According to the Kazakh Tourism NC, educational center preparing professionals in the field of tourism will open in Kazakhstan in the nearest future! This center will be based on the practice of the world's best schools for hospitality and tourism in Switzerland - 'Les Roches' and 'SHL', as well as the United Nations World Tourism Organization Academy (UNWTO Academy). This was announced yesterday by the Chairman of the Board of the Kazakh Tourism NC - Yerzhan Yerkinbaev on his Instagram account.
He mentioned that training programs will cover all directions of the industry: hotel service, marketing, and sales in tourism, gastronomy, tour guides training, organization of excursions and more.
According to Mr. Yerkinbaev, Kazakhstan needs to find its highlight and develop exactly in this direction. For example, Georgia, which is famous for its hospitality, wine, and cuisine, develops gastronomic tourism, and our country could promote eco-tourism or the historic Great Silk Road. In discovering the unique ways of developing the industry, we will be assisted by the UNWTO Academy, which will become a research and analytical center, in order to study the attractiveness of Kazakhstan's unique features for tourism development
