HSTM 2230—Hospitality Experience Project
Deadline: April 7th (budget and itinerary need submitted to Canvas), presentations will begin in class
Point Value: 100 points (50 points for presentation, 20 points for bulleted daily itinerary, 20 points for Excel budget, 10 points for location selection and justification)
Assignment: Individually, you will locate your dream destination within the United States. Based on your dream destination, you will design and plan your ideal hospitality experience trip. You will act as a travel agent and plan your trip from start to finish. This trip must include all elements of hospitality discussed in this course: mode of transportation(s), lodging, food and beverage, and theme parks and attraction activities. Your trip plan should be for 7 days and have a detailed plan for each day including activities, food and beverage, etc.
Assignment Instructions: Scan through Travel & Leisure (or similar) magazines to find your ideal location. Once your location is selected, you are responsible for planning a 7 day, dream vacation. A budget number has not been given, but please make this trip attainable for the common person (no luxury jets or private locations that a normal person wouldn’t be able to afford!). You are expected to detail your trip in a verbal, stand-up presentation explaining your vacation selections as if you were a travel agent trying to sell your vacation to others. You will need to create a very detailed itinerary and budget for us so we know exactly what you’ve planned and expect of us financially.
