Hospitality Industry to Showcase Job Opportunities

The Northwest Arkansas chambers of commerce and the Arkansas Hospitality Association plan to highlight in a career fair scheduled for April 28 the employment opportunities offered by the hospitality industry.

Headlining the fair will be a panel of hospitality industry experts, including Jim Gaston, owner of Gaston's White River Resort; Suzi Stephens, owner of Nibbles Catering; Dee Carroll, executive director of the Fort Smith Convention and Visitors Bureau; and Bill Bretches, general manager of the Northwest Arkansas Holiday Inn and Convention Center. The panel discussion is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Holiday Inn and convention center in Springdale.

The hospitality career fair is being held in conjunction with the seventh-annual Arkansas Hospitality Spring Trade Exposition and awards banquet.
