2017 Top HAT Award Winners

Tourism Association of New Mexico (TANM) had the TIARRA awards and New Mexico Lodgers Association (NMLA) had the Stars of the Industry Awards but since those two have merged to form the new New Mexico Hospitality Association, we brought the Top HAT Awards Gala front and center with a fun-filled night of celebration!
