The Hospitality Industry’s Road to Recovery
Feb 12, 2021 9:00 AM in Central Time (US and Canada)
Many industries have suffered greatly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the hospitality sector is among the hardest hit. Those within the industry have faced unprecedented challenges and have had to move swiftly to adapt to the “new normal”. After experiencing a period of almost complete shutdown in the global hospitality industry, things are looking up as vaccines have started to be distributed. However, as public health restrictions begin to be lifted and the economy reopens, the hospitality sector might find itself changed. Will there be new customer behaviors? And will hospitality businesses be able to make a recovery in a post-pandemic environment?
Topics to be discussed in this webinar include:
- Lending (conventional, SBA, liquidity market)
- CMBS borrowers in the hospitality space
- Shift in customer behavior as a result of the pandemic and navigating challenges as the market opens back up
