In conversation with Mr. Satish Kamath (Institute convenor) about ICTEM, here’s what he said.
Bombay Caterers Association (BCA) has undertaken a mission to train employers & caterers to reach levels of certified standardization.
Due to the lack of formal training and standards in the industry, and a huge gap between the demand and supply of skilled labourers, BCA members had always faced a need of urgent skill training during their events. The Management of BCA felt the need for an educational institute wherein they would train their staff members and upkeep them with the new techniques and technologies. That’s why, BCA decided to impart education for both industries at a single place and give new career opportunities to the upcoming youth and bring out new Entrepreneurs who are experts in catering as well as Event Management, concludes Kamath.
To set the Certified Standards concerning various processes and procedures in the Catering & Event Industry, to help the industry set its New Benchmarks which would help to analyse, review and upkeep itself with the changes on the global platform.”
