Faculty Travel to Athens, Greece, for the 5th Annual International Conference on Tourism and Hospitality Management

 

Sandy Kapoor and Belle Lopez presented their research titled, “Developing Teamwork Skills in Hospitality Management College Students” at the 5th Annual International Conference on Tourism and Hospitality Management in Athens, Greece, in June.

 

The conference was organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism of Greece. The aim of it was to provide an opportunity to academics and researchers, professionals of tourism, and people from all around the world, to meet, exchange ideas, and collaborate.

 

While abroad in Greece, Kapoor and Lopez were able to expose professionals and students from across the globe to The Collins College of Hospitality Management at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

 

“We were able to develop relationships with many colleagues teaching in hospitality management programs throughout the world,” says Kapoor. “Faculty and administrators from Hungary and Germany were especially interested in participating in joint research projects and coordinating faculty and student study abroad programs.”
