    INTRODUCTION Marketing efforts once focused primarily on the selling of manufactured products such as cars and aspirin. But today the service industries have grown more important to the economy than the manufacturing sector. Services, unlike products, are intangible and involve a deed, a performance, or an effort that cannot be physically possessed. Currently, more people are employed in the provision of services than in the manufacture of products, and this area shows every indication of expanding even further. Tourism sector being our main area of concern we have chosen the hotel industry

    Hotel Property “It’s not just property risk it’s business risk – and that’s like having two assets.” (Domestic fund manager – hotel investor) The returns to hotel investment are inextricably linked to local and foreign tourist demand. Therefore the relationship between the hotel industry and the wider tourism industry is two-directional. Without tourists there can be no hotel industry and without hotels there can be no tourism industry. The volatility of the tourism industry is well known and demand for tourism services is particularly sensitive to both price competition and non-predict

You shoot him a dirty look for calling you that name. He whispers “The Guards are coming! This one is a drunk, maybe you can snatch the key from him!” You nod in agreement and bring your finger up to your mouth as if to signal silen

    Dennis Stanhope is the main character in the play Journey’s End. He is presented as a company commander in WW1. It is not said in the play how old he is exactly but he is described as ‘no more than a boy’ and thus could be estimated at about 20 or 21 years old. Even though he is only a boy he has already obtained a Military Cross which is quite a feat for only a boy. This in itself shows the extent of Stanhope’s capabilities as a commander. Stanhope is very much the ‘hero’ of the play. He is a very complex individual and he is flawed which is a surprising trait for a potential “hero”. At th
