Texas Tourism Awards Program
The Texas Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus annually awards the Marion Szurek Leadership Award and the Texas Tourism Trailblazer Award (formerly the Catalyst Award) to individuals who have made impressive contributions to the Texas Tourism industry. In 2022 and to celebrate the association's 50th Anniversary, TACVB will introduce the Texas Tourism Hall of Fame.
