Tio students make a splash in Ibiza during the Reiswerk Students Challenge

During this year’s Reiswerk Students Challenge in Ibiza, nine Tio students did us proud and showed off their skills. Tourism students Ginny, Natasja, Ronald, Anick, Maaike, Claudia, Monique, Laurèl and marketing student Michelle joined forces to go up against 55 other students from over 20 different educational institutions. The challenge: to come up with innovative new concepts for the travel industry. And what a success it was! Schiphol airport, Transavia airlines and travel and vacation agencies D-rt Groep, Vacanceselect and ANWB Reizen adopted a total of five concepts ­– and expressed an interest in evaluating their feasibility within the company together with the winning students.
