Students of RMIT University Vietnam have won second prize in the final round of “Accor Takeoff! 2017,” an international innovative ideas competition of Accor hotels’ new brand JO&JOE which took place in Paris, France last month.

The Vietnamese student team received the special jury prize from the judging panel and Microsoft Corporation for their unique ideas and impressive presentation.

Earlier, three first-year students of RMIT – Luu Thai Quang Khai (Logistics), Nguyen Thi Truc Van (Professional Communication) and Dam Hanh Tam (Economics and Finance) – defeated 200 other teams from 21 countries and territories to enter the final round of the competition with the idea of building the art of painting to bring people closer.

To come up with the breakthrough idea, the RMIT team made a fact-finding trip to all hotels under the management of international hotel management group Accor, took a tour to Dalat City to make a video, and organized a painting activity with the participation of local residents and tourists to improve the practicality of the project.

The competition has been held annually by AccorHotels Group to call for innovative ideas, targeting students of tourism, hospitability and business schools worldwide. This is the first time Vietnamese students have entered the top five finalists and claimed the second prize at the international-level contest in France.
