Message from Dean Kaye Chon

It is a great pleasure and an honour to extend to you a warm invitation to attend the 2019 APacCHRIE & EuroCHRIE cum 4th Global Tourism and Hospitality Conference, to be held in Hong Kong on 22-25 May at the state-of-the-art Hotel ICON, our groundbreaking teaching and research hotel.

 

Hosted by the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the 2019 Conference will be run entirely by SHTM undergraduate students from the Special Event Class. These talented students will form an organising committee to manage the Conference and put together an enriching programme for our international delegates, ensuring you an experience unlike any other.

 

This great historical event will take place in the very heart of where East meets West – Hong Kong – a dynamic and vibrant city connecting the world. The 2019 Conference is a game changer for the international community, showcasing East Meets West in Hospitality and Tourism Education, a place where ideas will shape the future of the hospitality and tourism industry.

 

The 2019 Conference will provide a wonderful platform for academics, industry leaders, journal editors, young scholars and researchers to define the future roadmap of the global hospitality and tourism sector. As the Founding Chairman of APacCHRIE, I look forward to the close collaboration of APacCHRIE and EuroCHRIE and the role both federations will continue to play in advancing hospitality and tourism education and research internationally.

 

The year 2019 is also a special year for all of us at the SHTM as it marks the 40th anniversary of our School. This is a time for us to look back with pride and forward in confidence. This is also a time for us to celebrate and celebrations will culminate in the 2019 Conference. I look forward to welcoming you to the Conference and to the celebrations.
