As part of a diverse program, participants were able to attend presentations on topics such as stays abroad, the IB Faculty Buddy Program and the Global Career Platform "Highered". This year's keynote was given by Sabrina Dick, IBIS Alumna and Human Resources Director SAP Central and Eastern Europe, with personal insights on the topic "Every Crisis brings Opportunity for those who see it". In addition, numerous information and country stands offered the opportunity to learn more about individual countries and cultures, such as the Arab region, Ukraine, South America, Turkey, Finland, Francophone countries and many more. In addition to the offer of country-specific, culinary specialties, there was also music typical of the country. One could also learn the typical dance steps of the respective culture.

Students of the TM specialization Tour Operations at the RTK Dialogue Days in Turkey

As part of the TM focus "Tour Operator Management" with Prof. Dr. Simon Fauser, 14 students visited this year's RTK Dialogue Days on the Turkish Riviera from April 28 to May 1. After almost two years of pandemic, an exchange among tourism professionals could take place in presence for the first time again. 

Thomas Bösl, Managing Director of rtk-raiffeisen Touristik, opened the Dialogue Days 2022 with an impressive welcome speech, followed by discussion rounds and presentations such as "End of the crisis or crisis without end - the industry after two years of pandemic" or also "Life Circle & Touch Points on the Customer Journey through Artificial Intelligence" to present the current situation of the industry and its future prospects. The focus of the event was on the presentation of a new sales platform "meinreisebüro24" and that of the virtual travel agent "Toni". In addition, other exciting topics were discussed in the areas of cruise tourism and emotional storytelling in travel sales. The "young tourism professionals of the future" were also directly addressed and motivated to embrace the potential of the tourism industries and to take advantage of their diverse career opportunities.  

The students would like to thank the organizer and Prof. Dr. Fauser for this outstanding opportunity to participate.
