The Arkansas Restaurant Association, the Arkansas Lodging Association and the Arkansas Travel Council join together for the 2015 Arkansas Hospitality Association Vendor Showcase & Convention. Come find everything you need to run your business all year, learn at top-notch educational seminars and enjoy the hospitality games featuring the bartending competition.
Highlighted on the Showcase floor every year are a variety of live demonstrations and exciting competitions that make up the Hospitality Games. These games consist of the following: bartending competition, bell cart wheelie relay, maintenance assembly and relay, banquet competition and a bed making competition. The winners of each competition earn bragging rights in their trade, helping bartenders and hotel staff build their reputations as top talent.

With your purchase of booth space, you can let people know about all of the wonderful businesses, places, and organizations there are to do business with and explore in Arkansas and speak with your potential visitors and customers.
