the 2014 ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Case Study Competition &
The ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study
Competition and Publication Series has been running with great success
during the last three years. The winners of the previous competitions
have received numerous awards and public recognition, while the quality
level of the case studies is sky rocketing each year and the competition
is becoming tougher. As a result, the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases
(JHTC) has published three volumes already (4 issues per volumes),

Worthy case studies submitted to the competition are peer-reviewed and
considered for publication in the ICHRIE electronic journal, Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases.
This e-journal is an ICHRIE publication that aims to fill in the
publication gap for case studies in tourism and hospitality. Case
studies provide innovative ideas, business (best) practices,
professional dilemmas, and lessons learned from the tourism and
hospitality reality. Hence, cases are an invaluable source of knowledge
for educators, professionals and researchers alike.
In this vein, the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases is the first peer-reviewed publication in tourism that aims to act as:
The electronic journal, Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases,

- an additional important contribution of ICHRIE to tourism & hospitality education and research.
