ICHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition 


It is my pleasure to announce the launch of the 4rth edition of this initiative and to cordially invite you to submit your case studies for the 2014 I-CHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition & Publications Series.

The I-CHRIE Johnson & Wales Hospitality & Tourism Case Study Competition and Publication Series has been running with great success during the last three years. The winners of the previous competitions have received numerous awards and public recognition, while the quality level of the case studies is sky rocketing each year and the competition is becoming tougher. As a result, the Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases (JHTC) has published three volumes already (4 issues per volume), which provide numerous useful case studies that educators can use in their instruction methods. 

Worthy case studies submitted to the competition will be peer-reviewed and considered for publication in the ICHRIE journal  "Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Cases". The three most highly evaluated and commented case studies will also receive prestigious (financial and material) prizes as well as public recognition and promotion in the annual ICHRIE conference and other promotional material. 

The case studies may focus on any topic and subject area related to the tourism & hospitality education and industry. Case studies may be compiled from field research, published sources and/or generalized experience. Case studies do not have to follow a specific structure. However, each case study is expected to include sections related to the following topics: a) a background of the subject organisation and/or of the topic; b) an analysis of the dilemma and/or the teaching objective; c) a section explaining the questions and dilemmas of the case study; d) related bibliography and additional reading. 

The case studies must be of maximum 5,000 words excluding figures, tables, annexes and bibliography. Each case study submission must be accompanied by a teaching note for which there is no world limit (although a teaching note of a minimum of 1,000 words is expected). The case studies and the teaching note will be evaluated against three criteria: content, theoretical underpinning, and presentation. Case studies must adhere and follow the submission guidelines of case study writing.

For more information about the submission guidelines, the competition rules, the type and amount of the awards/prizes, the evaluation criteria and the ethical/legal requirements for submitting case studies, please visit the website 


The deadline for submitting case studies to the ICHRIE Johnson & Wales case study competition is the 13th April 2014.

This is your opportunity to contribute to the Tourism & Hospitality Education as well as publish and be rewarded for your efforts.

Looking forward to receiving your case studies and thank you in advance for your valuable support to this great new initiative.

With my best regards,
