PREFACE

This international text is aimed at being the textbook of choice for three important sets of readers:
● Students studying strategy and/or marketing (probably in their final undergraduate year or postgraduate) as part of their studies in tourism, hospitality and events management.

● Students and researchers who have chosen to study tourism, hospitality or events management organizations for their dissertation, projects or assignments, who want to understand the unique characteristics of the industry and to gain knowledge of the relevant literature.
● Managers and practitioners working in tourism, hospitality and events (or seeking a career in these sectors), who want to gain an understanding of the challenges faced by managers and some of the managerial responses which can be considered.
Putting aside definitional debates, fundamentally:
● strategy is about making you think ahead regarding key issues affecting organizations;and
● strategic management is about giving you concepts, frameworks, tools and techniques to help you do so.
Consequently this book aims to make readers think ahead about the key issues facing tourism, hospitality and events management organizations and provides concepts, frameworks, tools and techniques to help you do so. The first edition of this book was published as Strategic Management for Travel and Tourism in 2003 (for which I thank my two co-authors Professors David Campbell and George Stonehouse).

This text builds on the first edition, but much has changed in the intervening years and consequently this edition is completely modified and its scope extended. The text is global in its orientation and explicitly encompasses hospitality and events along with tourism recognizing the inextricably linked nature of these sectors. The text is contemporary in that the broad range of academic literature which has emerged in recent years is incorporated as are recent industry developments.

The book contextualizes and applies relevant material from the strategic management and
tourism, hospitality and events management literature and takes an international approach to what are inherently internationally oriented industry sectors. This approach is reflected in:
● the application of concepts and principles;
● links to a wide range of relevant literature enabling further study;
● a particular focus on smaller organizations (SMEs) recognizing that they form an important part of these sectors;
● taking an explicitly international approach for what are inherently internationally oriented sectors;
● emphasis of key points affecting this industry in particular; and
● use of short illustrative examples and a series of longer cases drawn from across the industry and focusing on different parts of the world.

There are of course many existing strategic management titles. There are, however comparatively few textbooks which apply strategy to ‘services’ contexts and in particular to the service sectors of tourism, hospitality and events. These service sectors are inextricably linked and have grown to represent one of the world’s most important industries.
The strategic management challenges facing managers in service contexts are often different in a number of ways from the challenges facing managers in manufacturing industries. These different challenges reflect the characteristics of services. Furthermore, tourism, hospitality and events represent a distinctive set of services which entail an understanding of their own 
specific characteristics. Hence it is appropriate that a dedicated text should consider the strategic implications of managing in this important and rapidly developing industry (which is one of the world’s largest), in particular.
Clearly there are many examples to illustrate a text such as this, and I have chosen those which: I consider to be relevant, can gain access to information, can link with the academic material or have personal experience. However, I recognize that other illustrations could have 
been chosen. I would like to encourage readers to submit further contributions and illustrations, which would be fully attributed if they were to appear on the companion website which supports this book and contains further material. Any feedback on this edition would also be gratefully received.

Finally, I would like to thank colleagues at Teesside University and elsewhere who have com-mented on parts of this book and the publishers for all their help and support throughout the book’s production.
