About the Event

After a year apart with only virtual gatherings, it’s time for our industry to celebrate in person (socially distant of course) at AHLA’s annual Night of a Thousand Stars gala! The night before ALIS, we’ll honor the incredible resilience of hotel employees across the country and celebrate the AHLA Foundation programs that are helping the industry recruit and retain the stars of tomorrow. The hospitality industry is like a family and we are looking forward to welcoming home our family with a special, starlit reunion on a scenic rooftop in downtown Los Angeles.  We’ll be joined by hoteliers from across the country including AHLA’s board members, the 2021 Stars of the Industry award winners and up and coming hospitality super stars. 

Congratulations to our Stars of the Industry Award winners and finalists!



Night of A Thousand Stars Gala

AHLA Foundation Beneficiaries

On July 25, 2021 we'll gather together in Los Angeles as the industry gives back. While this year’s celebration will be socially distant and outside – that won’t stop us from doing what the hospitality industry does best – having fun while also serving those in need. All proceeds from the event will go directly to supporting the AHLA Foundation’s vital workforce initiatives.  These programs are key to developing the incredible talent our industry depends on through training programs like the apprenticeship and the Empowering Youth Program, through scholarships and through our diversity, equity and inclusion initiative.  



Three Times the Visibility. Two Signature Events. One Memorable Experience.
