Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association

If you are a marketing/sales professional interested in hospitality industry - this article is for you. I found out about a good organization defenitely worth checking out: Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International They are very active all across America but especially in Chicago since it is a major tourist and business destination. They organize various events as well as provide useful resources for industry professionals as well as beginners, students, for instance (free resume posting and free resume critique will be very helpful).

I strongly suggest checking out their Resources and Education and Events pages.

What's also unique about this organization is that they have subgroups - Special Interest Groups that provide some extra resources for people of certain interests in hospitality area.
