President's Foreword - Season's greetings

AMFORHT Season's Greetings - meilleurs voeux
Dear AMFORHT Member,

As it is nearly time to celebrate Christmas ans New Year, it is a great pleasure for me to convey my greetings for a happy holiday season and my best wishes for an enjoyable and successful year in 2016.


After these past months full of activities, projects and meetings, the AMFORHT World Forum in Palma de Mallorca marked a milestone in the association’s life. 

- before the forum meetings, professional exchanges have been increasing with the use of our new brand platform "API" (AMFORHT Platform on Internet), in addition to your human permanent contacts:  liaising directly with new contacts is easier than ever! 

- during the forum, activities of the program among which more interactive conferences and speed-dating session helped to establish contacts among participants and to identify and develop business leads,

- during the forum again, opportunities, decisions and agreements have raised and you helped converting them into concrete actions between members and partners,

- within the Executive Board and regional representatives we have been consolidated our international coverage and strengthen our internal organisation.  

Gradually, every major world region will have its Vice-President, and each country will have its Delegate, with care being taken to ensure they are all active and committed officials.

All these gateways are very successful from the feedback we get and follow the same common goals and values:  the improvement of Education and Training in Tourism worldwide.

Congratulations for your achievement this year & thank you for sharing your knowledge, your projects and your business opportunities! 

As active members, be aware you are at the heart of a new dynamic network. Our wishes are that AMFORHT once again becomes a large, strong and influential association. Together we can achieve this aim!

Our policy of recruiting new members has been reinforced: to date, especially since the set-up of our innovative platform (API) and the permanent involvement of Hélène, as General Delegate and the current Board, we are receiving many new applications and Members recommandations, including some from prestigious origins.
To move forward on enlarging our network faster and reflect our commitment to worldwide influence in Tourism, a video pitch presenting AMFORHT has been created by our official partner FrapaDoc Productions.

Please enjoy and share it to your contacts and recommend AMFORHT to your networks!

Season’s Greetings!
Long live to AMFORHT, and to the Mexican 2016 World Forum ! We are already preparing it… programme to come soon…

Your President and on behalf of your Board
