SUMMARY

We would like to thank the students and instructors who have used this text in the past. Their support has enabled us to come out with our fourth edition in just ten years. This text is now available in seven languages, plus English. Students have told us Marketing for Hospitality and Tourism is both readable and interesting. One student wrote, ?I enjoyed reading this bookit didn't seem like I was reading a textbook.' The fourth edition maintains that readability. We had a team of students read each of the chapters to make sure the concepts presented made sense to them. Additionally, students were involved in the final choice of illustrations for the text. We wanted to make certain the illustrations were both useful and interesting. For instructors, we made the text flow smoother from a teaching perspective and a team of professors were involved in developing and producing teaching aids. The book is written with the hospitality and travel student in mind. The solicited and unsolicited comments we received from both students and their instructors were incorporated into the fourth edition. The authors have extensive experience working with hospitality and travel businesses around the globe. Our understanding of the hospitality and travel business ensured that the end result is a book that clearly explains marketing concepts and then shows how they apply to real-life situations. The book has an international focus. Domestic companies are expanding overseas, while their home markets are being invaded by international companies; business markets have become internationalized. We feel that students must be exposed to business and cultural examples from other parts of the world. Rather than have one chapter on international marketing, we have incorporated examples throughout the text. This text has truly evolved as a team project. Without the support of our students and faculty at other universities and colleges this book would not have developed into the leading book in its category. We thank you for your support and acknowledge those below who have been involved in the development of the book. We Welcome Your Comments We would like to hear your comments on this edition and your suggestions for future editions. Please address these comments to: John Bowen, Conrad N.
