This exposure was wonderful. The way the institutes explained the programs, kind of opened doors for me, and made me understand what I can do ahead.
Postgraduate Student
What attracted me to this event was the sheer idea of a niche, dedicated expo. Everywhere you go you need to hunt for your specialty; here, every desk I went to had something to offer me.
Working Professional
My parents and I drove down from Pune for this event. I am happy that we made it. We got info that you don’t normally get online.
Undergraduate Student
I think it is really essential to have an expo like this because people don’t really know much about PG and MBA courses in hospitality.
Working Professional
It was good, they were really helpful…most of the representatives. I went to see, like, 5-6 colleges. They had a lot of information for me, a lot of advice…that was really nice
