The upcoming Shanghai World Expo running from May to October 2010 will bring unprecedented international attention to Shanghai and its environs – and a boom in the Meetings, Incentive, Conventions, and Exhibitions business. With new hotels and venues coming on stream to accommodate the influx, the hospitality industry faces the daunting task of finding sufficient qualified staff to run its establishments.

To help the industry meet this challenge, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s School of Hotel & Tourism Management and Fudan University’s Center for Forum Studies will jointly hold a two-day Hotel and Convention Management Seminar designed to address the key issues facing the industry and the management expertise required for the Shanghai World Expo and beyond.
