All blue links are clickable and will bring you to another page in the platform. For instance clicking on Photos and videos will jump to this page in the platform with photos and videos of the hotel. The navigation left-hand site will always stay active: and you can use back in your browser. But there is by now 4,038 pages in this platform, so if you're new first follow the steps later on on this page to prevent you from getting lost. All links which look like this - with a small blue arrow - hospitality trends 2013 and will open a new tab in your browser and open a new website outside of this platform on a new browser tab.

Your tasks during the entire game

There is a lot of information on this platform: don't get "killed by information": so do you do first? Do the tasks underneath on this page step by step. You can click on any blue link for more information on any page. Don't start doing so immediately, you might get lost ;-). Good luck!

The reception of Emerald Forest Hotel

Participating in the game means doing the next tasks:

  • tasks to be done before the game week starts (underneath)
  • tasks to be done during the game week to be found in 07EE Tasks and decisions, day by day.

Your tasks before the game week starts, so before 13th March

You will receive information from your coaches on:
> your teamnumber, the city your team is operating in and your teammembers
> your team's username and password for the platform to edit your teampage
> the secret link to the so called secure section where you make your decisions and can see your results. This section is private to each team.
With this information you can start meeting with your team, dividing the tasks, checking out the platform etc. Make sure you have your team well organised and the tasks well divided.

During March 2014 (so before the the game week, week 11) the next tasks must have been finished

  • Task 1: Meet with your teammembers

Plan meetings with your team in the weeks before the game week, to make preparations and plans for who is going to do what before this game week and during week 11. In this game week (week 11) all team members must be available all of the time. It is going to be busy but a very interesting week! Beware that the game week is from Thursday the 13th March until the end of the day on Sunday the 16th of March.

  • Task 2: Study E-manual

Study the E-manual: here you will find what you need to read before taking any action. Look around a bit in this platform, so that you get a grip on what to find here and how it works. If you want more visualization, you can check thevideo help first section to get an impression on how to use the platform, especially the page the Guided tour through the platform.

Go to the top right-hand side of this page screen at "My Preferences" scroll a bit down until you see E-mail, E-mail options. Change this e-mail address in a real e-mail address of one of your teammembers use the save button at the bottom. This e-mail might comes handy in some cases. Do not change the password or anything else in this section
- Help on this: Help:Guided tour through the platform | Help:Help on first login | Help:How to find information and help

All teammembers can login using the same username: multiple users at the same time with the same login name is no problem. To just read the content of this platform you don't need to login at all, by the way (only if you want to edit). There is much information on how to do things in Help:contents or on the special pages in Category:Hotel info. You can search with the buttons top-righthand corner: with GO for a special page on the searched for item, or with button Search which will show all pages where this search item is mentioned. No answer found? Ask your coach or use the Shoutbox which is monitored by the coaches.

After reading, discuss your strategic plans with regard to the hotel and come to a conclusion. First have a look at the example page: page 07EE Example teampage. Then start filling out your own teampage: this has to be ready entirely on Thursday the 13th at 19.00. Have a look at the secure section using your private link and fill out your chosen hotelname there!

  • Task 4: Prepare Trade Fair

In the game week, your hotel will be presenting itself at a Trade Fair on Thursday. So, before this week think this over and prepare for the Trade Fair: check this page for more information. This is an important meeting, one which will influence your success in the game. This offers you the opportunity to present your (new ideas on the) hotel. Be creative, and have a look at the pictures of Trade Fairs from competitions. All team members must participate in the Trade Fair.
To make your appearance at the Trade Fair as useful as possible, your preparations on your teampage must be ready as far as possible (new logo, slogan, introduction of new management).
