Kerava Tourism students at the Matka Fair 2011

This year again Kerava Tourism students supported tourism experts in different fields at the Nordic Travel Fair between 20. -23.1.2011 at the Helsinki Fair Centre which attracted around 84 000 visitors.

Eight Laurea students were assisting in the Best of Helsinki Awards on-line competition. Forex, one of Laurea’s partners, had recruited several students. Two Nepalese tourism students had the opportunity to represent their own country in the Nepal Tourism Board –stand. Also the other ‎students were helping in various stands such as Hispania and EF among others.

As in the past, this year the students expanded their networks and gained valuable customer service and event management experience. Many students found the internship places as well summer jobs during the fair.

It was also delightful to meet Laurea tourism graduates that have found their place in various tourism companies.
