We're delighted to share that our Founder & CEO, Dilip Puri and Benoit-Etienne Domenget, CEO, Sommet Education, announced future development plans for the India region.
Among the plans is the much-awaited expansion of our campus, which has started, and will be complete by early 2022. The additional 25,000 sq. ft we’re building will include new classrooms, training kitchens and student experience areas, and will take up the capacity of the campus to over 500 students. We’re also evaluating opportunities for a second campus to be located in Mumbai, Bengaluru, or Hyderabad, and for launching a network of École Ducasse studios across India.
This was Benoit-Etienne's first visit to the ISH campus after the partnership between Sommet Education and Indian School of Hospitality took place earlier this year, which introduced the globally renowned institutes École Ducasse and Les Roches to India. During his visit, Benoit-Etienne experienced ISH hospitality, toured our campus, and interacted with students, faculty and teams. We also hosted an event to celebrate the partnership which was attended by industry leaders.
