VisitBritain chairman Christopher Rodrigues has received an honorary degree from the university of Surrey to recognise his “outstanding contribution” to the tourism industry.
Rodrigues has a close association with the university's School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. It was the first English university to run a tourism course more than 40 years ago.
Professor Graham Miller, head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, who nominated Rodrigues for his honorary degree, said: "As a visiting fellow he has been a regular contributor to our teaching, giving our students valuable insight on the strategic development of the tourism industry."
The award was made at Guildford Cathedral.
