The 2022 CentralCHRIE Conference was hosted in conjunction with the Purdue University White Lodging-J.W. Marriott, Jr. School of Hospitality and Tourism Management’s inaugural annual Spirit of Hospitality Summit on September 29th and 30th. It was well attended with a number of industry professionals, faculty, and staff traveling from outside of the Purdue community as well as faculty and students (both graduate and undergraduate level) from Purdue University. CentralCHRIE was represented by seven states and ten universities with approximately 34 member attendees. The Hospitality Summit featured over 30 educational sessions along with four keynote sessions, a networking event, a poster session sponsored by CentralCHRIE, and reception for CentralCHRIE members, all of which provided federation members with opportunities to engage with various programs.
