The trip included a cultural experience for six Event Management students from Algonquin College during the first 10 days. The following two weeks included the delivery of FAE1328 Programming for Meetings and Conferences by Algonquin’s Event Management faculty to second-year business students at Wanli University majoring in Exposition Management.
