The World AMFORHT Forum has closed in Luxembourg. A fascinating 22nd edition enthusiastically attended by more than 100 participants from 22 countries.
From 21 to 23 March last, the World Association for Hospitality and Tourism Education and Training, AMFORHT, organised its 22nd World Forum in Luxembourg.
Supported by the United Nations, the non-governmental organisation AMFORHT organised this international event in collaboration with BBI Luxembourg – School of International Hotels & Tourism Business – and in close partnership with the AccorHotels Group, the premier European hotel group and main sponsor of the event.
Officially opened by Mr Louis Robert, President of BBI Luxembourg, the event revolving around the ambitious theme of “Transform our world by education: cooperation, education and development” brought together more than 100 participants from 22 different countries in the setting of the Novotel-Sofitel Europe on the Kirchberg.
Enhanced by the presence of numerous personalities and ministerial delegations from several countries as well as that of Mme Francine Closener, Secretary of State for the Economy and Mr Francesco Frangialli, Honorary Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (OMT-UNWTO), this 22nd Forum was particularly rich in exchanges, round tables, seminars and discoveries.
Among the event’s many highlights, participants especially enjoyed the guided tour of the BBI Luxembourg campus, the International Food Festival in Wiltz and the fantastic gala dinner organized at the Sofitel Luxembourg, not forgetting the overall quality of the entire organization.
This 22nd World AMFORHT Forum was also an opportunity to renew the election of Philippe François as President of AMFORHT, to elect Dr. Stéphane Demaeght (Master Dean of BBI Luxembourg) as Vice-President, and to elect 32 members of the Board of Governors and 5 members of the Executive Board.
The next edition of the “World Forum”, celebrating 50 years of AMFORHT, will be held in Paris.
