Assignment: Students will be responsible for researching a tourism sector that is of interest to them. The assignment will help them to discover different types of tourism and explore how their chosen tourism sector impacts the hospitality industry as a whole.
Assignment Instructions: Find a type of tourism that interests you. I’ve provided a concept map below to show how far reaching areas and specific areas of tourism can be for inspiration. Once you’ve decided on your tourism interest, research and discuss what the tourism sector you selected focuses on. Give examples of your selected tourism industry and how tourists can enjoy or partake in your chosen tourism sector. Also, detail in your paper how the tourism sector you selected impacts the overall hospitality industry; what other industries within the hospitality industry are utilized for tourists to participate in your selected tourism sector?
