The Ideal Place
ICHM is located in Adelaide South Australia, officially known as the festival state. A place that is renowned for its fine restaurants, quality wines, outdoor eateries and great vibrant lifestyle - what better place to come and learn the art of hospitality management. Adelaide actually has more restaurants and cafes per head of population than any other Australian city! Adelaide is safe, friendly and welcoming, small enough to provide the ideal study environment, yet full of entertainment options (when students are not studying of course!). "The environment of South Australia is ideal for a course of such quality". Dr. Christian Rey, President, Swiss Hotel Association (SHA)
