HFTP Paragon Award
In 1999, HFTP established the annual, prestigious Paragon Award to recognize individuals who have made a significant and lasting contribution to both HFTP and the hospitality industry.
Paragon Award nominees can be HFTP members; representatives of industry-related associations, societies, or trade publications; or leaders from hospitality businesses, educational institutions, and other related disciplines. A panel of industry experts selects the award winner who will be recognized at HFTP's Annual Convention in October.
The nomination and selection process begins in the summer of each year. For more information on the Paragon Award, contact Eliza Selig at +1 (512) 249-5333 or (800) 646-4387.
