The Arizona Chapter of the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International is looking for a venue to host the 41st Anniversary Auction and Fundraiser (formerly the Chinese Auction). In 2024 we will be celebrating the “Year of the Dragon”. This award-winning event, conceived by the Arizona Chapter in 1982, is our chapter’s largest annual fundraising event. This nationally recognized event attracts hundreds of professionals from the meeting and hospitality industry throughout the state of Arizona (see a list of corporate tables purchased in 2022 and 2023 below). In addition to supporting our association’s mission, we will be raising funds and awareness of our 2024 “Charity of the Year.”
