Travel and Tourism Exhibition opens a gateway to the world at Westminster Kingsway College
11 March 2011
An international carnival came to Westminster Kingsway College this week when students from both the Victoria and King’s Cross Centres hosted their annual Travel & Tourism Exhibition.
Ten countries from around the world were represented at the event, each highlighting national costumes, historical and political culture and national dishes, which the Hospitality students sourced and produced.
Visitors to the event included local school students, London residents and invited guests. They were treated to belly dancing performances, an American hip hop showcase, fashion show and interactive quiz ‘The Passport Challenge’.
Jeremy Arias, Travel & Tourism student (pictured below), said: “I organised the Columbian stand and enjoyed preparing for it. The practical nature of the course has meant I have grown in confidence. I know I have a lot of different career options now!”
Lorraine Hewett, Travel & Tourism Programme Manager at Westminster Kingsway College, said: “The exhibition gives the students a chance to put into practice so many aspects of what they have learnt in class, from the displays and promotional literature they designed to event planning and organisation. We have also been raising money for the BBC Wildlife Fund through a raffle to show our support for responsible tourism and we are glad that everyone is having a good time.”
