Tourism and Hospitality education promotion at the Matka18 Travel fair 18.–21.1.2018

Tourism is still one of the fastest growing industries in the world. UN's tourism organization UNWTO has estimated one-night and longer journeys to increase to 1.8 billion by 2030. Businesses in the tourism sector are set up at a record rate, so new professionals in tourism and hospitality are desperately needed.

In addition to the restaurant and hotel sector, education is offered in the tourism sector, which provides a wide range of job opportunities both in Finland and internationally. In the capital area, tourism and hospitality education is offered by Universities of Applied Sciences Haaga-Helia and Laurea. After an UAS degree, there is an opportunity to continue with a Master’s degree, which allows for working in higher managerial positions.

For the first time at Matka Travel fair, Haaga-Helia and Laurea join forces to promote tourism education, our stand location is 6s71. The stand is mainly designed and activities organized by students. There is information about education but also lots of fun activities. On the stand one can get to know students, already graduated professionals and participate in a raffle.

Please follow the Facebook event page “Travel to your future -Restonomikoulutus esillä Matkamessuilla” https://www.facebook.com/events/154229928634710/ to get recent updates.
