The Planning Committee

A team of over twenty event planners are fully engaged with the planning, organizing, and execution of the 22nd staging of THE Hospitality GALA. The team is comprised of hotel leaders and HRMT faculty advisors and students. Although team members have more focused responsibilities in either marketing or operations, there is collaboration on the creation of silent and live auction packages. Team members work to secure enviable travel and leisure package donations that are of exceptional value to our guests by engaging and interacting with sponsors/donors.
