HM 370 WEEK 3 Trends in Recreation, Travel and Tourism Paper

Write a 1,800- to 2,150-word paper in which you compare the textbook definition of recreation, travel, and tourism with the reality of the destination city you selected for your Destination Presentation. In your paper, address the following:

  • Identify at least four current trends that affect recreation, travel, and tourism within your selected destination city. Describe each trend. What effect do these trends have on hospitality operations in your selected destination city?
  • Discuss the role of a convention and visitors bureau (CVB) and the tourism commissions in the hospitality industry. What effect do CVBs and tourism commissions have on the hospitality industry in your selected city?

Note from Colleen to Class:   Is your team certain you know what a “trend” is?  If not, please let me know.  I also want to give you a heads up that you do not want to waste 1,000 words on detailing the textbook definition of recreation, travel and tourism.  The assignment is looking for you to relate it back with their four bullet point segments, it is not asking for a lengthy definition.  One of my former classes became really hung up on the definition and then spent only a few words covering the meat of the assignment.  This type of approach did not make for a happy ending. (smile)

Cite all of your sources and remember to include at least two in-text references, please.
