As we head into a new year, heads are turning towards the future of the hotel industry. With the potential arrival of a Covid-19 vaccine, hoteliers will have to regroup and rebuild to bring in guests once tourism begins to gain steam. But what are the key trends that hoteliers and guest should expect to encounter in the year ahead? We find out.

Also, we take a look at two new technology solutions from TripAdvisor, which could help hoteliers make data-driven decisions to restore traveller confidence and attract new customers; examine what hoteliers can do to attract top industry talent once the Covid-19 pandemic comes to an end; and investigate whether the ‘working from home’ trend currently making waves in hotels is here to stay.

Plus, we take a look at some of the most notable hotel openings and design concepts hitting the market and get the latest insight and analysis from GlobalData.
