THE-ICE 2nd IPoE Forum 2006

Internationalisation of Tourism and Hospitality Education

November, 2006

Hosted at Conrad Jupiter’s Casino, Gold Coast, Australia

THE-ICE IPoE (International Panel of Experts) Forums were established to offer a series of high-level events focusing on current strategic issues facing tourism, hospitality and events (TH&E) education, as well as extensive networking opportunities. The events are open to members and non-members of THE-ICE, and feature a series of invited presentation panel sessions by leading tourism and hospitality educators and industry experts within the region and internationally.

The focus of the second International Panel of Experts Forum was on presenting a pragmatic and progressive view on the internationalisation of tourism, hospitality and event education. With a significant perspective from the Asia-Pacific region, the forum addressed the changing needs of students, institutions and industry, and investigated the future role of international partnerships, quality assurance, and branding in the context of increasingly fast-paced global change.

Invited speakers included Professor Marion Joppe, University of Guelph, Canada; Dr Eva Werner, IMC Krems, Austria; Dr Jutamus W, Assumption University, Thailand; Wayne Crosby, William Angliss Institute of TAFE, Australia; Singh Bhuie, India; Professor Huimin Gu, Beijing Intl’ Studies University, China; and Dr Betty Leask, University of South Australia.
