As you can see in our list of top 10 most popular reads list, July saw a huge increase in interest in hospitality industry news. Only Swapcard was able to sneak in at number 3 with a different topic. All other posts are focused on hotels and tourism, perhaps with exception of the Conference News post about Mash Media.
This matches with my own observations that the hospitality industry is yet to get on stable ground and firmly on the path to recovery. Far too many hotels have been starved of guests due to self-isolation and travel restrictions – both domestic and foreign.
As the pandemic comes under control and vaccinations programs continue to make progress, countries should start to open up more and travel will resume. The only stumbling block will be adequate staffing levels, something many other industries are also suffering from.
