Message from the Board of Directors

Due to the current challenges of COVID-19, HEC 96 will take place in a predominantly virtual format. The opportunity to completely reimagine HEC through a virtual format undoubtedly allows for extensive creativity and innovation throughout all departments. 

 

HEC 96 will include programming events during both the Fall and Spring semesters. In November, we will be partnering with eCornell to host a Keynote event, open to the public. From March 11-12, 2021, we will be hosting a virtual conference made up of Keynotes, panels, and interactive events. The Rooms team will be communicating with conference guests through various digital channels, in addition to creating and shipping personalized guest amenity boxes. Please be on the look out for additional announcements for our Spring meal kits, virtual wine tastings, and our exclusive HEC food-product line.

 

Your conference registration fees contribute toward the HEC programming for our attendees and our students alike. From food & beverage training programs, student engagement and development events, virtual content equipment, and other planning expenses, we appreciate your continued support of the students involved in HEC.
