Ever since its origins, the objective of the AEHT has been, and still is, to give the students the opportunity to participate in the competitions which take place each year. For the organisers this involves the considerable task of preparing the contests, under the supervision of the Head Judges. Each judge in his or her section supervises the content and the running of the contests. Sometimes the competitions are run in the host hotel school. This time all the contests were held in the premises of the Kursaal, resulting in specific constraints as regards the culinary arts contests, which were particularly difficult to run.
