Quest Conference Center
We Know Meetings
At the core of Quest Conference Center’s business is great
hospitality. What is “Hospitality” you ask? Well its formal definition,
according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, is “The generous and friendly
treatment of visitors and guests: Hospitable treatment.” Many
businesses in the hospitality world would have plenty more to add to

Ohio State’s annual fundraising event has been titled
“The Big Dish” for about three years. This event was created for a few
key reasons. First and foremost, it is a fundraising event for the
hospitality major with specific initiatives in mind. Secondly, this
event is used as a powerful networking event for seniors and recent
graduates in the hospitality major. It is a great opportunity for
students to make connections with industry professionals, and also for
hospitality companies to interact with the future of hospitality.
Lastly, their goal is to create a course around this event for those
interested in event planning. The course would make “The Big Dish” a
completely student run event. This kind of hands on experience is
exactly what makes Ohio State’s Hospitality Management program a great
breeding ground for future hospitality employees.
