As a part of the Sectorial Community at IE, this club has the opportunity to organize various events and activities that relate to the Tourism and Leisure Industry. The club has organized various panel discussions, conferences, seminars, networking events, etc. with professionals from this industry. This club in the past was managed by the IE Alumni and the IE students. Starting this year this club shall be split so that this part of the club is managed solely by the IE students.
In the future, the Club is planning to organize a couple of seminars and conferences for IE students focusing on the Hospitality and Travel Industry of Spain.
Earlier, the Club has been run majorly as a Spanish based club and by IE Alumni who have been organizing various events. We hope to introduce to this club, information and ideas that flow to the English speaking audience as well. There are huge opportunities in this sector and we believe that students at IE would benefit immensely from the club’s mission to serve the students at IE, and to build an awareness of the Tourism & Leisure Industry.
