TOURISM FOR EVERYONE: THE INCLUSION AND HUMAN CAPITAL FOR REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

VIDEO of the past conference.

Collective monograph HERE

In cooperation with the EJF-Academy for Education and International Cooperation, the University College of Business in Prague would like to invite you to an international conference dedicated to disabled citizens in tourism (as passengers and employees) in order to contribute to further improvement in this area within the Czech Republic and Germany.

THIS PROFESSIONALLY INTERPRETED MEETING SEEKS TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: 

  • What opportunities do disabled visitors in DE/CZ have to use their leisure time? 
  • What possibilities are there to obtain information about stays suitable for disabled people in DE/CZ? 
  • What are the specific requirements of disabled people for their involvement in tourism? 
  • How do tourism entities (accommodation facilities, dining facilities, travel agencies, tourist information centers...) respond to these specific requirements in their destinations?

Another aim of the conference is to map and evaluate the barrier/barrier-free situation in selected destinations in the Czech Republic and Germany through field research, observation, the content analysis of documents and literary research. The issue of the disabled in tourism and their requirements will be simultaneously monitored. An integral part of the project is the issue of human resources in relation to the topic. Everyone somehow affected by or interested in the topic is invited. Send your papers for the conference in Czech, English or German by the deadline of 15 November 2019. The selected papers will be included in the peer-reviewed proceedings. Papers can only be definitively included in the proceedings after payment of the conference fee. The collection of papers will receive an ISBN and be submitted for review for indexing in scientific databases. The recommended length of the paper is 8 to 10 standard pages, including a bibliography (maximum 10 pages), and abstract of no more than 250 words.

    Adam KlavíkTourism Management

    I graduated with a bachelor's degree from the College of European and Regional Studies in České Budějovice and transferred to UCB in Prague to do my master's degree. Great choice – UCB is much more like a public school and the quality of lecturers is 100% better. For example, my teacher Mrs. Palatková is someone to know in tourism.

    Jan Šrámek

    At UCB, I learned to be independent and gained experience in the field. Wherever we entered student competitions, we walked away with awards. During my studies I became part of the organizational structure of several projects in tourism. I can't wait to start working full time.

    Petra Benešová

    I graduated from UCB, now I teach here. Much has changed over the years. The school is constantly moving forward, focusing more on gaining practice, the subjects are more professional and tightly focused. Although the competition on the market is huge, UCB is doing very well and I can heartily recommend it.

    Kristína Jíšová

    UCB is one of the few schools in the Czech Republic that really does offer experience. During our studies, we worked on projects where the results were then taken up by the National Monuments Institute. Many lectures were also given by external lecturers, so we learned how things really work in the world.

    She works as a Program Coordinator at Smaller Earth. In 2009, she did an internship in New York. She lived in England for three and a half years and worked for an Australian travel agency. Work never bothered Simona, so when she was given the chance to go to America to work as kitchen help, she didn't hesitate for a moment. She got experience, made new friends, and traveled around the United States with the money she earned. This opened the door to job opportunities in Spain and England. She's working today.

    He studied aviation theory at Oxford Aviation Academy. He completed his practical training in the Czech Republic and Poland. He holds a CPL/ME/IR pilot license. As a child, Jakub dreamed of becoming a pilot one day. He faced a twisting road to it and had to sacrifice a lot. He started off by studying Marketing Communication at the University of Finance and Administration in Prague, then moved to Airline Management at UCB. To save time and money on pilot training, he started his own company. Today he is within reach of his dream.
