Onsite Activations at #NPSI2022
During this year’s NPSI, we partnered with sponsors and exhibitors to offer fun on-site activations for our ProStart students, educators, and other attendees who traveled to Washington, DC from across the country. From the Coca-Cola ProStart Lounge, to the Business & Education Expo featuring ProStart scholarship schools, to free professional headshots for the students, and more, we offered experiences to showcase the vast opportunities that exist for students looking towards bright futures in restaurants and foodservice.
