Let’s honor our STARS!
The Stars of the Industry Awards Gala honors employees and managers in the hospitality industry that go above and beyond their job descriptions to make their coworkers and customers feel privileged to know them. Some of them are on the front line, and some are behind the scenes, but they all help to make the industry in Arkansas the best in the nation. They are why the hospitality industry is the second largest industry in the state that provides over 100,000 jobs and brings over $5.6 billion to the state. Also honored at the Stars of the Industry are region of the year, hotelier of the year, restaurateur of the year and travel person of the year. A scholarship is also awarded to a hospitality student.
