Congratulating the conference and operational services team, Julie Barker, the university’s Director of Residential and Hospitality Services, said: “The teams collaborate closely with the university’s School of Sport and Service Management giving students an opportunity to work with real business customers and apply their studies to commercial events. We’re delighted that everyone involved has been recognised for the fantastic service they deliver to delegates.”
