Welcome Letter by President Endicott
Dear Colleagues and Students,
It is a great honor to host the 18th Asia Pacific Forum for Graduate Students Research in Tour-ism (APF) from 21 to 23 June 2019 at Woosong University in Daejeon, South Korea.
Since launching “Global Initiative” over a decade ago, Woosong University and Sol International School (SIS) have demonstrated excellence in innovation and creativity. SIS offers specialized programs featuring English instruction and opportunities to experience a wide variety of ex-change and dual degree programs throughout the world in important fields including hospitality and tourism.
It is a great pleasure for us at Woosong and SIS to host and co-organize this interesting confer-ence and make sure that it will serve the needs of the Korean and international academic com-munities devoted to furthering the field of tourism and hospitality. The conference is co-organized with the School of Hotel and Tourism Management at Hong Kong Polytechnic Uni-versity, a leading academic and research institution in this field.
Daejeon is the largest R&D and education center in South Korea and is considered by many as the most liveable city in the country. We are committed to organizing a successful conference and providing unique experiences to all the participants.
I look forward to welcoming you all in person at APF 2019, which is expected to be highly val-ued and appreciated.
John E. Endicott, President Woosong University
