EuroCHRIE2021 takes place in Aalborg, Denmark in the Comwell ‘’Hvide Hus’’ Hotel from the 27th-30th of September 2021. EuroCHRIE brings together educators from hospitality & tourism management schools and universities into a global network in close co-operation with industry representatives.
The conference offers a worldwide and unique forum for attendees from industry and academia to actively exchange, share, and challenge state-of-the-art research and industrial case studies within the hospitality and tourism domain.
As representatives for the future of hospitality/tourism academia and industry we will make sure that students will be able to participate in the professional conference program as delegates. As conference organisers, we find it important that students will find inspiration from the conference to define their future career path. We expect that around 100 students within F&B, Hospitality and Tourism will be the core element in EuroCHRIE 2021.
