International Teaching and Expertise Week of Tourism
2 – 4 April 2019
“Tourism is like a fire, you can cook your food on it, or it can burn your house down.”
– Asian proverb
As one of the world's fastest-growing and fastest-changing industries, tourism has an immense impact on numerous sectors of society: labor, culture, education, economy, and environment. Along with the positive outcomes, such as increasing incomes and intercultural awareness, global-level challenges concerning responsibility have arisen. Cultural, social and environmental challenges require a proactive and innovative mindset with the ability to forecast the future. How should we write the next chapter into this fascinating story?
During our event, you will have a great opportunity for networking with international tourism professionals and experts. The programme consists of different interesting academic activities.
