The Hospitality Student Event of the Year


Date: Thursday 19th March 2015

Venue: Novotel London West Hotel

Passion 4 Hospitality, the largest student and industry experts networking event created by the Institute of Hospitality is now open for free registration. On 19 March 2015,#P4H2015 will take place at Novotel London West Hotel.

2015 Event Agenda

1.  Hospitality Live Debating Competition

Open to teams of students who are members of the Institute of Hospitality through the Education Membership Scheme Programme (EMS).

Discuss a hot industry topic as a team competing against other national and International teams. Represent your university, participate and make yourself heard. Use your presentation skills, your quick-thinking and your sense of humour to make sure your team wins the competition.

Our 2014 event saw the Bournemouth University team win both competitions, fighting off student teams from IMI University Centre Switzerland, Hotelschool The Hague, University College Birmingham and University Campus Suffolk.

Crispin Farbrother, Programme Leader for Hospitality in the School of Tourism at Bournemouth University, said: “The teams felt well prepared, but as the day went on the excitement was mixed with elements of tension as they appreciated the seriousness, competitiveness and quality of the other teams. Meeting the other team members was of value and the close finish did nothing but add to the experience of the day. Winning was fantastic for us and some of our students are already planning to return and defend their title in 2015.”

2.  Business Game Competition

Open to teams of students who are members of the Institute of Hospitality through the Education Membership Scheme Programme. Industry professionals who are individual members of the Institute are also welcome to participate in the game.

Run your own virtual hotel with HOTS Simulation system and make successful business decisions in all operational areas of your property. HOTS Simulation is a web based business management system that challenges participants to run a large hotel with a series of online exercises including business planning, goal setting and scenario planning.

Each team will manage a hotel within the virtual environment and will need to make the best strategic business decisions to win the competition.

Working in partnership with arena4|finance and HOTS, the Business Game Competition Final will take place alongside the Hospitality Live Debating Competition Final on 19 March 2015.
