Hotel Ezra Cornell (HEC)
Ithaca - NY,
Hotel Ezra Cornell is a three-day, student-run business conference for hospitality industry leaders and members of the Cornell community from across the globe. A 94-year tradition of the School of the Hotel Administration, HEC is one of the oldest traditions at Cornell and an unparalleled introduction to the students, faculty, and alumni of the preeminent hospitality program in the nation. Featuring some of the most talented individuals in the business, the conference will discuss the latest developments in hospitality and include leisure events for attendees to network with other professionals and meet the students who will be leading the industry in the future.
Beyond the Lines of Traditional Hospitality
In today's modern landscape, hospitality is everywhere. The concept of service is now manifesting itself in surprising ways across industries from technology to healthcare and everything in between.
This year, HEC will examine the ways that hospitality infuses itself into other industries and breaks the boundaries of what is considered "traditional". Our program will highlight unexpected mergers, uncommon combinations, and the synergy between service and the rest of the world. We will explore how the hospitality industry is doing more for its guests, society, and the environment outside of conventional expectations.
Leading this conversation as a keynote speaker will be Mrs. Valerie Ann Wilson, the founder, owner, and CEO of Valerie Wilson Travel.
