Hotels, meeting and exhibition venues, travel and eco-tourism, food and beverage services all fall under the broad hospitality industry. Asia has seen significant growth in its hospitality industry over the past decade. Many hospitality groups are rapidly expanding into the Asian hospitality market, focusing their efforts particularly in China, India, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. The first edition of Welcome to Hospitality: An Asian Perspective provides a broad overview of the Asian hospitality sector, including lodging, food and beverage services, global gaming, meetings, events and exhibitions, escapist tourism, and the future of the hospitality and tourism industry. Special attention is also given to Asia’s unique culture and economic changes which have influenced hospitality. Additionally, new material surrounding robotics, artificial intelligence, innovation, digital transformation, and the advancement of technology are included. Leadership profiles of Asia’s most successful hospitality leaders and “graduate glimpses” will also highlight the successful career paths afforded to students in the broad and diverse sectors within hospitality.
