About Youth Conference 

The 6th APacCHRIE Youth Conference will be hosted by AUT University from June 11 to 12, 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand, with the theme of Hospitality and Tourism in a Greening World: Fresh ideas from future generations.


The Youth Conference will focus on various aspects of education, training and academic development for the hospitality and tourism industry in the context of a dynamic and challenging global environment. The Youth Conference will allow students with different cultural backgrounds to interact, discuss and exchange ideas, knowledge and practical skills.

Students will learn new ideas, business tactics and best practices from local senior executives, leading scholars, and business leaders by participating in the seminars and visiting leading hospitality related organisations in Auckland.


Students will be able to develop their leadership competencies and expand networks through group activities, interactive games, and discussions.


They will also be able to experience the local culture and combine learning and leisure through participation in local guided tours.
