Numerous guests, among family members and personalities from politics, the association and the industry environment were assisting the graduation party.

You have to have the flair for trends and you have to inspire and surprise your guests, declared Bruno Lustenberger, Bord member from Gastrosuissse in his salute. With a view to the five-point plan launched by GastroSuisse to combat the shortage of skilled workers, Lustenberger motivated the recent graduates to continue their education and act as ambassadors for the next generation of the industry.
