Assessment Description
The purpose of this group presentation is to develop students’ skills in applying relevant Hospitality and Tourism analysis tools. This will enable students to apply learned Hospitality and Tourism theories and concepts to a ‘real world’ scenario within a safe learning environment. More importantly, this is a fantastic opportunity for students to develop essential group work skills that are such a necessity in today’s Tourism and Hospitality Industry.

Once you have created a group, you then need to get acquainted with the rest of the members and select your team leader. In this assessment, your group will concentrate on the Commonwealth Games 2018. More specifically, your group must investigate and analyse the social, economic, cultural, political, and environmental impacts on both state and national Hospitality and Tourism Industry.
