Students get advice from Huddersfield’s events Terriers

Hospitality stars of the future recently visited Huddersfield Town
FC’s John Smith’s Stadium to boost their studies with advice from the venue’s
event experts.

Around 50 hospitality and business management students from the
University of Huddersfield visited the John Smith’s Stadium to meet with
experts from Sodexo Prestige Venues and Event. Sodexo manages conferences and
banqueting at the ground.

After welcoming the students, Sodexo
 MD at Kirklees Stadium
Development Ltd, Gareth Davies (pictured), gave the students an insight into
the history of the stadium and its pioneering position as the UK’s first
community stadium. 

Retail Manager Jason Harvey spoke about his graduate career path
and the challenges of providing large-scale hospitality for match day and
non-match day visitors alike, before taking part in a question and answer
session with the undergraduates.
