Hospitality: a social lens follows on from the unique contribution made by In Search of Hospitality: theoretical perspectives and debates. It progresses debate, challenges the boundaries of ways of knowing hospitality, and offers intellectual insights stimulated by the study of hospitality. The contributing authors provide tangible evidence of continuing advancement and development of knowledge pertaining to the phenomenon of hospitality. They draw on the richness of the social sciences, taking host and guest relations as a means of studying in-group and out-group relations with and between societies. The chapter contributors represent a multi-disciplinary, international grouping of leading academics with expertise in hospitality management and education, human resource management, linguistics, modern languages, gastronomy, history, human geography, art, architecture, anthropology, and sociology. Each lends their expertise to apply as a social lens through which to view, analyse, and explore hospitality within a range of contexts. Through this process novel ways of interpreting, knowing and sense-making emerge that are captured in the final chapter of the book, and have informed future research themes which are explored.

Consisting of two texts on facing pages, the form of this presentation of two 1996 lectures on hospitality by Jacques Derrida is a self-conscious enactment of its content. Invitation by Anne Dufourmantelle appears on the left (an invitation that of course originates a response), clarifying and inflecting Derrida's "response" on the right.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Sport - Sportökonomie, Sportmanagement, Note: 2,0, Universität Bielefeld (Abteilung Sportwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Sportmarketing, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ähnlich wie das Ambush-, Ambient- oder Virales-Marketing finden sich die folgenden Ausführungen dieses Papers in der Dimension der Anbieter wieder und konzentrieren sich dabei auf ein Phänomen, das insbesondere im Sportsektor1 in den letzten Jahren quasi einen Boom erlebt hat und so – sei es im Fußball, Golf, Tennis, Formel 1, Handball etc. – ein wesentlicher Bestandteil von Sportveranstaltungen ausmacht. Die Rede ist vom Hospitality Marketing. Terminologisch wird unter dem Begriff Hospitality „Gastfreundschaft“ verstanden, sprich „das Empfangen, Bewirten und Unterhalten von Fremden oder Gästen auf freundliche und großzügige Weise“ (vgl. das moderne Fremdwörterbuch, 2007, S. 221). Aus der Sicht des Marketings verstehen Wirtschaftswissenschaftler unter "Hospitality" die Praxis eines Unternehmens, Personen zu bewirten, die einen Einfluss auf den zukünftigen wirtschaftlichen Erfolg des jeweiligen Unternehmens haben können (vgl. Bruhn, 2009, S. 241f.). Hospitality-Marketing fungiert so grundsätzlich als ein außerordentlich, wirksames strategisches Marketingtool und gilt gleichzeitig als wesentliches Instrument betrieblicher Kommunikationspolitik. Für zahlreiche Unternehmen ist Hospitality somit ein zentraler Bestandteil der Marketing-Aktivitäten und zudem ein wichtiges Element ihrer Sponsoren-Aktivitäten.

The objective of this textbook is to teach students to be conversational in speaking “numbers.” This means understanding fundamental accounting concepts, developing solid financial analysis abilities, and then applying them to understand and improve the operational performance of their hotel or restaurant. The book will accomplish this by studying the current practices of some of today’s leading hotel and restaurant companies. Chapters will be developed under the auspices of a select group of hospitality industry General Mangers, Directors of Finance, and Regional Accounting Managers to ensure that the information is current, accurate and useful. Understanding and applying the information will be the main focus of this book. This textbook should provide hospitality managers the knowledge and experience to be comfortable in using numbers to operate their departments. This includes developing the ability to perform all accounting and financial aspects of their position efficiently and correctly including revenue forecasting, wage scheduling, budgeting, P&L critiques, purchasing procedures and cost control methods. As a result, they will have more time to spend on the floor with their customers and employees. This knowledge will help them understand their operations and how to improve, change or expand them to increase revenues or profits.

The tourism industry, of which the hospitality industry is the core element, is one of the largest and the fastest growing industries world-wide. According to World Tourism Organisation forecasts, the industry will continue to grow and employ more people in the twenty-first century. In parallel with the growth of the tourism and hospitality industry world-wide, consumer expectations and demands for quality are rising while consumer tastes are varying on the one hand, and competition among the firms, both nationally and internationally, is intensifying on the other. In this business environment of heightened consumer expectations, distinct market segments that demand unique products and services, and stiff competition, tourism and hospitality organisations are looking for ways to excel in service quality, customer satisfaction, competition and performance. This book takes the view that employees are one of the most, if not the most, important resources or assets for tourism and hospitality organisations in their endeavour to provide excellent service, meet and exceed consumer expectations, achieve competitive advantage and exceptional organisational performance. The purpose of this book is to emphasise the critical role of employees for tourism and hospitality organisations and to examine the ways and means of managing their attitudes and behaviours for the mutual benefit of both parties: tourism and hospitality organisations and their employees.

A clear understanding of the issues surrounding climate change, global warming, air and water pollution, ozone depletion, deforestation, the loss of biodiversity and global poverty is essential for every manager in the hospitality industry. Present and future hospitality executives need to know how sustainable management systems can be integrated into their businesses while maintaining and hopefully improving the bottom line. Sustainability in the Hospitality Industry explores innovative ways to tackle the ever increasing costs of energy and water as well as the moral, ethical, social and political arguments for taking action. This book uses case studies throughout to explore the following key issues: * how can hospitality properties and equipment be designed to use less resources? * what are the benefits of using more sustainable food and beverage sources? * how can environmental impacts be reduced and profitability increased? * how can properties integrate sustainability management systems and stay one step ahead of the competition? * how can the reputation of a hospitality operation be improved to attract investment by incorporating responsible marketing and corporate social responsibility policies? Sustainability in the Hospitality Industry contains stimulating new ideas, solutions, and strategies essential to every student and professional in the hospitality industry.
