The paper 'Feasibility Analysis of Briscan Hotel " is a good example of a management case study. In Australia, tourism has been on the rise in the past decade. Though domestic tourism has been declining of late, international tourism has provided a major revival. The rate of international arrivals has been increasing for the past five years thereby providing a promising ground for investment. Therefore, the idea to start the hotel will be aiming to take advantage of the growth in the industry. Briscan hotel will be located in the outskirt of Brisbane, a strategic position maximizing the advantage of many tourists’ destinations in Queensland. The hotel purposes to serve both domestic and foreign visitors.
The hotel will offer catering services and accommodation (Timo & Davidson 2005). In addition, it will include several cuisines that will be part of the differentiation strategy. It will also serve the whole family by the inclusion of children's activity and have the fitness centre at the disposal. Table of Contents INTRODUCTION Briscan Hotel will be a hotel structured to serve both domestic and foreign tourists.
