Workshops: From Alphe to Alphitos. A quick reaction to social distancing
Workshops are “the place to be” to meet all the people of our industry, to inspire new ideas for our business. But, in corona virus times, face to face meetings are something we must avoid, at least for a while.
That is why StudyTravel quickly reacted to the emergency announcing a series of new online agent conferences throughout the coming months under the name of ST Alphitos Online.
The series of ST Alphitos Online events – running from May 6th through to July 31st – are designed to help educators and agents forge new connections and keep in touch with existing contacts.
Each ST Alphito will focus either on a study destination (city, region or country) or a specific student market, and will be held over a four-hour period, allowing participants to schedule up to eight 30-minute online meetings.

The first ST Alphito Online event on May 6th.
Ash Rees , Manager of ST Alphe Conferences, explained, “Alphitos, or ‘little Alphes’, are half-day online events that embody everything industry professionals love about ST Alphe Conferences in an accessible online format to suit their circumstances.”
As with regular ST Alphe Conferences, the events will feature quality, reference-checked agents, structured meeting schedules and full support from the ST Alphe team.
The in-house Meeting Manager system has been optimised to facilitate online meetings seamlessly, with enhanced appointment scheduling, integration with Skype, and an electronic gong to signify the beginning and end of meetings.
The launch of ST Alphitos follows a world-first online agent conference ST Alphe Istanbul recently and the successful ST Alphe Secondary Focus – Online event this week, which featured 67 agents from 28 countries.
The new ST Alphitos destination-focused events include a conference on online programmes (20th May), reflecting the recent launch of several distance learning courses due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, and two specific events for secondary schools: North of England (3rd June) and New Zealand (31st July).
