How Hospitality Consulting Has Changed Over the Past 25 Years
Things really started to change in hotel consulting in the mid eighties. The catalyst for change was the International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC) – www.ishc.com . While its co-founders were primarily “traditional” hotel consultants there were a few founding members with disciplines other than market and feasibility studies.
As the industry continued to grow and diversify, the demands from the client began to require consultants with additional skills. As the ISHC continued to identify these skills they invited potential members with these skills to join. Consultants specializing in the hotel industry with expertise in hospitality specific areas such as appraisals, architecture, casinos, marinas, water parks, golf courses, condo hotels, and convention centers. Today this “by invitation only” society has over 200 members in 26 countries. It would be rare today for a hospitality related project not to be involved in some manner with an ISHC member.
