Ionian Dtour webinars

The Department of Tourism of the Ionian University, in the context of training and optimal preparation of the students towards the new challenges and requirements of the increasingly competitive environment, in which tourism businesses operate both at a domestic and international level, organizes distance lectures with the participation of guest speakers from the tourism sector.

Purpose

The main purpose of the Ionian Dtour Webinars is twofold: at first, they seek to enrich the knowledge of the students of the Department of Tourism. Secondly, they seek to prepare the students for the high demands of the labour market, in order to reach professional success.

Through the lectures/speeches, they will offer in-depth knowledge and understanding regarding the mechanisms and factors governing the multidimensional and constantly evolving field of tourism industry. Guest speakers may include:

  • Executives of private tourism units and businesses
