WHAT: Visit Corpus Christi will host its annual HOSPiS Awards on Thursday, April 29, 2021, at the Omni Bayfront Hotel, to recognize and celebrate individuals and businesses that are making an impact on the Corpus Christi tourism and meeting industries. Over the past month, the community has had the chance to nominate hospitality industry members in 10 categories. This year’s event will be a hybrid format with a virtual presentation of the Visit Corpus Christi Annual Meeting, including remarks by Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo, followed by an in-person dinner and awards presentation.

Sponsorships and individual tickets are available. New this year, Visit Corpus Christi has created a $50 sponsorship level where donors can provide admission for a hospitality industry nominee who might not be able to attend the event due to cost.
