European Mise en Place Cup

The EMCup is the annual competition amongst the best European Hotel Management Schools and took place in Maastricht on February 16th & February 17th 2020. The competition, an initiative of HotelloTOP and co-creators Mise en Place & HRC International, was founded in 2009.



The EMCup is aimed at ‘I-do-dare-students’, those who stand out from the crowd and show courage, entrepreneurship and a great level of commitment to the hospitality industry. It offers students the chance to make a difference with their vision and ideas, and challenges them to think out of the box about a real life topic.
