Read “How Companies Act on Global Trends” and “Build your business on trends, not fads“. Your task is to write an argument that makes a case for why “the hospitality industry must respond pro-activity to global trends and how to stay away from fads”.

Your paper should be 800 words (plus, minus 10%), follow APA formatting, and must reference a minimum of 1 additional source (beyond the two sources provided in this assignment), and must tie into your class learning.
