Welcome to the Hospitality and Event Planning Network, a career and relationship building newsletter network for all who work in the hospitality and event planning industries, published by Sonja Johnson. The objective of this network is to build relationships and help each other with career issues and other professional and personal challenges.

If you are sending a job opportunity, please include the title, organization, and location, as well as a brief description/link/contact information. We also like to hear if you got a job as a result of this network!
