The topic for the same was Ecotels.  Today  Sustainability is the buzz word in Tourism Industry. And  Hotels  are part of this Industry.  Ecotels  are eco friendly Hotels, which follow different innovative practices for conservation of natural resources , reducing waste, minimizing pollution, and maximizing sustainability. We had Dr. Ketan Chande ( with 25 yrs of rich industry experience and now  from last 15 yrs into academics) who took this session on Skype and interacted with students. He threw light on different criteria for getting Ecotel certification. He also discussed about Environment -friendly Housekeeping and Eco-friendly guest supplies and stationary. It was a wonderful experience for students and the session was quite informative.
