Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s reception ceremony hosted at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai saw the students of DICE School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts as a part of the operations team.
A few days before the coveted reception, DICE hosted a Roundtable Discussion with General Managers of leading hotels across Mumbai. Impressed by the students’ impeccable service and hospitality, Mr. Puneet Singh (GM, Grand Hyatt Mumbai) offered the students an opportunity to be a part of the operations team at the most illustrious wedding reception of the Hindi Film Industry.
This was one of the first few experiences where students could deliver and translate their classroom learnings into real-life scenarios. With over 1200 varied guests, students experienced the different facets of event management on a first-hand basis and the preparation that is required prior to the celebration.
This historic reception was an eye opener for the students in terms of the background preparation that a large scale event requires and the meticulous execution that supports it.
