Educational and community-building study trips
Every year in the initial hotel training programmes, students go on a study trip (included in the tuition fees) to explore major tourist regions and meet the managers of the most prestigious establishments in Marseille, Barcelona, Deauville, Reims, Bordeaux, etc. For a unique experience, we invite you to dive into the heart of luxury, but this time as a customer.
Meeting the leaders in the luxury hotel and restaurant industry is one of the cornerstones of the Luxury Hotelschool training programme. It is through contact with these professionals and these enriching dialogues that students progress, forge a vision and build their career plans.
Here with Arnaud Lallement, 3-star Michelin chef at Assiette Champenoise, near Reims.
Study trip to Barcelona
Trip to Marseille
As a pioneer in the development and implementation of plans to control energy consumption, promote renewable energies and promote sustainable development as a whole, Marseille is a highly appropriate destination for this study trip.
This week-long stay in and around Marseille at the start of the school year is also an ideal opportunity to get to know each other better.
Activities include a meeting with members of Naturoscope; a voyage of discovery to the Frioul Islands, with a focus on flora and a visit to Provence Aquaculture, an aquaculture farm; a visit to Mucem - the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisation; a reception at the Hôtel Dieu Intercontinental Marseille and a regatta on the stretch of water where sailing events will be held during the 2024 Olympic Games.
Trip to Reims
Reims and the surrounding area is a world-famous region renowned for its exclusive champagne production. It is the perfect place to study the marketing strategies and future plans of the region's leading champagne houses and most prestigious establishments.
Activities included a private tour of the Deutz and Brochet champagne houses in the company of the owners; conferences with the Grand Reims Tourist Office and the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC); a meeting with the management of the Hôtel & Spa Royal Champagne and a reception and lunch hosted by 3-star chef Arnaud Lallement at the Assiette Champenoise.
Trip to Bordeaux
To understand the hotel industry, it is essential to study its environment, and in particular, the development and promotion of cities. Bordeaux is an exemplary city in this respect, with an ambitious urban project designed in 1996 and perfectly executed ever since. In Bordeaux, students look at the city's marketing plan and its impact on tourism through visits, conferences and meetings with professionals.
Activities include a reception at the InterContinental Bordeaux - Le Grand Hôtel; a tour of Saint-Emilion; a visit and tasting at Château de Pressac, the Bordeaux Wine School and the Cité du Vin; lunch at Yannick Alléno's Table de Pavie and dinner at Philippe Etchebest's Quatrième Mur.
