HSMAI South Florida 36th Annual Hospitality Awards Gala at Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort

November 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

36th Annual Hospitality Awards Gala

Our chapter will have the honor of celebrating our industry’s best in seven hospitality categories, from rising star newcomer to superstars in sales & marketing, general manager, and revenue management categories.

We also have the great pleasure to honor our Legend of the Year, to which this year, HSMAI South Florida Chapter has proudly chosen Rocco M Angelo, Associate Dean at Florida International University. Rocco has over the 60 years’ experience in the industry and has had a profound impact on many of the hospitality industry people as they progressed through their own careers. Most of his early career was spent in the world of hospitality industry analytics. Rocco was a pioneer in this world, beginning with his tenure at Horwath and Horwath. Via his very active role with the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, he influenced countless up-and-coming students to enter that world of analysis. In the early 1970’s, along with Tony Marshall, Rocco was a cornerstone in the launch of the hospitality program at today’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at FIU. After teaching and mentoring many hundreds and thousands of FIU students over the four decades since, Rocco can still be found at almost every major hospitality industry event representing FIU. Additionally, when he is not traveling, he is mentoring and cheering on students from his office at FIU. HSMAI is delighted Rocco Angelo will join a long list of Hospitality Legends.
