AFEA "invests" in the education of the future meetings and travel experts! 

May 2019 has been a very “educational” month for AFEA with many presentations at various universities and colleges. AFEA team had the opportunity to present the dynamics of the Meetings Industry in Greece and worldwide to the Department of Tourism Studies of the University of Piraeus and a few days later to present the “Success Story” of AFEA at the Metropolitan College of Athens. On top of that, AFEA joined forces with HAPCO members and presented the objectives of HAPCO, the position of Conference Tourism in Greece and the stages and demands of organizing a conference at the students of BCA - Business College of Athens. 

The aim of this action is to enable students, future professionals, to become familiar with the field of congress tourism, which is constantly developing and "opening" the way for professional development.

The topics discussed and presented, focused on the meetings destination of Greece and its capabilities, the international meetings destinations and the ranking of Greece and Athens worldwide. Additionally, students had the opportunity to learn about the basic stages of the organization of a conference, the bidding process for a congress on an international level and the key elements of successful executives working in the field of meetings. The participation of the students exceeded expectations, with great optimism and enthusiasm about the future of the meetings and travel industry in our country!

Highlights of the topics presented during this 3-day interactive meeting, where  "Innovate or Die", "Critical Thinking" and "Positive Leadership".
The Conference’s theme was "Conference 5.0" following IAPCOs 50th birthday, which was celebrated throughout the event and especially during a magnificent Gala dinner. During their stay in Basel delegates had the chance to explore the city through the participation at the “IAPCO Fun Run & Walk”, as well as other afternoon activities which brought them to the highlight of the city.

 AFEA actively participated and contributed to the educational program of the IAPCO 2019 Meeting, by moderating an “Innovation” Session on 3d organ printing. The moderation was implemented by Sissi Lygnou, AFEA CEO.Last but not least, AFEA received the IAPCO recognition award for the joint collaboration with ERA & ERASMUS regarding the successful organization of the IAPCO EDGE Athens in 2017.
Looking forward to more inspiring educational activities of the Association as well as the next IAPCO 2020 Meeting in Vancouver

“Thinking, Feeling & Sensing” at the Annual AFEA Meeting

“Thinking, Feeling & Sensing” was the central subject of the 2019 Annual Meeting of AFEA Travel and Congress Services. The meeting was held on Saturday 9th February 2019 at the Radisson Blu Park Hotel with the active participation of the 49 team members and the management team. The venue was selected very carefully, as the Radisson Blu Park hotel and hotel group is known for its “Responsible Tourism” actions in relation to the environment and society, in line with the strategy followed and established by AFEA in the past few years. 

The main aim of the meeting was like, every other year, to review 2018 and present the strategy and planning for 2019 onwards. Presentations outlined by each different business unit of the company, education and networking, were key elements of this year’s meeting, and all team members were invited to reflect on their vision for the future of the company.  

The meeting was concluded with a very insightful seminar and workshop on the trending subject of “Mindfulness: Thinking with the Senses, Sensing with the Mind” presented by Olga Papatriantafillou, Mindfulness Teacher (MBSR) and Psychotherapist. 
After the completion of the annual meeting, the lunch was held at the hotel roof terrace restaurant, where also the traditional New Years’ Pitta (pie) Cutting took place.
