ASCENSO tourism and sports congress

Experts from the sports and tourism sectors, students of ASCENSO Academy and other guests come together regularly for exciting lectures, panel discussions and professional exchange. Another annual highlight is ASCENSO Tourism and Sports Congress. The whole event is designed, planned and carried out by students. Under guidance from their lecturers, they create an event and sponsor concept, engage speakers, select a suitable location and venue, and organize the catering. The reporting and communication work, such as   the Facebook support page, the Instagram account and the video shoots, are all in the hands of the students. Guests and speakers at past congresses have been, 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).
