Skyline University College Associate Professor and Chair of Teaching Effectiveness Committee Dr. Mohit Vij has recently participated at the 3rd Global Tourism and Hospitality Conference organized by Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong on June 5-7, 2017. Dr. Mohit presented his findings of the study on, Residents’ Perceptions towards a Mega Event: A Case of Dubai World Expo 2020. “The results of the study focused on the importance of taking residents in confidence for organizing any successful event. So far UAE residents look quite positive towards World Expo 2020, however, need of the hour is to establishing and communicating few tangible gains to the residents, out of the event enabling them to get involved in a better way," Dr. Mohit enthused. The 3-day conference witnessed rounds of academic deliberation made by academicians and practitioners from all over the world.
