Global circumstances over the past few years have led to evolution and disruption in many industries. Perhaps no industry was more affected by the pandemic and the changes it forced on us than the Hospitality Industry. Some properties weathered the storm, others learned to adapt in different ways, while some didn't survive. More than ever Technology has the possibility to differentiate and improve the guest experience.
Topical trends include, among other things, sustainability, health and wellness, and a surge in "revenge travel" that can often mean higher than expected rates.
With Thailand forecasting over 30mio foreign arrivals in 2023, and with the return of outbound travel from China likely to return strongly in 2024, we will be on pace to start 2025 looking toward moving well past the 40mio foreign arrivals we saw pre-covid in 2019.
How will the current Trends shape the Hospitality industry in the years to come? Will Bleisure/Workcation create any long lasting changes? Will a property's sustainability efforts give it a competitive advantage? What are the skills required for the industry's future professionals?
Join the Spanish-Thai Chamber for a dive into these and other topical issues to understand trends, issues and developments in the Hospitality Industry.
