CANCELLED - Student Education Series Emerging Leaders Hospitality Seminar

Saturday, September 24, 2016 - 9:00am to 3:00pm


Join SITE, NACE, HSMAI, PCMA, ILEA, MPI & GMIC for a legendary Emerging Leaders Student Education and Networking event in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 24th.  

This one-day event will ensure college students network and engage with industry peers and leaders, as well as explore the many exciting career paths available within the hospitality sector.  Kicking off with keynote speaker Michael Lyons on "The Brand of You", association networking time, and speakers panel luncheon, there will also be educational breakout sessions available by specific interest and topic. 

The excitement then continues with cityHUNT’s action-packed Scavenger Hunt, as we hunt the streets of Philadelphia in teams to solve tasks via smart phone, finally closing with a multi-media/awards reception.  Registration includes full day of educational events and includes breakfast, lunch and Scavenger Hunt.  Scholarship opportunities will also be provided.
