On September 26, 2015, the city of Memphis hosted the 12th annual Mid-South Pride event, and of course, Hilton was proud to be a part of it! The festival attracted more than 8,000 attendees and included entertainment from local musicians, speakers, and dancers. The festival featured more than 80 vendors and informational booths and closed with a Pride parade that rolled down Historic Beale Street.

This year team members from Hilton’s Memphis Campus worked together to create an interactive booth for visitors of the festival. This year’s theme was “Love Equals Love.” Team members Amanda DeVlugt, Damon Buckholz, James Cash, Sam Hargis, Suzie Szanyi, and Luke Vanhoose spent time setting up Hilton’s booth and creating a photo booth to capture fun images and entice attendees to learn more about Hilton. Better yet, visitors who captured photos in the booth and tagged #HiltonWorldWideMidSouthPride in social media had the chance to win a free night stay at any Hilton brand hotel!
