However, we can think of this scenario as a pause and not as a full stop. Countries will bounce back and economies will also grow with positivity and hope for future. Hospitality industry depends more on tourism and travel industry which has been hampered by the pandemic. However, there is certainly a silver lining in the future for the industry.
In a recent webinar held on hospitality in Nagpur, experts believe that hotel industry is looking at sea change in the way it operates post lockdown. Although the current time is tough, both the overall economy and hospitality sector will bounce within a year, opined the experts.

Hotels have become more thoughtful about their customers and are taking their reviews into considerations. Although, the recent scenario has been affecting the growth curve, hotels have already been taking measures to combat the dreaded disease.
