Ovidiu will facilitate the HOTELSim team simulation and guide participants through the operations of a hotel for a year: from setting the price for the rooms, to hiring staff and bringing in revenue for the hotel owner.
What is HOTELSim? A hotel management simulation where teams operate as members of the hotel’s executive committee with a leading focus on revenue optimization. Hotels compete with each other in real time and within the realistic market dynamics of a competitive set of hotels. The competitive strategies and decisions of each hotel affect their own results and those of competitors. A hotel’s market share, revenue share, and financial results depend on the team’s ability to construct, promote, and deliver a competitive price/value proposition to the market.
