new research by Dr Lorraine Brown
 
Adeloye, D. and Brown, L. 2017 Terrorism and domestic tourist risk perceptions Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change.
 
ABSTRACT
Previous research suggests that threats to security influence tourists’ risk perceptions and travel decision-making. This qualitative study investigates British domestic tourists’ risk perception in the light of the rapidly growing global trend of terrorism. This study yields three insights: (1) the incidence of terrorism produces an emotional response of fear and anxiety; (2) willingness to travel despite perceived travel risk varies depending on factors such as reason for travel, visual presence of security services, and the one-off nature of the attack; (3) the media’s influence on travel risk perception is a function of how the media is perceived.

Human Resources for Hospitality – Trends and Challenges in the UK hospitality industry. Recruitment & Selection Challenges
Knowledge Partners Bournemouth University
The hospitality and tourism sector is the fourth-largest employer in the UK, with 10% of the workforce employed in 180,000 businesses, including independent restaurants, major hotel chains and visitor attractions. The latest figures reveal that more than two-fifths (43%) of workers in this sector are foreign nationals – mainly from the former eastern and southern European countries. The management of such a diverse and multicultural workforce poses significant challenges and great opportunities for hospitality businesses. Two recent industry reports by People 1st (2013; 2015) highlight the skills, productivity and retention problems in the hospitality sector. On the top of that, Brexit poses significant threats for the hospitality sector and its multicultural workforce. There is no doubt that the latest political developments will affect the UK Hospitality industry and possibly slow down the steady growth experienced in the past two decades. It is up to the sector’s decision makers to identify and capitalise the new opportunities that will emerge in the local, regional, national and international markets.

New Article Shanshan Qi, Rob Law & Dimitrios Buhalis (2017): Comparative evaluation study of the websites of China-based and international luxury hotels, Journal of China Tourism Research

Comparative evaluation study of the websites of China-based and international luxury hotels

中国和国际豪华酒店网站的比较评估

Practitioners in the hotel industry constantly seek ways to improve their online and offline presence to improve their competitiveness and profitability. Consumers from different countries differ in their preferences for color, pictures, navigation, and site structure, which affect the performance of hotel websites. To connect industry efforts with consumer requirements, this study adopted a website usefulness framework to compare the websites of China-based luxury hotels with those of international luxury hotels. A fuzzy model was applied to analyze the data collected from online users. Findings of this study will be utilized to assess the perceptions of Chinese and international users and to compare the performance of the websites of China-based luxury hotels with those of international luxury hotels. Results show that Chinese and international consumers significantly differ in their perception of the usefulness performance of China-based and international luxury hotel websites.

New Research paper Viachaslau Filimonau & Michelle Grant, 2017, Exploring the concept of dining out organically: a managerial perspective, Anatolia 28(1), pp.80-92 http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/13032917.2016.1265566

Abstract

Market research suggests that organic food consumption in Europe is growing. The concept of dining out organically may therefore represent a promising business opportunity and yet little is known about how it is perceived by restaurant managers. This study reports on the outcome of a qualitative research conducted with managers of UK casual dining restaurants. It finds that restaurateurs are sceptical about the business feasibility of dining out organically which is viewed as a niche market with limited consumer appeal. This contradicts market research which questions the robustness of its findings. A new research stream looking at actual consumer behaviour, rather than attitudes, when dining out is necessary. Recommendations are devised to facilitate organic dining out in the UK.
