HOMEWORK  ASSIGNMENT #1
and MAKE-UP ASSIGNMENT to do instead of coming to class on May 23rd:

1.  Imagine that you are working for a big corporation that is going to hold a global convention
of its managers from 35 countries -- and you are assigned to recommend a top city.

2.  Choose one city from the Top-100 cities on the "Worldwide ranking: number of meetings
per city" list on the "ICCA Statistics Report 2016  -- NOT a city in your own nation (because,
too easy!)

3.   Research all-about your chosen city's convention-holding and relevant tourism-related
offerings.   Consider all aspects that would influence your boss's choice, including facilities,
national or city services, offices/staff to assist, political and economic factors and future
changes, tourism opportunities.  Follow the criteria based on Chapter 2!

4.   Write a 2-page memo to your Boss, summarizing Why (or why-not?) you recommend that
your company hold its big convention in that city.  Chart/graph is okay if needed, but no
photos!  2 pages paper stapled together, your name & number at top, NO plastic folder/cover
and NO title-page.  back-to-back on one piece of paper is okay.  Single-spaced, regular margins
and 12-point font!   Do NOT just copy from an internet page!

5.  Give this to Prof. Mason in class on Wednesday May 9th.

6.  Mason will judge you on English accuracy and vocabulary, original
self-writing skills,
professionalism and content quality; and how well you follow all the above directions.
