Abstract: This paper explores the co-creation concept while suggesting that hospitality firms’ orientation towards their customers based on the co-production paradigm has been restricted. Lacuna in the service management literature is explained while highlighting the limitations pertaining to customers’ participation during co-production. The role of hospitality firms as service providers could be reoriented towards service facilitation if co-creation is used to create customer orientation. The characteristics of the service providers and service facilitators are explored and co-creation is explained from a service facilitation perspective.
