VIU students tops in tourism

A team of Vancouver Island University hospitality management students won first place in the hotels degree category at the sixth annual LinkBC Student Case Competition at the HOST 2012 Tourism and Hospitality Industry Conference in Vancouver.

Students had five hours to create presentations on one of two themes – solving the projected tourism human resources labour shortage by 10 per cent, or creating innovative packages for hotel properties in B.C.

Winning VIU members included Trevor Rinn, Isabel Thomas, Katelyn Querin and Cesar Barros-Suarez.
