History of the MHAA
The Medicine Hat Accommodation Association was formed in 2006. Several hotel managers in Medicine Hat, AB saw a need for the individual properties in the city to meet on a regular basis. The group discussed common goals and issues within the hotel industry. Also, as a coordinated group the hotels hoped to achieve goals individual properties could not.
The primary goals of the MHAA are to address local hotel issues and devise solutions for needs seen in the industry, such as the issue of employee shortages. The MHAA focuses on attracting additional visitors to Medicine Hat through joint promotions and advertising.
