At ViaVia Tourism Academy, we start from our years of experience within the Joker/ViaVia network. We collaborate with entrepreneurs, educational institutions, and governments on short- and long-term projects worldwide.

Our style

  • personal, customised, and professional
  • based on practical experience
    and substantiated research
  • result-oriented and hands-on
  • a little bit headstrong

For whom

Current and future entrepreneurs in tourism

From tour operators to independent guides, from hoteliers to owners of lodgings, in Belgium and abroad.
We do this by strengthening intercultural competences and knowledge of sustainable entrepreneurship.

Educational institutions in tourism 

Today’s students are tomorrow’s professionals. Sharpening skills and learning by experience are key.
We do this as knowledge and experience coordinator for ‘Learning Network Sustainable & Innovative Tourism’ in Tourism Education in Flanders, but also as ‘Train-the-trainer’ in Malawi, Peru, Senegal, China, South Africa … among others, and as organiser of worldwide internships.


Governments at international, national, or local level can call on us for research, advice, and development.
We do this by being involved in European projects (Innoguide, STeDe, Eileen, Sundry Seeds …), by cooperating with cities (Mechelen, Leuven, Antwerp …) and by conducting various research and consultancy activities on behalf of governments.

We do this by

  • developing innovative total concepts, testing, and refining them; conducting research and formulating recommendations for clients
  • strengthening competences with interactive training courses and coaching; inspiring with workshops, guest lectures and readings
  • organising learning networks, exchanges and internships, ground-breaking collaborations, amongst others with the Joker/ViaVia network
