NMHA Conference on Hospitality and Tourism

November 16 – 17, 2021

Albuquerque Convention Center

New Mexico’s marquee industry event, featuring quality educational programs & industry networking! The New Mexico True Conference on Hospitality and Tourism presented by the New Mexico Hospitality Association is the “how-to” conference held annually in New Mexico. It features incredible keynote speakers and breakout sessions to help you run your travel and tourism businesses more efficiently and effectively. Check back in late August for agenda updates and registration information.



This year we will not be hosting our traditional TopHAT event.
We will have an industry recognition event tied in to our November conference.


Celebrate those who have performed exceptional work to elevate the tourism and lodging industry in New Mexico. The New Mexico Top HAT (Hospitality and Tourism) Awards Gala is our annual dinner and awards ceremony that celebrates the top hospitality and tourism individuals, businesses, campaigns, venues, and teams. The Top HAT Awards Gala is also our opportunity to help build a brighter future for New Mexico hospitality and tourism by contributing to our Hospitality and Tourism Scholarship Fund, powered by the Albuquerque Community Foundation.

We’re saving this space for TopHAT 2022!
