In this unprecedented downturn in travel as a result of Covid-19, the crisis is impacting every hotel company, from the top chains to small hotel operators. Major declines in occupancy & room rates are a global problem, which has forced many hotels to furlough employees & others to shutter, or convert to quarantine centers & host healthcare staff working round-the-clock. As this uncertainty continues, especially in Europe & North America, the likelihood of a strong rebound of occupancy within two or three months seems ever more distant.
Join Skift editors & research analysts, along with leaders from across the hospitality sector to discuss how hotels might prepare now for the long recovery ahead.
