HTA will welcome submissions from organizations with proven experience in convention, exhibition or other major public assembly management, which includes collaborative work in sales and marketing for the meetings, convention and incentive, or MCI business.
The new contract will succeed the current agreement that ends Dec. 31.
HTA in July will award the new five-year contract that will run from Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2018.
