WHO: Tourism Education Alliance of the Maritimes (TEAM) began in 2014 with a vision to invest in the next generation of Tourism & Hospitality Management professionals in Atlantic Canada. Members of our industry have come together to drive TEAM’s strategic direction. TEAM is a legally established independent Nova Scotia not-for-profit society.
WHY: The strength and viability of our tourism and hospitality management sector is fundamental to the health and prosperity of Atlantic Canada. Together, we are investing in the future of our next great leaders and their contributions to our region.
HOW: This year’s event, ‘Kickin It Country in the Maritimes’, in support of Mount Saint Vincent University’s Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management Program, will take place on Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 6:00 pm at Pier 21. We anticipate this event will bring together 300+ industry professionals from tourism and hospitality management and the broader community and will provide the opportunity to network with over 40+ current Mount Tourism & Hospitality Management students and future leaders. Funds raised are used for program enhancements, improving program resources, and supporting students to attend annual volunteer and educational tours. Mount Saint Vincent University prides itself on experiential learning in the classroom and through partnerships across multiple sectors. These initiatives not only advance tourism education and talent, but also invest in the success of the sector here in Atlantic Canada.
