Foundation

Established in 1983 to serve as the research and educational arm of the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International. In 2018, The HSMAI Foundation established a new mission statement:
To elevate the overall caliber and performance of sales, marketing and revenue management professionals in the global hospitality industry by driving initiatives that will attract new talent, develop emerging talent, and engage existing talent.

To bring this vision to life, the foundation launched its first ever capital campaign. This is an industry-wide effort to raise funds in support of talent development.
