Welcome to the August Issue
This month, read about going “green”, hotel real-estate trends, developing new skills in a wide variety of areas and see the benefits of online learning from an outside point-of–view.
When going “green” gets you more greenbacks
A study in Taiwan reported by Cornell Hospitality Quarterly has found that patrons would be willing to pay more for restaurant food if they knew that the restaurant was using “green” practices. Although this study was based on people’s opinions and not actions, this encourages restaurants to advertise their efforts towards sustainability. As the world moves forward, people are attracted to green practices, and this is a way to appeal to customers and turn a profit.

Study analyzes the explosion of hotel mergers and acquisitions
An analysis done by Cornell University professors has examined the rush of lodging mergers and acquisitions from 2004 to 2007. This analysis has shed light on the characteristics of companies that are most likely to be taken over. While the mergers and acquisitions are stalled because of the credit crisis, this analysis allows investors and owners an inside look into possible outcomes in the future of the hospitality business.
