The FUTURE HOTELIERS SUMMIT 2018 in Beijing
Between 10.9 to 10.12 in 2018 , I went to Beijing to attend the ‘Future Hoteliers Summit’ as one of the representatives of our school. I have gained a lot of experience to share with you.
What is FHS?
The FHS is the Asian arm of the Young Hoteliers Summit Global which is a Global nonprofit organization founded in 2010 by the Lausanne Hotel management institute in Switzerland. It is founded by the Beijing hospitality institute , it is the only designated partner of the hospitality industry youth leaders' summit in Asia, hosting the annual Asian hospitality industry youth leaders' summit.
Beijing hospitality institute
This school has only one major which is the hotel management, so the students can learn the very professional knowledge. At the same time, the school has a four-star hotel for teaching, which includes a banquet hall, lobby bar, western restaurant, Chinese restaurant, cafe and bar. The operation of the whole hotel is basically the responsibility of the students，including employees in every position, even the chef. That's part of their course just like the internship in their hotel. What amazed me most is that the meeting was all organized by their students. More than 30 institutions attended the conference. Including the Macau University of Science and Technology, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and many other famous schools in Asia.
