Regional Symposium


The CHMA Board is pleased to invite you & your campus hospitality leadership team to our annual 1-day Symposium!

This workshop will focus on mitigating significant cost increases that are only a few weeks away! With the upcoming minimum wage increases in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, we will be faced with significant labour and product cost increases throughout 2018. How we handle these increases will impact our guest experience significantly. This is our chance to work together to share ideas and initiatives to ensure our businesses and services can weather the storm of unpredictability over the next year.

Join us and our very special guest Matt Rolfe (a CHMA favorite!) from Westshore Hospitality Consulting as we determine our best path forward for a successfuly 2018 and beyond!

Lunch will be provided, along with a great chance to network later in the afternoon. This event will be held at one of Toronto’s largest independent breweries – tours and tastings will help us wrap up our day.

This event is FREE with limited space available. Please RSVP you & your team today!
