Berkman Tourism Achievement Award at a gala black-tie dinner and dance.

For 2012, the HSMAI Greater New York Chapter has named seven categories for individuals to be honored for their outstanding work and dedication to the sales and marketing profession.  In addition, the Annual Tourism Achievement Award is presented each year to recognize individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the tourism industry in New York City.

Starting today, hospitality industry professionals can submit candidates for nomination to the Greater NY Chapter of HSMAI for the following categories:
  • Hotel General Manager of the Year
  • Sales & Marketing Executive of the Year
  • Sales Manager of the Year (new for 2012)
  • Revenue Management Executive of the Year
  • Revenue Manager of the Year (new for 2012)
  • Hospitality Industry Professional of the Year
  • Hospitality Student of the Year
“We have also decided to make the awards more competitive this year by changing the requirements and allowing candidates that are outside of the HSMAI membership to be eligible to be nominated, with the exception of the Hospitality Student of the Year,” said Louis Zameryka, president of the Chapter.  “I also encourage you to recognize the contributions of outstanding co-workers or colleagues by nominating qualified candidates for this year’s Awards of Excellence, as we celebrate the incredible talent in the NYC hospitality industry.”

Nominations are open now until March 2, 2012.  Anyone can nominate someone by submitting a simple form found at and click on the "Awards and Recognition" link.  For more information you can email
