Their team will compete against eight other teams representing young hospitality managers of the future from all over Ireland, for an overall prize of a tutored three day visit to Champagne Taittinger’s historic Château and vineyards in Reims, North-East France.

The IHI Business Games consist of a case study of a hospitality business representing real-life business issues, such as interacting with competitors within the wider business environment, while also managing internal business affairs.

The finals will be held at Fitzpatrick’s Killiney Castle Hotel in Dublin on April 1.
