Kaveri Vij

2007 Graduate | Partner, Designer Events Inc.

It dates back to 2007 when the glorious journey began with Vedatya and after four successful years of completion, I worked as an Events Coordinator at Pullman Gurgaon Central Park.

Vedatya taught me not only hotel management but how to walk the wonderful journey called Life. The institute has bestowed the seeds in me which make me what I am today. The four years at Vedatya have been remarkable not only in terms of academics but my overall development as an individual. The professors are the backbone of the institute who go out of the way to make sure your goal is attained as if it was their own. I'm now an entrepreneur, managing my own events management company, Designer Events Inc. When words such as "Kaveri Well Done" echo into my ears now. My heart smiles and owes all of it to Vedatya.
