The GCC hospitality industry is expected to grow at an annual rate of 9.5% to US$ 35.9 billion by 2018 compared to the US$ 22.8 billion in 2013. This level of growth is unique in the world and the pressure is on for the industry to hire talent.

“Glion is very excited to be part of the Gulf Education Conference for the fourth consecutive year. We have a very strong relationship with the industry in the region and particularly in the GCC where the industry is growing at a tremendous annual rate. With many of our alumni already working in the region and our growing network of educational partnerships in the GCC, we are proud to have helped companies lead this growth,” says Judy Hou, CEO Glion Institute of Higher Education.

Industry experts and Glion Faculty, Mary Farmer and Henri Kuokkanen will be presenting on topics that are of vital importance to the industry in the region. Mary Farmer is the Director of Glion Online Programs for Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland and a pioneer in online and distance learning. She will be addressing the trend towards applied online learning as a means of facilitating professional development and institutional strengthening in the Gulf Region and worldwide.

Henri Kuokkanen is a full-time Research Fellow at Glion Graduate School, where he also teaches revenue management and corporate social responsibility. He will be speaking on industry-education partnerships and developing graduate skills through commissioned research.

The presentation will share experiences from these projects, providing insights into how such partnerships can help in developing well equipped and trained people for the large projects the Gulf region is engaging in.
