Sponsored: Workforce and volunteers sought to welcome tens of thousands
Utah will again be on the global stage when the Utah Jazz host NBA All-Star 2023, with the celebrations tipping off on Friday, February 17 and culminating on Sunday, February 19. To help local businesses attract an influx of customers throughout the weekend, and to ensure an all-star experience for all guests, Visit Salt Lake is working to recruit robust hospitality workforce and volunteer teams to support event activations and help show off the Salt Lake we all love.
“We are excited to host NBA All-Star 2023 and welcome a global audience to experience Utah’s many notable offerings while interacting with our vibrant community,” said Jim Olson, president of the Utah Jazz. “This is a marquee, global event that will have tremendous local economic impact, and we are grateful for the support of our community in helping ensure that NBA All-Star 2023 has people talking about Utah for decades to come.” ‘
Visit Salt Lake has multiple All-Star hospitality workforce positions available. As we build anticipation to welcome guests from across the world to Salt Lake County for NBA All-Star February 17-19, 2023, Visit Salt Lake is recruiting members from the hospitality industry to create an all-star team to serve our guests. This opportunity to sign up will enter folks into a raffle filled with Utah Jazz games, University of Utah gymnastic and basketball games, ski passes and more.
“If you or someone you know enjoys hosting celebrations and making new friends, consider becoming a valued member to our all-star hospitality workforce,” says Clay Partain, Executive Director of Sports Salt Lake. “We are working with hospitality business to compile a list of full-time, part-time, and temporary career opportunities that will welcome and support our community during the NBA All-Star Weekend.” Here’s how you can register: https://www.visitsaltlake.com/hospitality-jobs/nba-all-star-jobs/
