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!
