Join your Event industry colleagues as we celebrate the best and brightest at the 10th Annual hospitality awards celebration:

The Bay Area Meeting Industry Excellence Awards

With its increasing popularity and last year’s sold out status, we have chosen a location that is one of San Francisco’s most beautiful historical icons. BAMIEs at the Fairmont San Francisco promises to impress, entertain, and energize all while you mix and mingle–wine in hand. The BAMIEs is a time to commemorate who we are, what we stand for and where we are going.

Celebrate with us!
