We’ve always believed that the best way to retain the information you learn in the classroom is through continuous application. With repetitive practice, what you hear discussed during classes becomes muscle memory.
This belief is what pushes the trainers and admin team here at Pacific Training Group to look for opportunities for our students to apply what they are taught in the training room. Recently, one such opportunity was provided to our Hospitality and Event Management students through the Foodservice Australia Expo, an annual event focused on the foodservice industry.
Held this year at the Sydney International Convention Centre on the 24th of October, Foodservice Australia showcased the latest food, beverage, catering and IT equipment for businesses. With over 450 exhibitors and special events including Chef of the Year, National Restaurant Conference, Café School and the Chef Success Workshop, the expo was where the who’s who in the foodservice industry learnt about new trends.
Fran Cumming, our 12-year veteran instructor for our Event Management courses accompanied her students to the expo and participated in their activities. They had a great time and gained precious insight volunteering for the Australian Culinary Federation in the food and beverage service for the luncheons of the special events.
All in all, our students had a great time applying Fran’s teachings during the event and were able to observe how new technology is moulding the foodservice sector. The valuable experiences they gained during the expo will allow them to pursue even greater heights in their chosen field, and we will continue to partner with them in making sure they get the most out of their training.
