Education, training takes spotlight at Global 2014 & 11th ATF

THE Global Tourism & Hospitality Conference and Asia Tourism Forum (Global 2014 & 11th ATF) will be held in Hong Kong on May 18-20 this year, with the theme Charting the New Path: Innovations in Tourism and Hospitality – Innovations ∙ Research ∙ Education.

Jointly organised by the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and Taylor & Francis Group, the conference will be held at Hotel Icon, the state-of-the-art teaching and research hotel built for the SHTM by PolyU.

The conference is a chance for industry academics, policy makers, thought leaders, researchers, industry professionals and students to interact, and exchange views and research findings on Asian and international tourism and hospitality.

A highlight of the conference is the Special Panel Session on Education and Training, which will see educators weigh in on topics related to tourism and hospitality education. Subsequent discussions and a Q&A session with the panel will provide delegates more insights.
