A total of 85 sessions were conducted where topics like marketing, hospitality, revenue management, slow food, wines, spirits, tourism and culinary etc. We had international and national experts on the webinar addressing the student community.  UKTI has been spurring and learning for all the participants. We found out about the difficulties looked by fruitful hoteliers, how a passion turns into a profession. It was an incredible openness for all the students and teachers of the department of Hotel management, as there was a direct interface between students, alumni, and speakers. All the experts made this experience exceptionally meaningful. It was an incredible openness for all the students.
