perspectives state of the industry business sense Graphics by Ashlie Brazelton GOTTA WEAR SHADES A bright future according to HD readers and Lodging Econometrics We keep hearing good things are happening in the industry, but we wanted to make sure. So we checked in from two points of reference-one, through a 12-question survey (from sustainability to hiring plans, and types of projects in the works) of our readers (yes, that's you), and two, by reaching out to our friends at Lodging Econometrics (LE) to cross-reference where they are seeing development. The takeaways: Yes, the hospitality design market is experiencing an undeniable upswing, new construction is coming back, and U.S. projects have arrived-the U.S. made LE's list as one of the top 10 global countries in terms of its construction pipeline. This is the first of a multipart series, so check back in future issues for more revelations and statistics.
