Taylor's School of Hospitality, Tourism & Events (SHTE) and School of Food Studies & Gastronomy (SFSG) together with Alumni Office organized an Alumni Marketplace with the theme of "COME, CONNECT & CREATE!". This was an occasion where alumni COME to the event, CONNECT with other alumni and CREATE the business opportunities. 30 alumni from various programme of SHTE and SFSG attended the event at Tangerine Restaurant & Deck, Taylor’s University.
The alumni were from the Hospitality, Tourism, Events, Culinary, Culinology, and Master’s programmes. This was the first physical alumni event after the pandemic where alumni catch up with Lecturers and other Alumni.
This event was aimed to enhanced alumni collaboration, where during the event, it allowed alumni to share about themselves and current job status, connect with others and share business ideas/opportunities, and to create opportunities to showcase businesses and alumni achievements.
On the event day, the alumni showcased their business or company through the display of physical bunting, digital advert and product placement. The alumni that embodied their company were from MONIN Asia KL, General Assembly Malaysia, NCH, Woots! Event, WuRen Production, Varmah Ventures, VCR, Coliseum Café and Circe’s Brew Kombucha Malaysia.
The event received positive feedbacks from alumni and they have extended their wishes to have similar event setup to take place in future. Till our next alumni event, SHTE, SFSG and Alumni Office hope to reconnect with many more alumni.
