Cuba’S Future Hospitality And Tourism Business: Opportunities And Obstacles, John H. Thomas, Miranda Kitterlin-Lynch, Daymaris Lorenzo Del Valle 2015 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Cuba’S Future Hospitality And Tourism Business: Opportunities And Obstacles, John H. Thomas, Miranda Kitterlin-Lynch, Daymaris Lorenzo Del Valle

Center for Hospitality Research Reports

The resumption of diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba opens the prospect of a tourist boom to the Caribbean’s largest island. Cuba has many advantages to support investment, as the island is rich in land and water resources, has an educated and welcoming population, and offers myriad development opportunities. Weighing against those favorable prospects are the continued U.S. trade embargo (independent of diplomatic relations) and the Cuban government’s central control and continued regulation of foreign investment—including the possibility of unexpected changes in government policies.


Creative Capital: Financing Hotels Via Eb-5, Arian Mahmoodi, Jan A. deRoos 2015 Cornell University

Creative Capital: Financing Hotels Via Eb-5, Arian Mahmoodi, Jan A. Deroos

Center for Hospitality Research Reports

Administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), the EB-5 program (Employment-Based Immigration, Fifth Preference) allows foreign nationals to invest as little as $500,000 or as much as $1 million in a U.S. enterprise, in consideration of potentially receiving permanent residency in the United States. In recent years, EB-5 financing has grown exponentially and has become a highly utilized funding source for hotel development projects.1 Congress created the program in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through foreign direct investment to create jobs. Despite the growth of the program, the EB-5 market is opaque ...


Hospitality Hr And Big Data: Highlights From The 2015 Roundtable, J. Bruce Tracey 2015 Cornell University

Hospitality Hr And Big Data: Highlights From The 2015 Roundtable, J. Bruce Tracey

CIHLER Roundtable & Conference Highlights

The effects of so-called big data, which involves a torrent of detailed information about employees and customers, have begun to ripple through hospitality human resources—allowing managers the potential to connect HR policies with corporate financial results. As discussed in this inaugural roundtable on “Hospitality HR and Big Data,” hospitality firms are gradually addressing both the possibilities and the challenges of this mountain of data. In addition to dealing with the volume of data, hospitality firms must cope with the velocity, variety, and veracity of the data, while they also ensure ethical application of the information they gather. Given the ...


Because A Better World Is Possible: Women Casino Workers, Union Activism And The Creation Of A Just Workplace, Susan Chandler 2015 University of Nevada, Reno

Because A Better World Is Possible: Women Casino Workers, Union Activism And The Creation Of A Just Workplace, Susan Chandler

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Based on a re-analysis of data from a qualitative study of the work experience of 36 women casino workers, this article examines the contributions and personal characteristics of the 13 women in the sample who described themselves as committed union activists. These women, all leaders in the Hotel Employees, Restaurant Employees Union, were proud that collectively they had improved wages, benefits, and the conditions of work in Nevada casinos, and had created an environment that reinforced pride in a job well-done, provided job security, and promoted strong families and communities. These women's workplace experience serves as a reminder to ...

Hotel Sustainability Benchmarking Tool 2015: Energy, Water, And Carbon, Howard Chong, Eric E. Ricaurte

Center for Hospitality Research Reports

This tool—a result of the Cornell Hotel Sustainability Benchmarking (CHSB) study—grows out of a series of meetings and roundtables in which lodging industry representatives expressed the need to develop operating benchmarks for energy use, water consumption, and carbon emissions. As explained here, developing such benchmarks is challenging, due to the wide variety of hotel operations worldwide.1 Now in its second year, the CHSB is undertaken annually for the following purposes:

• Provide credible benchmarks according to industry-specific segmentation and metrics globally;

• Provide industry data analysis, using a confidential data set maintained by an academic center that will not ...


Connecting Personal Biography And Social History: Women Casino Workers And The Global Economy, Jill B. Jones, Susan Chandler 2015 University of Nevada, Reno

Connecting Personal Biography And Social History: Women Casino Workers And The Global Economy, Jill B. Jones, Susan Chandler

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Economic globalization has been described as the "most fundamental redesign of the planet's political and economic arrangements since as least the industrial revolution" (Mander, 1996). This article explores its implications in the lives of a group of women casino workers. Based on a qualitative study in which data were collected from key informants, focus groups of community leaders and professionals, and in-depth interviews with women casino workers themselves, the study attempts, in the spirit of C. Wright Mills (1959) and social work's tradition of person-in-environment, to connect "the patterns of [individual] lives and the course of world history."

Ecommerce Market Convergence In Action: Social Casinos And Real Money Gambling, Brett Abarbanel, Ardeshir Rahman

UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal

The social casino and real money gambling industries, including gambling at online and live venues (such as casino resorts), are quickly converging (H2 Gambling Capital & Odobo, 2013). Differences in demographics and gambling behaviors for different frequencies of social casino participation among real money online gamblers are examined to explore customer behaviors between the two markets. Frequency of play in social casino games varied depending on gender and education, similar to patterns in real money gambling. Players who participated more frequently in social casino games were also more likely to spend more time participating in real money online gambling, suggested to ...


Predicting Cross-Gaming Propensity Using E-Chaid Analysis, Eunju Suh, Matt Alhaery 2015 Florida International University

Predicting Cross-Gaming Propensity Using E-Chaid Analysis, Eunju Suh, Matt Alhaery

UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal

Cross-selling different types of games could provide an opportunity for casino operators to generate additional time and money spent on gaming from existing patrons. One way to identify the patrons who are likely to cross-play is mining individual players’ gaming data using predictive analytics. Hence, this study aims to predict casino patrons’ propensity to play both slots and table games, also known as cross-gaming, by applying a data-mining algorithm to patrons’ gaming data. The Exhaustive Chi-squared Automatic Interaction Detector (E-CHAID) method was employed to predict cross-gaming propensity. The E-CHAID models based on the gaming-related behavioral data produced actionable model accuracy ...

A Competency Model For Club Leaders, Kate Walsh, Jason P. Koenigsfeld 2015 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

A Competency Model For Club Leaders, Kate Walsh, Jason P. Koenigsfeld

Center for Hospitality Research Reports

To ensure the success of a service organization, leaders must have skills and abilities to shape service systems and guide employees to deliver the service experience. So far, however, we have yet to see a set of leadership competencies required for service businesses—let alone those needed for the club business. As a result, we cannot provide new managers with the competencies they need to develop in their careers. To address this issue, we conducted a survey of 596 club managers to examine the leadership competencies required for general managers of private clubs. The club industry has the classic characteristics ...
