Anthony G. Marshall was a renowned educator, author, speaker, and columnist for Hotel & Motel Management Magazine. His writing brought hospitality law to the masses, so that operators—not just lawyers—could understand what the law expected of them. He became the first recipient of the Tony Marshall Award at the 2005 Hospitality Law Conference.
Each year at the Hospitality Law Conference, the Tony Marshall Award is given to someone who has made pioneering and lasting contributions to the field of hospitality law. In presenting the award, the selection board seeks to recognize someone who exemplifies Tony Marshall’s commitment to hospitality law.
