It's a magazine based on research, and it reflects the changing times in hospitality research and academia as we work in collaboration with our industry partners to address their needs and share the things we've learned that can help to navigate the future of how we enjoy all aspects of hospitality, events, entertainment, foodservice, restaurants and more.

Each article speaks to a different segment of the hospitality industry and introduces you to experts in the field.
