The 37th annual IHI National Hospitality Business Management Game & Student Seminar 2022, took place on 06 & 07 March at the Clayton Hotel, Dublin Airport. TU Dublin was represented by three teams, one from the Tallaght campus and two from Grangegorman campus.

Seven teams took part over two weeks where they faced the challenge of opening a hotel after Covid and developing a recruitment and retention strategy to board level. The final task in real time was to present to the judges a sales and marketing strategy, as if to board level.

The IHI welcomed students from four colleges to The Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport to present their recommendations to a select group of judges including:

  • Eavanna Ryan, Group Sales and Marketing from the Connacht Hospitality Group
  • Russell Hadley, General Manager of The Mayson Hotel
  • Patrick McNamara of Broadline Recruiters and
  • Monica Morgan, Human Resources and Training Director of The K Club.

On the 28th of February, the competition started virtually, with a day of challenges. It consisted of a simulation challenge and a report regarding the retention and high turnover of staff. 

Then on March 07 & 08 the team delivered their final challenge to a panel of judges They had to come up with a sales and marketing strategy for a hotel post COVID-19. 

Whilst the TU Dublin teams were not placed in the top three they represented the university with great pride and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I am so proud as Team Captain of the work my team and I put into each challenge. The competition really gave us a sense of passionate teamwork, this is something that will stand by me while working in the hospitality industry” – Charlotte (Team TU952 Year 4)
