ABSTRACT

This study attempted to analyze the impact of inter-dependent relations on the hotel industry in Korea. The hypotheses, which were built on the strategic network theory, were examined to identify how the hotels would enhance their performance when embedded in inter-firm networks, and to clarify the argument about the different forms of competitiveness between density and structural holes. Through conceptual and empirical tests, this study determined that hotels that grew in effective size in non-redundant networks achieved competitive advantages in their performance.
