Last year, Bournemouth University held its first student and industry Hospitality Management Student Conference and next week Bournemouth University will be doing it again.
This year the conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Hotel Bloomsbury in London.
Last year, over 90 students from the School of Tourism travelled to the Kensington Hilton hotel in London, and were joined by around 30 students from West London College, where BU’s top-up hospitality degree is taught.
Students were able to listen to presentations and participate in a live Q&A with leading hospitality professionals from establishments such as Hilton Worldwide Europe, Deloitte LLP, charity Hospitality Action, and the Inter-Continent Hotel Group amongst others.
This year students will again hear presentations from industry and have the opportunity to take part in Q& A’s with key indsurty players including Jose Luiz, Human Resources Director for Shangri-La at the Shard and speakers from the London Marriott and Intercontinental Hotels
This year already looks set to be another great experience for our students and provide them with opportunities to interact with potential employers.
