If experts from the sports and tourism sectors, students of ASCENSO Academy and other guests come together for exciting lectures, panel discussions and a professional exchange, then there is another annual highlight: ASCENSO Tourism and Sports Congress. The whole event is designed, planned and carried out by students. Together with their lecturers, they create an event and sponsor concept, engage speakers, select a suitable location and organize the catering. The reporting and communication work, such as the support of the Facebook page, the Instagram account and the shooting of videos, are all in the hands of the students. Guests and speakers of past congresses were, for example, Axel Schulz (former professional boxer), Ulrike Braun (Sales Manager at the Hotel Resort Europa-Park in Rust) and Oliver Brüggen (Director PR adidas).


The strong network of ASCENSO Academy is complemented by our alumni who now work in numerous positions. As part of the annual alumni meeting, current and future students can exchange ideas, socialize and gain experience. Experienced industry professionals also come as guest speakers to ASCENSO Academy for these networking meetings.
