The ITB CHINA Education & Job Day is a dedicated day of the ITB CHINA Conference focusing on the exchange of educational knowledge and the promotion of career opportunities of current and future talents of the Chinese Travel Industry.
ITB CHINA Education & Job Day is comprised of two components, namely Education and Job.
Dr. Sun Yunlong, Vice Dean, Department of Tourism & Director, MTA office at Fudan University: “We live in a world of technological disruption, where traditions are being disintegrated and reshaped”. According to him “the tourism sector and its practitioners are no exceptions. So, we must redefine tourism education and talents. To that end, we should recognize the profound changes in the tourism industry and decide what is to rise and what is to wane. With ITB CHINA and its co-organizer Travel Daily China both being first-class platforms for travel-industry exchanges, I believe this creative connection between our education platforms and ITB China will surely bring about fantastic views on these questions. Looking forward to ITB CHINA 2018!”
Professor Kaye Chon, Dean and Chair Professor of the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Walter Kwok, Foundation Professor in International Hospitality Management, said: “With an exclusive focus on the Chinese travel market, ITB CHINA provides an exceptional platform on which a diverse range of destinations and industry sectors are presented to Chinese as well as international hospitality and tourism professionals. We at the SHTM see this as an excellent opportunity for an international educational institution such as ourselves and global industry executives to converge and discuss career-defining strategies and plans. This strategic collaboration is in keeping with our common interest in nurturing hospitality and tourism professionals to lead the industry into its future. Ranked among the world’s top hotel and tourism schools and based in the heart of the booming Asia-Pacific region, the SHTM is best placed to provide international education to meet the specific demands of a truly global industry.”
Here jobseekers can find all job offers from companies, establish immediate contact with personnel managers and even directly apply for jobs on the spot. Newcomers such as tourism related major students will have the chances to get first-hand news on career planning or further studies for experts at the conference.
