NAWA International Project Meeting in Poland

Visiting WSTiE The University College of Tourism and Ecology in Sucha Beskitzka, Poland

Within the framework of NAWA Project we had the opportunity to visit WSTiE, the University College of Tourism and Ecology in Sucha Beskidzka, south Poland in June 2019. With the participation of four countries (Poland, Hungary, England and Italy), the first phase of the project workshop was about Design thinking as a tool for practical support of science and business development based on international partnership. The project (ending in autumn 2020) involves both practical and theoretical activities in connection with tourism and business.
During the project meeting we visited the main attractions in Lesser Poland, including Krakow and Babiogórski National Park, to get a closer look at the touristic features of the area. Based on our previous knowledge and experiences we filled in some SWOT analysis and McKinsey Matrix to contribute to the research of the Polish university concerning the tourism development of the region.
In order to enhance the spirit of entrepreneurship, all students were supposed to give a presentation on their ideas about how their university supports them to become an entrepreneur or start a career in business life.
To sum up, this project meeting was a great opportunity to encounter and successfully collaborate with international students and professors. Inspired by the best practices shared in Poland we are looking forward to the next phase of the NAWA project.

IPSERA Veszprém Workshop

The IPSERA Veszprém Workshop on Experimental gamification studies into decision making in buyer-supplier relations was a great success. On 24 and 25th June, a mix of PhD students, senior academics, practitioners and researchers had an interesting discussion of the aspect of ‘uncertainty’ in decision taking. With 8 presentations and enough time for discussion in a wonderful and stimulating environment, it certainly will be continued in the future! Thank you IPSERA and University of Pannonia for sponsoring flights and hotel of invited speakers and the great catering by Oliva!

Visit to Algida Ice Cream Factory

We were very honored to  have opportunity to visit Algida Ice Cream Factory in Veszprém. Under the leadership of Professor Zoltán Kovács -who is the teacher of our Logistics class- we arrived at the factory on 13th of May 2019 at the agreed time. Our Professor believes the visit will be very helpful for our better study and deeper understanding of this course. The factory is located in Veszprém on the outskirts of a similar industrial park. The slight of the factory touched me deeply. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy accompanied by rain but this did not reduce the enthusiasm for students about to enter the world-famous Algida ice cream factory. While waiting for the staff to confirm our identity and give us permission to pass, I was observed the very rigorous inspection procedures of the factory. The pay special attention for the entry and exit persons and vehicles. Upon entering the factory, we found that, unlike ideas, it is not full of crowds with people and loud machines. Instead of it was like a pleasant environment of a small forest. Under the guidance of road signs and the staff, we quickly arrived at the building where ice cream is produced.

First we went to the conference room and after a little waiting we were welcomed by the enthusiastic reception staff and the managers responsible for managing the several departments of the factory.They presented the operation of the factory in detail such as the main business model and the relevant information in transportation. Our teachers also explained and demonstrated the similarities in the Logistics class. At the end of the presentation, the manager of the safety management department introduced us some of the “golden rules” and precautions before the visit. We were divided into three groups and took turns to visit. During the waiting period, we were fortunate to have tasted different varieties of Algida ice creams.

Before we entered we had to wear masks, headgear, earplugs, goggles and disposable overshoes, and at last we had to clean and disinfect our hands which ensures that we can do the visit safely and smoothly. We visited the temporary warehouse, production workshop, packaging workshop and the office that monitors the operation of the production machine. The environment inside the factory is very clean, and the workers are also in order. It was good to see all the staff were smiling, maybe this is the magic of Algida ice cream!

The visit was very successful and we enjoyed it. We would like to thanks to Algida Ice Cream Factory and professor Zoltán Kovács can give us such an unforgettable experience!

Field trip to Lotus Therme in Héviz

On May 16 we had the opportunity to make a visit to Lotus Therme Hotel in Hévíz, the only 5 star hotel in the area.

During such a grimy day it was a pleasure to be greeted with a smile by the staff. We just waited a bit before the tour around started. After a short introduction of the hotel we were taken to the backstage, the part that guest never experience and where everything happens.

As soon as we crossed the door meant only for the staff, the decoration changed from charming and welcoming to a functional Brutalism. We walked around the spotless, and surprisingly not hot, kitchen and the back door. Everybody were busy in their normal activities but still had the time to smile at us with some degree of curiosity. A woman making a cake told us how she has been working there for 15 years as well as her husband who was a chef.

We passed through the employees area where they change their clothes, get the supplies for their work and even where they eat. They treated us with some coffee and delicious biscuits while answering our questions. We learned the difficulties to find the right staff since even the cleaning staff had to speak English or some other language to some degree to the kind of guest they usually receive.

Afterwards we were able to see the hotel itself. We visited the restaurant when the breakfast was about to be over, so we could see a bit of the culinary offer they had. Then we were taken to 3 rooms that were not the star of the place. This title belonged to their thermal pools and spa section. With outdoor and indoor pools where guests could relax in the warm water, all kind of massages available and even a salt cave, this hotel is a great place to spend a few days improving one’s health.

We ended our visit with a warm farewell from our guide and took a last picture in front of the hotel before going back to Veszprem.
