Mayor Betsy Price
Visit Fort Worth honored Mayor Betsy Price with its Hospitality Award at the tourism organization’s seventh annual meeting.
Price has logged tens of thousands of miles selling Fort Worth for tourism and other economic development initiatives around the state, nation and world. She has supported many initiatives that benefit local quality of life and the visitor economy, including Sundance Square Plaza, Dickies Arena, Stockyards redevelopment, expansion of the Fort Worth Convention Center and creation of the Fort Worth Film Commission.
Visit Fort Worth bestows the annual award on an individual or organization for significant contributions to the city’s hospitality industry. Previous honorees were Holt Hickman, the museums of the Cultural District, musician Leon Bridges, DFW International Airport and the Fort Worth Zoo.
Heim BBQ’s Nick Snow was the inaugural recipient of the Beyond Award created to recognize hospitality workers who go above and beyond to create a special visitor experience.
