VENZA Celebrates its Fifteenth Anniversary at HITEC and The Hospitality Show

VENZA, the leading provider of data protection and regulatory compliance solutions for the hospitality industry, is celebrating its fifteenth anniversary at major events this summer. During HITEC (26 – 29 June) and The Hospitality Show (27 – 29 June), the company will be recognizing its accomplishments and history of strong partnerships within the hospitality industry with a series of special events.

VENZA was founded in 2008 by Jeff VENZA, Daniel Johnson, and David Christiansen. Focusing on its key area of experience and expertise—the hospitality industry—it has offered a range of security awareness, phishing, PCI DSS, privacy management, and IT security tools and services. Originally based in Roswell, GA, VENZA now maintains its corporate headquarters in Pensacola, FL and has regional offices in Atlanta, GA, San Juan, PR, and The Hague, Netherlands. It provides more than 225,000 users in over 100 countries with guidance for proactive risk management to mitigate data security vulnerabilities.

At this summer’s premier hospitality technology events, HITEC (Booth #2115) and The Hospitality Show (Booth #817), VENZA will be celebrating its anniversary with special events. On Wednesday 28 June at 1:00 PM, the VENZA booth at HITEC will be acknowledging this milestone and handing out cake to all present attendees. Over the course of both shows, VENZA will be revealing the qualifying participants and winner of its Pathfinder Pizza Party Contest, an ongoing event that offers hotel properties the chance to win a prize for increasing their security awareness training completion rate.

Continuing its established history of innovation and market leadership, VENZA will also be making several product announcements during the shows. The company encourages those in attendance to stop by the VENZA booths to be among the first to know about how cutting-edge tools can create better visibility and better defense.

“From the beginning, serving the hospitality industry has been central to VENZA,” said Daniel Johnson, Chief Executive Officer at VENZA. “What started as a small operation in the Atlanta area has now blossomed into a company with offices on two continents and clients around the world. If our history of growth is an indication, the next 15 years should be a very exciting time at VENZA.”

“As much as I have enjoyed seeing our company’s impact on hoteliers and benefit for the industry, I am equally proud of the people at VENZA who have built our culture and shaped it into the business it is today,” he added. “From the tireless efforts of Jeff and David to the countless contributions of our hundreds of staff over the years, the history of VENZA has been profoundly shaped by the people of the company. I greatly appreciate all they have done to build VENZA over the past 15 years.”
