Facilities planning for tourism, hospitality and events (THE) is an important subject from both theoretical and applied perspectives, as land, property and resources represent major components of the foundation of the industry. As future managers, it is imperative that students have a sound basic knowledge of property and the various resources, systems and services associated with it. Covering important contemporary subjects such as sustainable planning and environmental management, this book considers the planning, development and management of facilities operations from several key perspectives, drawing upon the expertise of complementary experts in the design, management and development of THE facilities.
