Focusing on the Berkshires' hospitality sector

The Berkshires are widely known as a tourist destination for wellness, spas, nature and the arts. The greater hospitality landscape includes hotels and inns, restaurants and food service enterprises, recreation and attractions, and other supporting industries that attract visitors who spend resources in Berkshire County. Berkshire Community College is dedicated to educating the next generation of hospitality workers that will establish the Berkshires as an area known for high-quality service and experiences.
