editions within The Hotel Yearbook family is to bring together senior travel and hospitality industry executives, recognized experts and thought leaders from every part of the industry to write about trends and innovation in the global travel and hospitality business. Underscoring its focus on innovation, The Hotel Yearbook 2022 – Technology in China includes a special section featuring a number of local travel and hospitality start-ups, each making use of different tech approaches to provide creative solutions to travel and hospitality challenges.

    The Hotel Yearbook 2022 – Technology in China will appear in English and Chinese within the same publication. A digital publication, it will be distributed to the extensive networks of HFTP® and CHTA, as well as Hsyndicate.

    “Technological changes will affect almost everything in the travel and hospitality space – and very quickly,” said Woody Wade, co-publisher. “That is why this new publication will be a must read for managers around the world with aspirations to understand the opportunities that Chinese technology companies are creating for the industry, not just in China itself but increasingly beyond her borders.”
