THE CHALLENGES OF DIGITAL WORLD
On Wednesday, October 17, the jubilee 10th annual international scientific conference on Hospitality, Tourism and Education (HTE 2018) was held at the Institute of Hospitality Management in Prague.
This jubilee year was dedicated to the challenges of the digital world for hotels and tourism. In the plenary part of the conference and during the subsequent panel discussion, representatives of such companies as Bookassist CR, Expedia.com, O2 Czech Republic, Seznam.cz, IBM Czech Republic, CPI hotels, MyStay, Virtual-zoom and others presented their contributions. The current trends and applications of modern information and communication technologies in the hotel and tourism industry were discussed.
The afternoon professional sections focused on information systems in the hotel industry, economy and finance in the digital world, and information technology applications in human resources management. Among other parts of the conference, a “delicious” diversification was a workshop focused on identifying the differences and characteristics of selected traditional dishes of Bohemia and Moravia.
The conference was attended by about 200 people from both the practical and academic spheres. The fact that the discussion at the IHM was held in warm and pleasant atmosphere on that day and lasted until late at night was just one more sign of the professional and social contribution of the event.
Participants' professional contributions are available in the Conference Proceedings Collection – see e-mail below.
