2018 Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association Convention
This year we are proud to announce our presence at the Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association Convention. Gecko Hospitality has a long standing with many groups and associations across North America, and this adds one more!
One of our top recruiters, Michael Chamberlain-Torres, had the pleasure of representing Gecko Hospitality this year and has done a phenomenal job! Having the ability to network, learn best practices and engage in meaningful discussions on critical issues affecting our industry, has been positive for Gecko Hospitality in many ways. With over 35 vendors, Gecko Hospitality was able to showcase our recruiting services to the largest companies in the Restaurant & Hospitality industry.
