Overview

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.

Speakers confirmed for 2023!

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.

See you there!
31 January–3 February 2023

We're excited to offer this event in partnership with our sister company COGO Travel, the specialists in educational student conferences and performing arts events at Disneyland® Paris.
