Hall of Fame Dinner
2023 New Mexico Tourism Hall of Fame
The New Mexico Tourism Hall of Fame is the highest honor for New Mexico hospitality and tourism professionals. Induction into the New Mexico Tourism Hall of Fame is a recognition and celebration of the lifelong achievement and the commitment to the ideals of professionalism, integrity, and service that embody the profession.
NMHA evaluates candidates for the New Mexico Tourism Hall of Fame through a multi-layered approach. Phase I of the nomination process is conducted through peer-submitted validation. The HOF Committee will then select a group of finalists that will be asked to submit additional information.
The HOF Committee will consider that additional information and select the 2023 inductees.
