Global Hospitality Education Expo

The Global Hospitality Education Expo has grown to become India’s biggest higher education event with a dedicated focus on subjects and careers in the hospitality and culinary space.

We have conducted 4 editions of the expo and started way in 2018 with in-person education fairs in Mumbai and Delhi. In 2019, the second edition, we took the expo to 5 cities, namely Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Jaipur and Kolkata. The next two editions were organized as virtual events, in 2020 and 2021 respectively.


Over the years, 52+ universities and institutes from 19+ countries have participated in our hospitality focused education event. The expo has gained massive popularity amongst hospitality focused students in India.

Testimonials - Previous Expos

The event was well organized, platform chosen was user friendly and easy to navigate. The inflow of students was really great with little or no inactive period. Since the leads were pre-qualified, students had directed questions.

Krishna Dhuri - Les Roches, Glion & École Ducasse

The expo gave good exposure to students, teachers and hospitality professionals, where they could explore career options and programs from reputed institutes. I am so grateful to the organizers and the institutes for coming to Kolkata and organizing this event. It was a wonderful experience. My students and I also attended a panel discussion on hospitality entrepreneurship.
