Description Association of European Training Centres in Tourism (ACEEPT) tries to reach to following goals:

1. To narrow the gap between students of Tourism and professionals of Tourism,
2. To add value to existing training programs of each partner,
3. To promote cross-cultural contacts
In all the activities of ACEEPT, we strive for high standard of quality.
Every year, one of the participating partners organizes a project week in which students work under the guidance of lecturers and professionals on a particular theme. The students will get an assignment prior to the project week. New tasks will be given during the project week. The following themes have been dealt with up till now: Sustainable Tourism, Tourism and Local Products, Business Travel, Tourism and Technology, Adventurous Tourism, Crisis Management, City Marketing, Destination Management.

We believe that events such as these open up invaluable opportunities for discussion, for working with peers and professionals, for working out new projects, and for making what may very well turn out to be productive international contacts.
