Membership FAQs

Anyone involved the hospitality industry. That includes sales, marketing and revenue management professionals in resorts, hotels or any company that markets its products and/or services to the hospitality industry. HSMAI is also the only professional association for the revenue management profession.


You can be a current employee of a hotel, event venue, a destination marketing organization or any hotel supplier or partner to be a member.  Anyone hospitality related is welcome!

You can commit as much time as you want- or see the value in.  For example, some members only attend our education events, some love to network, some join our board and committees.  The level of involvement you take is up to you!

MPI/HSMAI Dual Membership

$700 per year – a savings of over $220 to belong to both. This membership is NOT transferrable if a member leaves their place of employment.

Yes. HSMAI started offering an Organizational Membership two years ago. This was designed for companies (hotel brands, ownership groups, hotel management companies and partner companies) who have ten or more associates in the corporate office who wish to engage in HSMAI at programs curated for corporate professionals. Member dues vary with the number of participants.

Members who change positions within the industry carry their memberships with them for the remainder of that dues year. The former employer may replace the member with another eligible individual for the remainder of the dues year at no additional cost. This does not apply to the MPI/HSMAI Dual membership which stays with the original member.


No. There are, however, additional participation fees should you decide to attend any chapter meetings and events, educational seminars, trade shows, or other local, national, or international events.
