Message from the Director

Having worked in tourism & hospitality for 3 decades, the aspect that has fascinated and driven me throughout, is its power to connect people, societies, environments, industries, knowledge….

When NOVA started developing the idea of building a platform to bridge the university’s knowledge and capabilities and deploy it against the needs of the Tourism and Hospitality Industry it immediately sparked my interest; it was obvious that Nova’s vast expertise in different fields of knowledge such as sustainability, health, nutrition, heritage, digitization, data, management could be beneficial to the Tourism & Hospitality Industry, which in turn can act as a platform to connect with other industries.

This is what ultimately lead to the birth of toho!

I would love to have the opportunity to exchange views on the future of tourism and hospitality, and how we can contribute to connect knowledge to make it real.
