Join the Celebration on May 23

‘Exceptional service’, ‘incredibly helpful’ and ‘truly went the extra mile’ are among the many accolades guests at local hotels gave to members of the Flint & Genesee hospitality industry last year. Those who made the greatest impression will be honored as customer service superstars during the 25th Annual Flint & Genesee Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) Hospitality Awards.

The event takes place on Thursday, May 23 at the Holiday Inn Gateway Centre from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Ted Valley will serve as the master of ceremonies.

Each year the Flint & Genesee CVB collaborates with hotels, restaurants and business establishments to gather customer commendations for high levels of hospitality and customer service from across the region.

This year, a Community Champion will also be honored for assisting the CVB with bringing in a meeting with the greatest economic impact for the region.

The cost to attend the Hospitality Awards is $25 for nominees and $30 for the general public. For more information contact Holly Carlton at (810) 600-1452 or To register contact Brian Sullivan at (810) 600-1404 or
