Each year the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI) hosts high school students from around the world who come to Orlando, Florida to showcase their skills in a 2-day competition that challenges participants with events based on real-world job scenarios in the hospitality industry. The Hospitality Tourism and Management (HTMP) international competition provides opportunities for students and instructors alike to network with representatives from colleges, hotels, and hospitality associations.
Students compete for scholarship dollars from leading hospitality universities and the ultimate prize - a trip to New York City for the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) Fall Conference and International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS) where they will rub elbows with some of the most important leaders in our industry.
During the HTMP competition, teams of students display their proficiency while competing in three contests:
Hotel Operations: Students apply their knowledge in a three-part challenge: room inspection, in which students have 10 minutes to find 10 housekeeping cleaning errors in a typical guestroom using an executive housekeeping checklist; night audit, in which teams perform financial calculations and manually post front desk accounting information; and case studies in food and beverage, guest service and sales and marketing, in which students have 20 minutes to prepare solutions to case study scenarios.
The Hospitality Project: Teams demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and abilities in event planning. They are given a scenario that includes budget parameters, proposal design, banquet event order, menu, and floor plan.
The Knowledge Bowl: Teams demonstrate their knowledge through a multi-round, question-and-answer quiz.
