PSHRS 2020 Industry Awards- Hospitality Executive of the Year Award and Gala Reception Postponed
The current global coronavirus crisis has compelled us to make the difficult decision to postpone the Penn State Hotel & Restaurant Society Hospitality (PSHRS) Hospitality Executive of the Year Award event honoring Chris Nassetta, President & CEO of Hilton, originally planned for April 2, 2020.

We are working with our partners at Hilton to reschedule the event. You will be among the first to know details of a rescheduled celebration that we will share with you as soon as we are able.

We appreciate your ongoing support for our school and the future of our industry at-large, and send our best wishes during this unsettling time for you, your colleagues, and you families.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at shmevents@psu.edu.
