Faculty Member & Student Publish in The Bottomline Magazine

Professor Justin Taillon and HFTM student JC Hough have published a paper in The Bottomline Magazine, an applied hotel industry publication. The paper deals with recent changes to Ontario and primarily the Toronto hotel scene and projects the future of the Toronto and Ontario markets. This includes the growth of the luxury segment (e.g. Ritz-Carlton, Shangri-La, Four Seasons, Trump), the convention market (Sheraton, Hilton, Delta, Eaton Chelsea), mega events (e.g. Pan-Am Games, Women's World Cup), and how recent changes to oil and the US dollar are impacting cross-border travels.
