The DECA chapter at the University of Maryland will be hosting the hospitality services event here at UMD. Students should treat the event as a mock case study and use it as an opportunity to refine their skills.
In addition, students will be given the opportunity to win awards and meet with competitive teams from other high schools.
"Participants will have a 30-minute preparation period and may make notes to use during the role-play.
After introductions, the team will begin the 15-minute presentation and present its analysis, its decisions
and the rationale behind the decisions. Following the participants’ presentation and if time remains, the judge may ask questions of the team to determine its understanding of the situation presented. Each member of each team should respond to at least one question. To ensure fairness, the judge must ask each team the same questions. After asking the standard questions, the judge may ask questions for clarification specific to the current team."

Students will have the chance to visit the University of Maryland campus as well as tour the Robert. H. School of Business. They will also get the chance to meet hotel representatives, business professors, deans of the business school, and the current DECA club officers.
