HSMAI Member Benefits
Members are exposed to a wide variety of tools that pertain to not only our specific industry, but to related fields as well. This enables us to keep up-to-date with our customers and our competitors too.
Members are exposed to learning experiences through local chapter meetings and seminars while gaining access to specific industry news; sales and marketing trends; industry research; resource databases; job postings; and publications that give new and cutting edge insight into how to better our businesses.
The perks don’t stop there. One of the most valuable resources available to members is Econnect, an online tool that breaks down the industry into subcategories allowing members to find breaking news, videos, blogs, forums, vendors, suppliers, associations and other resources that are only accessible to HSMAI members. These hospitality sectors are included in Econnect:
There’s even a way to expand contacts globally by using the Member Database. This international database acts as a forum to get feedback directly from other HSMAI members who are the best in the business.
