THE-ICE 3rd IPoE Forum 2008

THE-ICE 3rd IPoE Forum 2008

Developing and delivering industry-relevant education and research

May 2008

Proudly hosted by the Australian School of Tourism and Hotel Management, Perth, 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 3rd International Panel of Experts Forum was held in conjunction with hosting the 6th Asia-Pacific (APacCHRIE) Conference in Perth in May 2008.

The format offered a wider diversity of presentation formats in addition to the traditional Panel of Experts sessions which have been a trademark of past Forum events. The event, organised by THE-ICE and hosted by ASTHM, also included an industry breakfast, and an international Education Fair.

Invited speakers included Dr George Brown, Think Education Group, Australia; Vik Nair, Taylor’s University College, Malaysia; Dr Hanquin Zhang, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, SAR-China; and Fritz Gubler, Founder, Blue Mountains Hotel School, Australia.
