“The Prime Minister of India has declared tourism as the priority sector. This decision will immediately increase the demand of hotels and manpower to work in this industry. AAFT has decided to enter into another school to cater to hospitality Industry,” said Sandeep Marwah President of AAFT.
The hospitality industry is a broad category of fields within the service industry that includes lodging, event planning, theme parks, transportation, cruise line, and additional fields within the tourism industry.
Hotel management includes Hotel & Restaurant management, Hospital Administration and Catering, Hotel and Tourism Associations, Airline Catering and Cabin Services, Club management, Guest Houses amongst others. Expansion of global travel industry and aviation industry is expected to boost hotel industry in next couple of years.
