This internship offers a fantastic opportunity to showcase their skills while managing a hospitality team at The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. As a Hospitality Manager for the Pebble Beach Special Event Management Team (SEMT), students work directly with Pebble Beach representatives to manage, plan, coordinate, and oversee hospitality areas at the finest exhibition of show cars in the world.

Prerequisites: This opportunity is an internship and, if selected, students must enroll in BUS 498 for the Fall 2023 semester. Students must be Juniors or Seniors in fall 2023 and be selected by the Pebble Beach Staff and Special Event Management Committee. Priority is given to SHM majors.

The Event

Since 1950, Pebble Beach has been host to what is quite simply the finest exhibition of show cars in the world. The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance - held each August on the 18th Fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links - is an annual gathering of rare and antique automobiles, international automotive luminaries, and motorcar enthusiasts from around the globe. It is an event of dazzling elegance, appropriately held at a resort famous for both beauty and refinement. Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, this event has grown into the top-ranking collector car competition in the world. The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles are judged for their historical accuracy, technical merit, and style.

It is truly exciting that California State University Monterey Bay has the opportunity to participate in this incredible event. We are looking for some of CSUMB’s most responsible, enthusiastic, and professional students to join the Special Event Management Team.
