HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT: A PRACTICAL INTRODUCTION book launch
The hospitality industry fulfils an important role in providing a variety of products and services to paying customers. This incorporates the offerings of the industry as a whole, ranging from the provision of food and beverages to accommodation and informing tourists about local attractions and events. Due to the demanding and service-oriented nature of the hospitality industry, it is imperative that the owners and managers of these establishments are adequately informed about the managerial and operational challenges they face.

The aim of this book is to provide a practical introduction to a variety of components that can contribute to the success of hospitality establishments.
