X Events Hospitality started on 1st April 2014. We are working to ensure our 10th year is a landmark one for us and Indian hospitality. We are on a road never travelled and a lovely rollercoaster journey it has been.
The road ahead is still unchartered though at least we have a decade’s worth of experience in breaking boundaries and ceilings, and we have the industry’s full support to get it done.
Ladies In Hospitality
Our goal is to make this important programme an industry standard. The ‘Equality at Work’ initiative will continue into calendar year 2024 and academic year 2024-2025.
Int'l Chefs Day (India)
Our stated goal for ICD India is for it to be default across Indian hospitality by 2030. In that vein, we will create bigger awareness and engagement programmes that empower the ‘everyday cook’ to celebrate with their colleagues and communities.
We intend to strengthen this platform into something dynamic with numerous digital and in-person competitions. Hospitality Quiz will be something that both challenges the sector to do know more and also reflect the contemporary needs. The more you quiz with us, the better the platform becomes.
Armed Services Week
This is a new programme where Indian hospitality supports the armed forces of India. Our rationale is that anyone who has ever worn a uniform or carried a weapon in defence of India, deserves to our genuine respect and long-term support, not the filmy jingoism that masquerades as flimsy patriotism in India.
For now, 1st-7th December is our chosen week as 7th December is Armed Forces Flag Day. We intend for this to be an industry standard practice, similar to military-oriented (veteran) days in countries such as the UK, Australia, France and the USA.
Armed Services Week will have four aspects to it;
Fund collection for veteran rehab and war widows.
Special meal and accommodation discounts for veterans and serving personnel.
Ceremonies to honour local veterans and war heroes.
Hospitality skill training and employment programme for retiring personnel.
Thangam E. Philip Prize
In honour of one of the greatest persons in Indian hospitality, this award for educators is modelled on the Nobel Prize. Ms. Philip’s philosophy was to focus on the impact of one’s work by doing as much as possible with even the bare minimum of resources available.
Therefore, this prize, offered biennially in her name, is to continue her legacy of excellence by identifying and rewarding one hospitality educator who has had the greatest impact on her/his student body and community over the preceding five-year period.
Awarded by a jury of high eminence, we intend to nurture the prize into the highest recognition in Indian hospitality. A cash prize of INR five lakh will be awarded as well as a host of top-tier industry experiences and public speaking opportunities.
