Nigeria and the UK are compared based upon Jones Lang LaSalle’s (2018) assessments of the former as “lowly transparent” (information challenged) and the latter as “transparent” (information sufficient). Methodology: Indicative features of information accessibility in developed markets are used to evaluate Nigeria’s emergent market and the UK’s established market. Results: Information accessibility is vastly better in the UK which generates more information, has better developed sources and more flow channels. However, data challenges also exist in the UK. Nigeria’s situation reveals a low volume of generation, vastly fewer sources and flow channels. Major Conclusions: The volume, sources and flow channels in Nigeria need a vast improvement for accessibility to increase. Originality: This comparative assessment of two property markets at contrasting levels of development contributes to an understanding of some challenges of emergent markets.</p> Ndubisi Onwuanyi Copyright (c) 2021 2021-05-07 2021-05-07 3 1 1 15 Influence of Entrepreneurial Orientation on the Profitability of Real Estate Firms in South West, Nigeria <p>The study examined the effect of Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO) on the profitability of real estate firms in the South West, Nigeria.

Sports have been an important source of motivation for people to participate in tourism movements throughout history. As a result of the development of the internet and the developments in the digital age, the concept of traditional sports has also been affected by this development and the concept of e-Sports (electronic sports), which has been frequently encountered in recent years, has come into our lives. Events including e-Sports matches are watched worldwide today and reach large audiences. The mobility created by the participants from both domestic and abroad to these events also develops the tourism sector by contributing mainly to accommodation, catering, travel and transportation services. This dynamism in the e- Sports market and activities creates a supply source for alternative tourism potential in terms of the tourism industry, and e-Sports tourism is considered to be important in terms of product diversity. The purpose of this article is to examine and introduce the concept of e-Sports, which we come across recently, as a new tourism trend, by technology and computer, which are the outputs of the 21st century.</p> Altan Çetin Mustafa Coşkuner Copyright (c) 2021 2021-05-07 2021-05-07 3 1 28 34
