UG Competition (Eng).jpg


The Undergraduate Student Research Competition aims to showcase undergraduate students’ theoretical knowledge and research skills, as well as to extend the frontier of their knowledge in hospitality, tourism, MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions), and other related fields.

Undergraduate student research competitors are invited to attend the conference at a rate of HK$2,000 per registrant. Awardees will be invited to attend and present their study at the IMPACT2024 Conference, which is to be held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on 11-13 October 2024.


Current undergraduate students or recent graduates within one year of graduation from their undergraduate degree at universities with hospitality and tourism programmes around the world are qualified for the competition. While the research could be conducted under faculty supervision, the student must be the first author.
