The Lasell College Hospitality Department is pleased to announce its annual Hospitality Day will be held on March 2, 2017.  The keynote speakers will be Jill Tate, Partner at Corinthian Events, and Milton Herbert, Executive Director of Boston Convention Marketing Center (BCMC). 

Ms. Tate commands a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of conference and event planning, destination management, and hospitality in general.  As a Partner at Corinthian, she helps runs one of the biggest event and destination management companies in New England.  

Mr. Herbert joined the BCMC in 2003 as the Executive Director.  Under his leadership, the BCMC achieved success in building the Advantage Boston brand and the Signature Boston brand to place Boston as a top ten destination for convention business.  With this success, Mr. Herbert has helped raise occupancy at the Hynes Convention Center and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to high levels.  

In addition to Ms. Tate and Mr Herbert, the daylong event features multiple panels and provides networking opportunities - it provides students the opportunity to meet with successful industry executives, attend workshops to prepare their individual career paths, and apply for internships and jobs.
