It is gratifying to hear from past graduates, especially if they are carving out a career in international tourism. This morning, Samer got in touch to tell me about his work with Story Entertainment; a great name for a company that combines tourism with events. Samer graduated in 2014 with a BSc Honours degree in International Tourism Management. He worked with me, Lio, Andy and Clarisse at Cotehele House, the National Trust property on the Tamar, to pilot the initial project for our Research Masters degree in Travel Writing. The story for Samer’s first major travel event, though, unfolds in the very different climate of Jordan. With VIP treatment, guests will visit the Dead Sea and Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world and be taken in style to a two-day beach party at Agaba. It runs from 28th April to 3rd May 2016 so I am hoping he will send us some more news and photos.
Samer uses Facebook to promote and organise his special events; this one is at https://www.facebook.com/events/1561787654141440/
