Visit Montgomery. Montgomery County’s official tourism website, announced its award winners for the 2016 Hospitality Awards at the Annual Meeting and Hospitality Awards Luncheon on October 16 at the Bethesda Marriott.

Hanna passed away in 2011 at the age of 89, and left behind a legacy with the Visit Montgomery organization. In 1994, he introduced legislation that provided for a 3.5 percent allocation of hotel tax collections to the then named Conference and Visitors Bureau of Montgomery County. He was successful in getting this legislation passed and was always a big supporter and cheerleader for the organization.
