Founded in 1946 as a non-profit organisation for schools, colleges and universities offering programs of study in hospitality and tourism, International CHRIE has since expanded its scope to include the enhancement of professionalism at all levels of the hospitality and tourism industry, monitoring ongoing developments and keeping its members at the forefront of trends.
With around 1,500 members world-wide located in close to 50 countries, CHRIE is a tremendous source of interaction, information and influence for everyone committed to hospitality and tourism industry related education and training, including professionals from the industry itself, and representatives from allied associations. CHRIE works to enhance professionalism in the hospitality and tourism industry - and ultimately service quality and competitiveness - through education and training.
For more than 50 years, International CHRIE has had the foresight and ingenuity to identify trends, and to respond in a constructive manner. In recent years, International CHRIE's focus has expanded and its mission statement has evolved, making it a marketplace for facilitating exchanges of information, ideas, research, products and services related to education, training and resource development for the hospitality and tourism industry (food, lodging, recreation and travel services). Serving as the hospitality and tourism education network, we strive to unite educators, industry executives and associations.
