Recap of competition in Breda 2019:

Welcome to the Emerald Forest Hotel!

This is the homepage of your simulation in Breda, called 31NL, May 2020. English is meant as a way of communication so the texts might not always be totally correct. All of the content is in English as this is an international hotel.

What is the game?

You all take over the Emerald Forest Hotel as a management team. You have to run the hotel, trying to do better than has been done in the past. Last year's decisions and results, the history, are available as a point of reference. You all ave the same hotels, with the same data as starting point. The hotels are located in your own country, so the Netherlands, in a number of (fictitious) cities. Each city consists of approx. ten hotels. Your direct, or main competitors are the other hotels in your city.
Christina Bergman and her CEO Jill Jandal give you the task to take over the Emerald Forest Hotel. So, from a distance, they will follow the developments as well.

What are the goals?

The task you have when taking over the hotel, is to do better then before. The existing and realistic dates of Emerald Forest Hotel offer the possibility to apply management skills and knowledge. Learning goals are:

  • Working in a large amount of data and finding the right data as a team
  • Working on the competence creativity and communication by doing assignments
  • Running your own management team in a pleasant and businesslike way
  • Behaving like entrepreneurs: handling uncertainty, finding solutions, excepting failures
  • Acting like entrepreneur in real-life situations

You will do by managing the hotel in the following ways:

  • Making assignments during a number of years
  • Explaining why and how you do things
  • Live-actions in the game
  • Handling situation, make choices and be creative
  • Taking into account the competitions, real live and other things happening during the competition


This platform is where you can find documentation on many elements linked to your hotel.
We will use the Facebook group 31NL as a platform to profile your hotel: so join as soon as possible! We ask one members of each group to join the Whastapp group, supporting the total of the game.
There is modules in the study program related to the game, as we will explain.
Most important contact point will be your coach.

Module The Game

Module The Game consists of two parts:

-1- The Game.
All tasks related to run a hotel you will find underneath, as well as the coaches. This part accounts for 75% of your mark for module The Game. Your mark will be the average of the creativity mark and entrepreneurship mark in each of the four rounds.

-2- A financial management assignment based on your hotel.
For this part, you will get seminars and support from your lecturers in financial management (Arion van Ingen and Pieter Piket). This part you will hand in on LMS: the lecturers in financial management will give you all the details of this assignment.
This part, in the end, accounts for 25% of your mark for Module The Game.

Obviously: the better you run this hotel simulation, the more you get a grip on everything which will help very much in bringing the game and the financial assignment to a good end. Let's look at the game now.

Your marks

Each round your work will be evaluated by your coaches: on the element of entrepreneurship as well as creativity. This brings ten evaluations which will be published after the total of the module and on an average bring your final mark for the game part of module The Game. During the game, you will get coach comments, though. Marks are individual, but very likely in many cases will be the same for all team members. Your coaches' evaluation, has a 60-70% direct influence on your occupancy rate.
