Leisure & hospitality trends

The pandemic has adversely disrupted the leisure and hospitality industry with multiple lockdowns forcing companies to pivot their business models to survive. Key trends include:

Managing accumulating debt combined with low revenues and increasing rent costs.

Preparing for rapid demand and greater working capital need as restrictions ease.

Consolidation due to prior overexpansion and cost-burden of the ‘new normal’ and staff shortages.

Implementing contactless interactions through mobile apps and Near Field Communication (NFC)

Upgrading hygiene and safety measures to offset customer concerns.

Adoption of smart, internet-connected systems to minimise contact points.
