Last week the School of Tourism exhibited at the World Travel Market at the Excel Centre in London.
The School of Tourism was the only university that exhibited at the four day event and they showcased some of the exciting advances being made in tourism at Bournemouth University, as well showcasing their courses and business services that they offer.
The School of Tourism stand was officially opened by Professor Dimitrios Buhalis and Zoltan Somogyi Executive Director, Marcio Favilla Executive Director, Frederic Pierret Executive Director and Xu Jing Regional Director Asian and Pacific from UNWTO
As well as exhibiting, Bournemouth University’s School of Tourism staff held three free seminars across the four day conference.
Professor Dimitrios Buhalis hosted a BU Tourism Futures Forum and Dr Janet Dickenson hosted a debate on “Is the travel and tourism industry taking responsibility for reducing its greenhouse gas emissions?”
The School of Tourism also worked closely with the World Travel Market’s charity, Just a Drop at the exhibition and collected money for them on the stand.
The exhibition was a huge success for the School of Tourism and their stand was busy throughout the conference.
