November 5, 2014. We hosted our first NEWH Chicago Student Hospitality Roundtable. We had attendance of 28 students and two professors in addition to our seven industry experts (interior design, international interior design, procurement, hospitality management, hospitality branding and culinary). Students were divided into groups that rotated to the experts tables for 12 minute sessions.  The event was held at the DL Couch showroom at the Merchandise Mart in early evening hours with a light dinner provided.  We had a simple exit survey to gauge the effectiveness of the event and received outstanding marks from attendees.  Of 23 respondents the event rated an average of 9.363 on a scale of 1- 10.  The comments ranged from desiring more time with experts to complimenting us on the great variety of experts and how welcoming they were to mentioning the fact that they had no idea there were so many opportunities in the hospitality industry. We will definitely hold this event in the future and feel the first week of November worked well in addition to the venue.
