Hosted by Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences, EuroCHRIE 2022 will be centred on the future of education and industries in the hospitality & tourism, events management and culinary arts sectors. Among other topics, the conference’s presentations, symposiums and workshops will discuss data security, robotics, self-service, artificial intelligence, block-chain, social innovation and the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will take place at the Aventus Building, in Apeldoorn, but key activities will also be livestreamed.
Wittenborg’s CEO, Maggie Feng, who is also EuroCHRIE’s Director of Conferences, pointed out that the last time this major event was held in the Netherlands was in 2010, adding that Wittenborg is proud to bring it back to the country in 2022 for its 38th edition. “It will be an amazing opportunity for hospitality and tourism researchers, educators and students based in the Netherlands. They will have the chance to get to know more about their colleagues and to shine through this international platform, showing innovative solutions and approaches to current topics. EuroCHRIE is a very inclusive organisation and a great place for researchers to get started on their careers,” she said.
