The-ICE 2013 Panel of Experts Forum

THE-ICE 2013 Panel of Experts Forum to be hosted by BMIHMS, Sydney-Australia

11 September 2012

Established in 2005, THE-ICE (The International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education) International Panels of Experts’ Forum (IPoE) focuses on the strategic issues facing tourism, hospitality, events and culinary arts education. The forum provides an outstanding opportunity for global industry leaders and academic experts to meet, present their views and develop collaborative strategies. In 2013 the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) will host this event at its Sydney campus.

The theme of the 2013 forum is ‘Industry Teaching Educators: A Global Perspective’. It’s particularly fitting that BMIHMS, who was ranked the Number 1 International Hotel Management School in Asia Pacific and Australia (TNS 2010), and whose education model is developed through industry partnerships has been chosen as the host institution for this forum.

The forum is themed to create an opportunity to ensure educators meet industry needs. With specific topics such as ‘What the industry really needs from Travel and Hospitality Education?’,  ‘Educating and Engaging the Connected Generation’ and ‘Global Industry Demands Requiring Different Educational Approach’ this forum will provide the perfect platform for industry to work closely with educators and prepare the graduates they require in the future.

Final dates in October 2013 to be confirmed
