Cornell Hospitality Industry Perspectives
The Industry Perspectives: A White Paper Series from Cornell draws on the expertise of hospitality industry leaders for their insights on the issues that matter most to senior executives and hospitality practitioners.
Participation in this industry-wide forum is open to leaders in all areas of the hospitality industry and related businesses. The Industry Perspectives series allows executives and managers to share successful ideas from their organizations or to explain positive interactions of hospitality businesses and their communities. The perspectives should present examples and procedures that others in the industry could learn from and follow.
Please note that all new and forthcoming Industry Perspectives will be published as Center for Hospitality Research Reports. They can be found in the Center for Hospitality Research Reports collection.
