1. Vendrik, Iris (author). Strategies to Regulate Inbound Logistics at Convention Centers: A Case Study at the RAI Amsterdam.

Degree: 2020, Delft University of Technology

Convention centers are facing logistic challenges due to poor performance, lack of space and governmental regulations. This research is focused on finding strategies that can improve performance while maintaining or reducing space and complying to these governmental regulations. In this research three main strategies are introduced that can improve logistic performance at convention centers. These main strategies are: a truck appointment system, extended operational times and cross-docking. Besides these strategies specific designs are made for the case of the RAI Amsterdam. These designs differ in infrastructure and material handling equipment such as automated vehicles. It was found that implementation of a truck appointment system, extended operational times and cross-docking can improve the performance of convention center logistics. Further improvements can be made by adjusting the infrastructure and by the use of automated vehicles.

3. Kock, Marcelinio. Proposing An Alternative Framework For Feasibility Studies For Large Public Tourism Investments: A Quantitative Analysis Of The.

Degree: 2007, University of Central Florida

Numerous studies in the hospitality field have focused on the importance of the convention industry to the economic well being of the local tourism industry. Because of intense competition between convention centers, destinations are practicing strategies of expanding their convention facilities and related infrastructure. Unfortunately, many of these expansions appear to have been based on feasibility studies that failed to present rigorous reviews and examinations regarding alleged claims of positive impacts and over-optimistic operational pro-forma statements. The main objective of this study is to propose an alternative framework for feasibility studies, which consists of an updated, rigorous methodology to calculate a more comprehensive picture, on what convention centers can deliver on public and private investment. Data from the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida were used for assessing this proposed framework. Advisors/Committee Members: Hara, Tadayuki.

Subjects/Keywords: Convention Centers; Feasibility Studies; Input-Output Analysis; Tourist Development Tax; Hospitality Administration and Management; Tourism and Travel
