The summit is the largest of its kind in the world. It provides a space for students to network with industry experts, explore job opportunities, and build invaluable global connections.

Jack and Jennifer, both in their third year of studies, will mingle with students representing the best hospitality management schools around the world.

YHS is also an opportunity for delegates to engage with those currently at the top of their game.

Previous speakers have held key positions at companies such as LVMH, Amazon, AirBnB, Conde Nast Traveller and Marriott International.

“Attending the YHS 2024 Summit in Switzerland at EHL is a tremendous privilege and means that I will have access to future industry connections that will benefit my future career,” Jack said.

“I look forward to meeting like-minded people and learning from industry professionals about how things are done in various countries.”

Jennifer shared similar sentiments.

“I’m super keen to attend YHS; a highly regarded international summit,” she said.

“Along with the benefits of being involved in the summit, there is the opportunity to use the experience to impress future employers.”
