World VIUPoints Speaker Series: Back to Integrity – The Revival of Traditional Values

The World Leisure Centre of Excellence at VIU (WLCE at VIU) invites you to ourWorld VIUPoints Speaker Series presented by Aurelia Kogler, on the topic of Back to Integrity – The Revival of Traditional Values. The presentation will take place on Friday Oct 28th, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Building 200-Room 203.

Long gone are the days of unsustainable “bigger, better, faster, more” ideas in tourism and leisure product development. In the last few years, the pendulum seems to swing back as people are increasingly looking for more authentic experiences. Join us and observe how people embrace the new down-to–earth approach of “smaller, slower, less” in Austria and Switzerland.
