Welcome to the 2017 MGM Resorts International Recipe Showdown

We want to thank our wonderful meeting planning and travel community for your enthusiasm, participation and continued partnership.  It has been such a rewarding and fun program for us to conduct around the country and we are already well under way for our 2017 Showdown.

 

Food & Beverage has become such an anchor of the overall meetings and travel industry that exudes a passion that cannot be replicated through any other experience.  We believe that life is about “Counting the Moments” and the recipe showdown has created memorable moments that will last a lifetime.

 

We hope that you will join us in 2017 at one of our showdowns across North America.  Submit a recipe, raise your hand to be a judge or just join us at any of the experiences.

 

Either way, let’s get ready to showdown.

 

Wishing you a successful 2017!

 

Michael Dominguez, CHSE
SVP & Chief Sales Officer, Corporate Hotel Sales
