The coronavirus pandemic has arguably led to an unprecedented threat to the hospitality industry around the world. But what will recovery look like as we transition in to the ‘new normal’, and beyond? Which are the radical changes being made in advance of hotels opening, and which may be here to stay? What will be the consequences of the increase in domestic travel? And, more pertinently, what does the controversial and recently imposed compulsory two week quarantine for incoming international travellers mean for UK hotels?
Don’t miss our upcoming virtual panel discussion in which we will be delving into these important topics of discussion and many more, for which we are delighted to be joined by the following speakers:

- Yvonne Wissart, Director of Sales at the nhow Hotel, London.
