Issue 5 ∙ March 2021

Welcome to a new issue of The New Hotelier. It’s been a challenging year for many in the hotel industry, but with vaccine rollouts underway it looks like there is light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel in 2021.

There will, of course, be elements of the pandemic that continue to impact the industry in the early stages of the year that present both opportunities and challenges for hoteliers. One such challenge is to attract the next generation of food and beverage, housekeeping and managerial staff. As hotels begin to reopen, they will need trained employees that can help hotels regain guest confidence. However, as demand for staff members grows, what can hoteliers do to entice top talent? We find out.

Also, we examine the ongoing trend of hot desking hotels, where rooms can be rented for short periods of time as substitute ‘work-from-home’ office spaces, talk to Tripadvisor about the company’s new digital platforms that are designed to help boost confidence in the travel sector, and round up the biggest trends and trials that hoteliers may encounter over the coming year.

For all this, plus the latest insight and analysis from GlobalData experts, read on.
