The competition promotes creativity and enhances the participants' practical skills and knowledge in tackling real-world problems within the Vietnamese tourism industry. Specifically, this year, RMIT aims to focus on tourism's ability to stay resilient with innovation to create sustainable tourism for Vietnam. 

AVSC 2022 is here!

RMIT’s Tourism and Hospitality Management Programme ensures inclusive and quality education for all while promoting lifelong learning. The birth of AVSC proves that. To increase the quality of tourism and hospitality education, RMIT's AVSC will serve as a platform to create awareness and encourage high school students on the importance of the tourism industry to the Vietnamese economy. World tourism leaders have built resilience and incorporated innovation to create a sustainable future. Through the competition, AVSC seeks to encourage Vietnamese high-students to uncover Vietnam's treasures and, simultaneously, to share their experiences with visitors.   



Each team must submit 01 proposal (report) and 01 video with creative solutions/ideas to build tourism by embracing innovation for sustainable development in Vietnam. Any application of AVSC that can solve a real-world problem is welcomed. 


Innovation in tourism refers to the creation of something new or to a change that can be made to an existing product or idea. Areas that can be considered:
Attractions - amusement parks, museums, architecture, theatres, shopping centres.
Accessibility - transport infrastructure, public transit services, and measures for people with mobility limitations and disabilities.
Amenities - accommodation, gastronomy, and leisure pursuits.
Available packages - service bundles by intermediaries to increase awareness of a destination's uniqueness.
Activities - all activities which attract tourists to the destination. 

Sustainable Tourism Development through Innovation
