Ever wondered what it takes to manage one of the world's most popular tourist attractions? Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear Disney speakers lift the veil on the magic behind Disneyland® Paris.

The Disney speakers will provide your students with real-life case studies on customer service, marketing and careers in travel & tourism. The live speakers will also offer a fascinating insight into key trends in the travel and tourism sector, meaning each student will leave the conference with useful and relevant information that will assist their classroom studies — they'll even have the chance to ask questions and discuss specific subjects with the speakers.

Meet the speakers

  • Tom Nelson, Senior Digital & Ecommerce Manager, The Walt Disney Company – how Disney uses digital marketing to engage customers to consider a Disney holiday
  • Lee Ainsworth, The Institute of Travel & Tourism's Future You scheme - Gateways into the travel industry and future career progression tips. 
  • Jane Batty, Guest Relations Manager at Disneyland Paris – delivering excellent customer service
  • Craig Busby, lecturer in Travel & Tourism – will facilitate the event and summarise topics covered by the speakers to draw links to the curriculum

After the convention, students will head to the parks to experience Disney’s unique brand of customer experience and will be tasked with viewing the park through an analytical lens by completing a choice of business assignments relating directly to the business of Disneyland Paris.

The learning doesn't stop when your trip is over! We've teamed up with Travel & Tourism tutor Craig Busby to offer an exclusive 10-week Marketing Module to teach your students back at college, which uses their experience at Disneyland® Paris to contextualise their studies.

Read the key takeaways from the last Travel & Tourism Student Convention and why you want to bring your students in 2025.
