Congratulations to the Ontario Hostelry Institute’s 2019 Top 30 Under 30. We were so proud to have been able to celebrate their accomplishments at the Award Ceremony which was held in George Brown College’s Culinary Centre’s Atrium with their families, sponsors and Top 30 Under 30 alumni. The George Brown Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts has been a proud Venue Sponsor for this event since the beginning in 2006. We would like to take this opportunity to not only thank GBC Centre for Hospitality and Culinary Arts but also to our long-time supporters of the Ontario Hostelry Institute, ESKA water for their donation of the still and sparkling water for the event.

This year we would also like to thank Andrew Peller Limited for their donation of wine and to Steam Whistle for joining us once again as our beer sponsor. We would also like to thank Liana Carniello for joining us on this special occasion to speak to our incoming Top 30 Under 30 awardees and to our guests. Liana was one of the first Top 30 Under 30 awardees selected in 2006. She is presently the Director of Human Resources at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel and is also a member of the Top 30 under 30 Selection team amongst her many other commitments.
