The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Student Chapter

About Us

Inaugurated in May 2007, the HFTP

PolyU Student Chapter was the first

in Asia and the second outside North America,

which provides a platform for members to

build network with their peers and industry

practitioners in the hospitality finance and

technology sectors. The Chapter also helps its

members to gain a better understanding of the

accounting, financial management,

information processing and technology

management in the hospitality industry by

holding different activities such as field trips

and workshops.

HFTP Headquarters

of the Asia-Pacific Region

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has

been designated by HFTP as its

headquarters for the Asia-Pacific region.

Situated in SHTM, the new headquarters

was unveiled on 16 November, 2012 by Mr.

Frank Wolfe, Chief Executive Officer of

HFTP and Professor Kaye Chon, Dean and

Chair Professor of SHTM.

Professor Chon remarked, “Through this

platform, SHTM will further contribute its

efforts in facilitating the educational and

professional development of hospitality

practitioners and, in turn, help enhance the

professional standard for related

disciplines."
