perspectives state of the industry business sense Graphics by Ashlie Brazelton HIGH MARKS The view is still rosy, say HD readers and Lodging Econometrics Last year, we conducted a survey of our readers (that's you) and compared your thoughts to data from our friends at Lodging Econometrics (LE) to get a pulse on our industry. The results confirmed the positive things we'd been hearing, so we wanted to see if the good vibes had carried over to this year. We went back to our sources, and it seems as though things are looking even better: More firms are hiring, almost all people polled still think the hospitality design industry is in an upswing (which some think could continue for the next two decades), and the U.S. is once again one of the top 10 global markets in terms of construction pipeline, according to LE. Check out the specifics below, and stay tuned for even more results in future issues. Is your firm hiring now, or has it hired in the last 6 months? 2015 1 41% 2014 59% 50.1% 49.9% Source: Hospitality Design Reader Survey, March 2015 65% 61.5% U.S. 2015 INTERNATIONAL 2015 23% 16% 3% 2% 4% 9% 6% 4% 0.5% 0% 1-10% 2% 3% 11-25% 26-50% 51-75% 76-99% 100% 2% U.S. 2014 PERCENTAGE OF PROJECTS 0% 1-10% 2% 2% 1% 11-25% 26-50% 51-75% 76-99% 100% 1% 4% 5% 5% 14% 22% 10% 9% INTERNATIONAL 2014 30% 31% 62% Source: Hospitality Design Reader Survey, March 2015 May 2015 123
