For such, developing countries are doubling their effort to provide solution into their tourism and hospitality opportunities. Bangladesh is a developing country in Asia, which draws interest in the tourism because of its potentials. Moreover, Bangladesh has been an attractive destination for tourists. But at present, its position is not significant in terms of the international tourism market. The overall objective of this research is to identify the issues and challenges in tourism marketing facing Bangladesh (Nazrul, 2009). The hospitality management is in the middle of risky decisions.

Tourism has become a very important and dynamic sector both in the world economy and particular in the developing countries. Its growth affects not only the activities directly linked to tourism but also other sectors. Tourism is already an important sector in some developing countries and will become so for others. Developing countries have been fast growing in tourism industry terms in the world over the last decade. Tourism is one of the most important sectors in a large number of developing countries (Nazrul, 2009).
Apparently, most of the issue being faced by various countries in tourism is the problem with the solid wastes and its management. The solid wastes management requires the organizations to make decisions in terms of the economic, social, environmental and institutional aspects (Visvanathan and Alamgir, 2005). The ongoing development of the tourism and hospitality industry can duly promote the national festivities and heritages as part of the tourism product to welcome the foreign visitors into their culture and create a long-term impression. This idea can definitely increase the rate of return in the country (Rahman, 2008).
The proposed methodology in the study is the use of the secondary information. Through the application of the method, the appropriate techniques that were incorporated by the various hospitality organizations can be an essential tool to help the industry breathe even in the rapid changes in terms of globalization. The method will provide the study an opportunity to measure the effectiveness of each technique and therefore, the study can generate its own analysis regarding the issue on boosting the tourism industry.
