What is a Networking Roundtable?

This is a free, networking event. Over 50 experts in the overlapping sport, entertainment, hospitality and event management industries will be situated at individual table in our new Pharmacy Building. A wide selection of experts will be present ranging in age, experience, organizational role, industry type, etc. Undergraduate and graduate students will meet with the different experts that align with their career goals or interests. They can meet with one expert or twenty – whatever can fit in 2.5 hours!

Compared to a traditional panel discussion, the roundtable is a much more individualized experience for the experts and the attendees – and that has led to its popularity and effectiveness. Faculty use this event to reinforce the importance of networking and mentoring; to expand students’ visions on careers available in these massive industries; and to provide essential perspective not found within the walls of a classroom.

This event is free for all Sport and Entertainment Business and Hospitality and Event Business students, as well as the whole CUW community, including students from all schools and alumni.

New this year is the oportunity to particpiate in a "match" day. Students will also have the chance to  participate in a 1-day immersion at one of these organizations.
