Presented by Our Title Sponsor


Hospitality on Parade is a legendary event that recognizes the best of the best in the hospitality community, from industry veterans to neophyte students. Hotel & Lodging Association of Greater Houston and the Conrad N. Hilton college have once again teamed up to bring you an evening of celebration and camaraderie. The 13th Annual Hospitality on Parade will be Friday, November 16th at The Marriott Marquis Downtown Houston. The evening will include dinner, the awards presentation, dancing, raffle drawings and a silent auction.


The celebration helps support the Association as well as scholarships for deserving students at the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. Since its inception, Hospitality on Parade has raised over $150,000 in combined scholarship funds.


We would like for you to participate in the evening by making a donation to the Silent Auction. Talk to your friends and associates in destination/resort locations. We can put together a great vacation package! If you are at a hotel with an award winning chef – what about a chef’s table – or a private dinner in someone’s home catered by the hotel? Spa packages and gift baskets are always popular!


We are seeking airline tickets as well as international hotel stays for our raffle drawings. Theater tickets, restaurant certificates and an evening with a limo would make a great silent auction package. Offshore fishing, signed sports memorabilia, sports tickets, home décor items and jewelry are also admired items. Wine, kitchen and bar items are very popular as well.


Many of you have already purchased a table or tickets for the event, and we thank you. For those of you have not, I encourage you to purchase tickets for yourself and your staff to enjoy an evening of camaraderie and recognition.


I hope we can count on your generosity to make 2018 Hospitality on Parade the best one ever. An online donation form is below. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
