EuroCHRIE Conference 2017

Oct 23, 2017 to Oct 26, 2017

EuroCHRIE Annual Conference, 23-26 October 2017,
Radisson Blu Hotel, Nairobi – Kenya
Reach the Unreached, Touch the Untouched


On behalf of the conference organisers, Strathmore University, Saxion University of Applied Sciences and University College of Northern Denmark we are delighted to welcome you to the African continent for the 35th EuroCHRIE Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.

EuroCHRIE is the European federation of the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education (ICHRIE), a professional association for hospitality and tourism educators from all over the world.

For the first time, the EuroCHRIE family touches ground in Africa as it opens its arms to welcome African members! In order to reach out to the continent, the EuroCHRIE conference organisers offer a discounted conference fee for Africans.

The theme for the 2017 conference “Reach the unreached - touch the untouched” is chosen to symbolize the unexploited potential that the hospitality and tourism industry contains. It invites delegates, both from the academia and the industry, to explore our broadening base of member countries, to build bridges and develop or strengthen international collaboration in the EuroCHRIE family.  Furthermore, we aim to inspire the delegates to take on a new perspective on hospitality and tourism, a new cultural context, new research methodologies and research topics, and face business challenges and opportunities within the tourism and hospitality industry.

As value addition to the conference, we offer pre-conference workshops leading to international certification, such as:

  • STR Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics (CHIA) training session
  • Red Global Simulation
  • Hotel Business Acumen by Red Global
  • PhD/Early Career Workshop
