On the 27th of September 2017, World Tourism Day was celebrated at AURO University. The day was started by illuminating the students and the faculty of AURO University about the importance of sustainable tourism and the essence of World Tourism Day. We gathered around the reception area and pledged for sustainable tourism. As the day started on a positive note, the students of Hospitality Management were pumped with enthusiasm to continue this day with glee.
The event consisted of 3 events; essay writing competition on sustainable tourism, no flame cooking competition and poster making competition. In order to make this event more exciting we had a lucky draw sponsored by Cox and Kings Travels, and Sadbhavna Diamonds. The event started later in the afternoon at 2 p.m. and went on till 3 p.m. and the judging took place immediately after that. The results for all the events including the lucky draw were announced at 3:30 p.m.. This was the end of the celebration of World Tourism Day at our university.
The best part was that the students of all the schools of the university took part enthusiastically in all the events. This part had brought a lot of joy to all of us. At the end of the day everybody had come together to make this event a success.
