The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) Americas announced the recipients of the Frank W. Berkman “Best of the Best” Awards on January 23, 2024, at the HSMAI Mike Leven Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Named the Best of the Best in chapter leadership and operations, the chapter’s programs and accomplishments serve as best practices for all chapters as they continue to fuel sales, inspire marketing, and optimize revenue for HSMAI members on the local level.

This past week, HSMAI chapter leaders gathered at the Mike Leven Leadership Conference to celebrate excellence in education, communications, membership, partnership, and special events. During the program, the chapters also had the opportunity to discuss best practices and hear from expert and motivational speakers, including Peggy Hoffman, FASAE, CAE, President, Mariner Management & Marketing; Holly Zoba, CHDM, Owner, Scout Simply & Influencer Sales Training; and Lieutenant Colonel Jason O. Harris.
