UNT’s Hospitality Career Expo Experienced another Record Breaking Year
July 11, 2013

In Spring, 2013, a record 67 hospitality companies, 45 at the corporate level, convened on the UNT campus to participate in the 16th Annual Hospitality Career Expo and compete for over 900 UNT Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) students. Freeman, the leading exhibit and event management company in the world, supported the Expo as the Platinum Sponsor. More than 200 recruiters, including 30 UNT alumni, were welcomed with a luncheon prepared and served by hospitality management students, followed by the three-hour Expo. The day ended with a Student Connection Reception for recruiters, faculty, and top students selected by recruiters during the Expo.

Twenty-six new companies joined the Expo this year. One newcomer was Minute Suites at DFW International Airport, who came to the Expo to hire UNT Hospitality and Tourism Management students exclusively. Another new company to the Expo was Benchmark Hospitality. Marina Del Valle, Benchmark’s Human Resources Director, stated, “The event is a great way to meet potential colleagues in a positive atmosphere.”

Each year more and more hospitality recruiters attend the Expo to find quality educated professionals who are prepared to face the day to day challenges of the hospitality industry. HTM Career Development Coordinator, Rosa Malave, stated, “The Hospitality Career Expo opens a lot of doors for students to realize their potential within the hospitality industry and we are thankful for our relationships with our industry partners.”

The 2014 Hospitality Career Expo is already on its way to yet another record breaking year. Space is limited. To reserve a booth today please go to http://cmht.unt.edu/htmexpo.
