Building Arizona for 20 Years! The Annual AMCA Awards Banquet at Phoenix Sheraton in Downtown Phoenix, Nov. 4

In 2004 – 2008, AMCA members helped to build the first hotel built in downtown Phoenix since 1976, the Sheraton Grand Phoenix. City of Phoenix approved the construction of a $350 million convention center hotel that would be owned by Phoenix and developed and operated by Sheraton Hotels as a Starwood facility. Since then, we have seen vibrant growth in downtown Phoenix, including additional hotels, high-rise living, educational facilities, entertainment venues, and the like. The AMCA will host its annual AMCA Awards Banquet at the Phoenix Sheraton on Saturday, November 4th. For information, contact Ricardo Carlo at (602) 495-0026. —————- This year marks the 20th anniversary since the founding of the AMCA, and like the business leaders who started the organization, the leadership team wanted to leave a legacy for the AMCA to support continued growth in our industry. In 2017’s newsletter will feature some of the hallmarks of AMCA history.
