Many businesses within the hospitality industry have already been deeply impacted by recent events. This is a sector where 80% halted trading and 1.4 million employees were furloughed at the height of the pandemic.
From the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme and UberEats, JustEats & Co – to booking.com, Wowcher and other platforms – business owners have had to use multiple ways to sustain themselves. But the reality is these platforms or schemes or often damaging to the hotels, restaurants and spas.
But as we emerge from the pandemic and the dust begins to settle, we’ve begun to see behaviour change amongst customers and consumers. We’ve seen people going in and enjoying their local small businesses safely, and we’ve seen our high streets beginning to reinvigorate.
What we’ve learned over the past few weeks is that there is a general trend towards deals and offers. People are worried about their finances, and the uncertainty of the future. But they are also desperate to return to normalility and interact with friends and loved ones after months of restrictions.
As consumers move towards value, those within the hospitality sector must seek to find a ways to set themselves apart in the noise if they are to continue to see the footfall many have enjoyed in times past.
