Created more than 31 years ago and hosted by the RI Hospitality Association and RI Hospitality Education Foundation, the Stars of the Industry Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony recognizes outstanding individuals in the restaurant, hospitality, and tourism industry.

This year, we are thrilled to bring our Stars of the Industry to the red carpet at the Providence Performing Arts Center!

Strike a pose on the Star Walk beginning at 4pm and enjoy cocktails (cash bar). The awards ceremony will take place in the gorgeous historic theater, featuring a custom-built runway and performance by Julia Cole (Nashville Recording Artist with over 90,000,000 streams).

After the awards ceremony, join fellow guests ON THE STAGE to mix & mingle with award winners and enjoy delightful food stations prepared by McGrath Catering. The after-party, with music by WRIK Entertainment, will take place in PPAC's Lounge.

We are grateful to our friends and partners at PPAC for hosting us for this event. This Theatre has come a long way from the exciting day when The Loew’s Theatre Building, now known as the Providence Performing Arts Center, opened on October 6, 1928. The “Jewel of Weybosset Street” is the perfect place to celebrate the Stars of our Industry after two difficult years.

Don’t miss the opportunity to promote your brand to the most influential hospitality leaders in Rhode Island! Learn more about Stars of the Industry Sponsorship opportunities HERE.

This event is black-tie optional. Tickets sales for premium seats (by the row) and general admission are available HERE. We look forward to seeing you all shine!
