Industry Exchange

Industry Exchange

At the last Industry Exchange event in December, we welcomed Ms Corien Pompe, Design Manager Identity & Eras-Magdalena, Vice President People Development & Staffing EAME Starwood Hotels & Resorts (former Alumna). The theme of the day was 'Trends and Developments in Hospitality' and after the key note speakers the group spent the afternoon at round tables discussing key hospitality topics. Designed to bring Hotelschool The Hague closer to Industry, we are very pleased with the enthusiastic response we have received from both Alumni and Industry on this event. If you are interested in participating in Industry Exchange events throughout 2014 please contact the Industry Relations office at
