Löwenstrasse 16, 6004 Lucerne, Switzerland



THE-ICE annual IPoE Forums (International Panel of Experts) were established to offer a series of high-level events focusing on strategic issues facing tourism, hospitality and events (TH&E) education. Each IPoE Forum, open to members and non-members, has a highly focused theme, with leading experts from around the world who are invited to speak on issues surrounding TH&E education, accreditation, benchmarking and the development of Best Practice.

Our global network of institutions also engage in our BRS (Benchmarking Roundtable Series) workshop events. Each of these events is focused on a specific topic, and encourages the sharing of knowledge as it relates to the development of best-practice models. These events offer both educators and administrative staff from participating institutions an opportunity to gain insight into the practices of peer institutions, to learn about alternative and new approaches, to identify and develop best-practice models and to collectively identify solutions to common issues being faced.
