Participants of the BEST Las Palmas Winter Course 2017

Earlier this year intraHouse sponsored a two-week event in Las Palmas for 22 BEST students from 14 European countries as part of the BEST Las Palmas Winter Course – ShApping Your Odds, Take Your Business to the Clouds – in conjunction with others including Fred Olsen ExpressSPEGC and the Cabildo de Gran Canaria.

Working in small groups, the students had to make an app related to tourism on the Canary Islands using intraHouse’s OneMobileTool technology, which is designed to help companies and individuals make apps in an easy, fast and affordable way.

There were seven BEST courses held throughout Europe and afterwards participants had to complete a quality control assessment of the courses ranking the quality of everything related to the course from the accommodation, excursions, the academic component of the course and the interaction with the course teachers.

The intraHouse sponsored event was voted the best of the BEST winter courses gaining an impressive ranking of 87.52 beating courses held in Paris, Istanbul, and Ekaterinburg, among others.

Under the strict BEST quality control system, the BEST Las Palmas winter course has officially received a stamp of approval for the high quality of its programme and is now in the running to receive the ‘Golden Apple’, which is an award for the best BEST programme in Europe.

The winner will be announced in November and we wish BEST Las Palmas the very best of luck!
