REVIEW: Facilities Management and Development for Tourism, Hospitality and Events is an important subject from both theoretical and applied perspectives, as land, property and resources represent major components of the foundation of the industry. Weather it is a restaurant, hotel, visitor attraction or events venue, any such facility is extremely valuable, costs a great deal of money to develop and operate , and represent much of the environment in which guests, or visitors experiences are generated and delivered. In spite of the importance of facilities, little has been written that focuses on them; the specific operational issues they encounter, their role within destination development and as the interface between the multi-faceted hospitality, tourism, leisure and Events sectors. As future managers, it is imperative that the students have a sound basic knowledge of property and various resources, systems and services associated with it.

As well as the application of broader skills such as project management, leadership, IT and innovation, this book covers important contemporary subjects, including corporate social responsibility and environmental management. It considers the planning, development and management of facilities operation from several key perspectives, drawing upon the expertise of complementary experts in the design, management and development of THE Facilities. Including case studies as diverse as the restoration of ST. Pancras train station in the U.K, the Qatar 2022 worldcup and waste water treatment in FrangipanniLangkawi Resort and Spa in Malaysia, this book covers everything a student needs to know about Facilities Management in the industries.
