“This competition provides students with the opportunity to research and analyze a real business issue and then to present a response to an industry panel,” says Rebecca Wilson-Mah, BA International Hotel Management program head. “Students practice research and analysis and present recommendations in a persuasive presentation under intense time pressures.”

Part of the BC Tourism & Hospitality Summit at the Vancouver Convention Centre West (VCCW), the 8th annual LinkBC Student Case Competition featured a record 17 teams from 12 different member institutions across BC that feature tourism and hospitality programs.
