An evening fuelled by conversation, intelligence and real world experience will be brought to hospitality students by the event management students at Conestoga College in conjunction with the
Alumni Relations department.
Conestoga hospitality alumni and industry professionals are participating in the hospitality networking night being held on April 16 at the Kitchener Market from 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Students from the following programs participated: bartending, culinary fundamentals, culinary management, culinary skills, event management, hospitality and tourism management, hospitality foundations, hospitality management – hotel and restaurant and hospitality operations – food and beverage. All are invited to this free event in order to make valuable connections for their future careers.
According to their advertisement, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.”
Kristal Beer, Conestoga College Alumni Relations event organizer, said the evening will include a speed networking session followed by a reception including hors d’oeuvres, door prizes and a cash bar.
“Based on the number of students in attendance, we want to set (the networking sessions) up based on programs so the students can talk to people directly in the field. The reception will be the time (students) will mingle and talk to everyone,” said Beer.
The evening would not be possible if it were not for sponsors, including the Kitchener Market, The Cake Box, Appetizingly Yours Events and Catering and Conestoga Student Inc.

Students are asked to register by Friday, April 13.
