Dr. MARIA WIESINGER
EUHOFA INTERNATIONAL PRESIDENT
Dear EUHOFA Family,
In November 2018 our annual autumn congress will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland.
In 2018 Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne celebrates 125 years in the hospitality world and it is a great honour that the EUHOFA family will be invited to be part of the celebration.
This is the fourth time in the history of EUHOFA International that Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL) will invite the EUHOFA family to experience Swiss as well as EHL hospitality paired with a top level academic program. All of us know of the excellent education provided at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, and are aware of the outstanding premises for students as well as the EHL graduates who work worldwide in the hospitality industry.
The 57th EUHOFA International Congress will be held on the theme of “125 years in the hospitality world: The challenges ahead”. It is a promising theme and I know that the congress organizing team have worked hard to put together a high-standard congress program including relevant academic input, in addition to discussion and workshop sessions and enough time to share personal experiences and to enjoy Swiss hospitality. Should you wish to know more about digital and continuous education, artificial intelligence and the design and architecture part of emotional soft skills, these will be the topics discussed during the academic sessions. Both the partner program and the cultural program will offer the chance to visit a variety of the attractions which Switzerland has to offer and is famous for. Attending the congress will also give you the opportunity to meet your international colleagues and friends and to strengthen your network.
The 125th anniversary of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne is something that should not be missed. I urge you to sign up and reserve the date.
Do join us, and I look forward to meeting you from 14th - 18th November 2018 in Lausanne.
With warmest regards,
Prof. MICHEL ROCHAT
