According to the brief of the project, students were asked to design a presentation, using the latest IT technology and provide cutting-edge information systems to enhance an already existing system or create a new one. Students were divided into 14 groups and worked systematically towards the completion of the project.

The judges, Ms Anastasia Kartsoni, Sales & Banquet Manager at Lazart Hotel and Mr. Alexandros Karapatoglou, Co-founder of the The Caravan Bed & Breakfast, were impressed by our students’ creativity, ideas and professional approach. Hotel managers were not only asked to judge the best pitched presentations but to give feedback based on their own experience, enabling students to get first-hand knowledge of hotel operations inside and out.
