Zista Events to organise 5th edition of India’s only hospitality & culinary-focussed higher education fair

The Global Hospitality Education Expo is being organised in four cities

Hospitality and Tourism is one of the most dynamic, fast growing and challenging industries in the 21st century. As an industry, it has shown resilience, despite the varied fluctuations in the economy. The industry has not only managed to sustain itself, but has bounced back even stronger.

Many students across India are looking to pursue courses in hospitality and culinary, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. They are ambitious digital natives, bold and curious, with an acute awareness of the need to be sustainable. They want to start new businesses, or join existing players in the ecosystem and help them to expand and grow in holistic ways.

To support such students, Zista Events has been organising India’s only hospitality & culinary focussed higher education fair – the Global Hospitality Educational Expo. This year, the 5th edition of the event will be taking place in four cities - Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi.

Business Head Mitali Rawool said, “We are absolutely delighted to bring our flagship event back to the face-to-face format. We started our journey of subjects-specific education fairs with hospitality, way back in 2018. Now, we have more than five subject-specific events, in the field of Art and Design, STEM, Engineering and Business Management. Naturally, our hospitality expo is very close to our hearts. This year, students will have an unparalleled opportunity to network and engage with some of the best hotel and culinary schools from across the world, and to learn from some amazing industry speakers.”
