Passion4Hospitality, the Institute of Hospitality’s annual student and graduate event, has been postponed.


Passion4Hospitality, the Institute of Hospitality’s annual student and graduate event, has been postponed and will not be taking place on 9 March 2020.

This is in reaction to concerns raised by several universities and hotel schools who were scheduled to attend over the coronavirus threat.

The day included a conference, a careers fair featuring over 40 hospitality businesses, a HOTS business game and a debating competition.  Over 400 students were due to attend.

It is hoped that the event will be rescheduled later in the year.


We have now reached our capacity for this event, however, if you wish to go onto our waiting list please contact
