Once campus live is possible again, individual elements of the simulation can easily be changes to 'live'. By then, you can also use the comprehensive package of promotional materials, with flags, jobs, business cards and more.

As real as it gets!

The game is so special as we have a storyline that is very realistic. The family Bergman has owned the Emerald Forest Hotel for over twelf years now. The CEO Jill Jandal is in charge of the daily operations. Just like all other hotels, being highly ranked on Google's SERP is paramount. The hotel is working on this all the time, as it is working on its social presence.

Social media play an active role in the game. The game is supported by thousands of pictures on Flickr, its own YouTube channel, profiles on Linkedin and much more. Just check the search query EmeraldForestHotel yourself in Google, and you'll see the online presence; this is real virtuality. The game is personalized for each partner, it’s fun and it’s intensive.


The Emerald Forest Hotel is an international management game and is also set in an attractive competition based on profit and on creativity for the management teams taking over the hotel. As the case, a hotel, is well recognizable in any country. As proof of its quality and possibilities, this project also has been part of the European Commission Life Long Learning program in a transfer of innovation project.
