AAHOA hosted its inaugural Volleyball Tournament this past Saturday, November 19, 2022, at the Game Point Event Center in Orlando, FL. Nearly 30 teams played in the tournament, bringing together hoteliers from Florida and the U.S. to show their volleyball skills. The game started at 10 a.m. and went throughout the day until 9 p.m. AAHOA Chairman Neal Patel, Vice Chairman Bharat Patel, and Secretary KP Patel were among the nearly 200 players spiking the volleyball and having a great time on the court.
The Nashville team emerged victorious as tournament champions, and the Austin team came in second place. The Thieves team was recognized with the “Fair Play Award” for exemplifying fairness and sportsmanship throughout all the matches. It was also great to honor AAHOA Member Priyank Patel with the “MVP Award” for his passion, skills, and dedication to his team on and off the court.
AAHOA thanks DISH Business for sponsoring this inaugural Volleyball Tournament and all the players and attendees who made this first event a great success.
"Marquee Lodging Advisors had the pleasure and honor of sponsoring the first annual AAHOA Volleyball Tournament in Orlando, Florida. Marquee typically attends and sponsors formal regional AAHOA hotel events and conferences throughout the year. However, the volleyball tournament provides a more relaxed and casual atmosphere. The volleyball tournament is longer than most regional events, allowing Marquee to spend additional time with AAHOA members and build deeper connections outside of a business formal environment. We appreciate the connections, introductions, and relationships that Marquee has established and expanded during both the AAHOA regional events and the volleyball tournament - we look forward to sponsoring both types of events again in the future!" -Damian Gordillo, President/Co-Founder, Marquee Lodging Advisors
