As a representative of EUHT StPOL, Dr. Eva Canaleta, academic director of the center, also attended the EUHOFA Congress.
Through five presentations given by professionals from the sector, the congress focused on how to reach Generation Z, current hospitality management students and future professionals in this industry. During the four days of the event, the participants worked together to find new tools that would guarantee the highest educational quality for graduates in their university centers.
