The hospitality management has been more challenging than ever before. With the new emerging business ideas such as accommodation and personal home sharing services, the regular hotels have been challenged to fill their rooms. Based on a research conducted by MarketWatch the hospitality management market is expected to reach a value of more than $29 Billion USD by 2026. With the current changes, private homeowners getting into the hospitality market, a new term, Smart Hospitality Management (SHM), is being used to refer the whole market that encompasses the regular, hotels, event centers, cruise lines etc. and the accommodations offered by private owners.
