King of Prussia, PA (March 26, 2021) – As the region’s vaccination rates increase, so does business to its restaurants and hotels. While this influx of business is much needed after an extremely difficult year, it highlights a new problem that is plaguing the hospitality sector across the country: A staffing shortage. King of Prussia District is addressing this issue by bringing together the hospitality community to host the Let’s Go KOP Hospitality Hiring Fair on Tuesday, May 4 from 10 AM – 4 PM at the Alloy King of Prussia – a DoubleTree by Hilton (301 W. Dekalb Pike, King of Prussia, PA 19406).

All participating businesses will offer on-site interviews at the hiring fair and many will be prepared to extend offers during the event.
