Sodexo Provide Hospitality Advice To University Students


Hospitality students from the University of Huddersfield were invited to the Stadium for advice from industry experts Sodexo Prestige, the Stadiums conference and events team.

The 50 Hospitality Business Management students who attended on the day were offered tips and advice from our experienced events team. This included insight from Project Manager, Annie Marchalle, on her personal experience in the industry and the wide array of conferences and events hosted by the Stadium. MD of KSDL, Gareth Davies, also spoke with the students about the history of the Stadium and its pioneering position as the UK’s first community Stadium.

The students, all of whom are in their second year, were then involved in a question and answer session with Retail Manager Jason Harvey, who provided relatable insight into his graduate career path and the challenges faced in large scale hospitality.

Annie said “It’s always a pleasure to showcase our facilities – particularly to the next generations of hospitality experts.

The Stadium has a special place in the community and the wide range of events we hold – from conferences to our hugely popular Christmas private parties – is testament to that.”
