2nd Tourism Summer School
11 - 16 September 2011
Izmir, Turkey

Travel and Learn!

The 2011 Tourism Summer School will be held in Izmir, Turkey.

This is the 2nd Summer School after the 1st which took place in Chios Island last September. Students from 6 countries participated in the 1st Summer School (2010) where Professor Dimitrios Buhalis from Bournemouth University was invited as a guest speaker.

Rotation actually worked and this year’s summer school sails toward the other side of the Aegean Sea, İzmir (Turkey) just opposite Chios (Greece), located close to Cesme port on the Turkish coastline. The 2nd Tourism Summer School is organized by the Institute of EuroMed Affairs (IEMA) and supported by The Council of Europe and major strategic Partners.

An unforgettable 6-day experience is awaiting this year’s prospective attendees combining high quality academic courses, with a wide range of cultural and social activities in İzmir, historically also Smyrna, Turkey's third most populous city and the country's second largest port city after Istanbul (easily accessible by air and sea). Our effort is to bring the two Aegean coasts together with a unique educational tourism event that will attract participants from all over the world, in the centre of the Aegean Archipelago amid the Mediterranean Sea.

The 2011 programme is geared toward the development of key analytical skills and strategic competencies applied to the tourism sector, specially planned in accordance with the international tourism market needs and based on international curricula. Team-based workshops and multidisciplinary Courses, such as Introduction to Marketing and Tourism, Innovation and ICTs, Tourism Strategy and Destination Branding all of which are taught in English, intend to stimulate thought and cultivate intellectual development in an international environment, offering students the opportunity to share knowledge, build on mutual understanding and cooperate on travel and tourism destination case studies.

Summer School's attendees consist of Students, Undergraduates and Postgraduates in Tourism and Social Sciences, Employers and Self-employed in tourism companies, as well as professionals in related sectors who wish to extend and update their knowledge, and of course people fully inspired by tourism.

Registration fee per participant does not exceed
- 150 euros for participation without accommodation (Free access to all conference sessions)
- 475 euros (for early-bird registration, June 15th respectively)
- 550 euros (deadline August 31st)

that includes accommodation, daily breakfast and lunch, and daily visits to local attractions and enterprises. And it includes access to all sessions, participation to Summer School, welcome reception, Summer School proceedings, visit to local attractions and firms.

Definitely it is an excellent “travel and learn” experience, with unbeatable packages for friends and families that come along! All packages available here.

Aegean coastline and the Mediterranean is the perfect setting to make you familiar with a vibrant “tourism-education-holiday” experience where lectures, trips and networking will be intermixed with the cultural local lifestyle.

Mark your calendars, get prepared and we will all be there to address you a warm welcome to Izmir both in Greek and in Turkish, “Kalos Orisate” and “Hoşgeldiniz”!
