Ralph Miller accepts 2015 Paragon Award

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 & Tradeshow 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.
