From the Director

Welcome from Cornell’s CHR. It is hard to believe, but the fall semester is quickly coming to a close as we approach December!

This fall saw the successful relaunch of the Cornell Hospitality Research Summit (CHRS). We had 180 participants at the event and are already starting to plan for the fifth CHRS.

In an effort to grow attendees and expand the reach of CHRS, we are planning to relocate the next event—preliminary planning has us looking at hosting the event in New York City. Check back to the CHRS website for regular updates!

We are also in the planning stages for two other CHR events—a technology-focused roundtable in San Francisco in early January, and a joint event with the Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations and the Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures in April in DC. Watch your inbox for details of these events.

As always, feel free to reach out to discuss ways in which we can collaborate on research projects, as the CHR is always looking to engage faculty and students with industry on interesting projects.
