In support of the constantly growing and evolving hospitality industry
Hospitality is one of the most exciting and diverse industries. In recent years, it has quickly become one of the largest business sectors and employers around the world. One in every ten jobs is in hospitality and according to the World Travel and Tourism Council, the lucrative industry employs over 235 million people worldwide.
A report made in 2012 estimated that Asia Pacific dominated the market of hotels under construction at 45%, with the United States lagging far second at 20%. Almost half of the hotels opened between 2013 and 2016 will be located in Asia and as a result, career prospects look extremely positive. There will be a spike in demand year on year for passionate professionals who understand the industry and possess the right skill set in management. It is the career to have at this moment, and most importantly, for the future.
As a leading institute in the Hospitality Management sector, Enderun Colleges is at the forefront of this trend, by bringing to fruition a pioneering event focused on careers in the hospitality sector. The Hotels and Resorts Careers Conference, to be held on February 16, 2016 at The Tent at Enderun, will be the first culminating event in the Philippines for all industry executives, educators, managers, employees, students and hotel designers to share one forum and discuss multiple innovative ideas revolving around their shared passion for hospitality.
Co-presented by the Council of Hotel and Restaurant Educators of the Philippines (COHREP), the conference program will include a culminating session that will begin with an industry overview. Trend Alert: Key Issues and Developments Facing the Industry Today is a much awaited topic, where attendees will hear insights from representatives from leading hotels such as Steven Wolstenholme, COO of Tiger Resorts and Frank Reichenbach, General Manager of Marco Polo Ortigas.
The event will then be divided into two break-out sessions, where attendees have a unique chance to select and participate in talks that suit their specific interests. HRM graduates and hotel job seekers have much to look forward to, as this is will be their opportune moment to personally present credentials and network with future employers from renown hotels, resorts and casinos – Marriott Manila, Resorts World Manila, Edsa Shangri-la, and Microtel to name a few.
With its constant evolution and wide array of career paths to choose from, this stimulating and diverse industry has no signs of slowing down. Attendees have much to look forward to at the Hotels and Resorts Career Conference 2016. It will be the first of many that will grow and evolve, year upon year, alongside the lucrative industry it was created for, keeping in mind whom it was created for – those who seek a passionate career in Hospitality.
