COVID-19's effects go against everything
hospitality stands for: human connection. As
the world comes back together physically, the
question becomes, "What is needed to reboot
our industry?" Through interviews and reports,
we examine how cruises, restaurants, and
hotels are adapting to, and finding opportunity
in, this new reality.

Uncertainty and economic despair continue to
besiege businesses around the world as a result
of the COVID-19 pandemic, with tourism and
hospitality among the hardest hit industries.
According to the World Tourism Organization,
a United Nations specialized agency, international
tourism could decline by up to 80 percent in 2020.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Travel Association indicates
that a $519 billion decline in national travel
spending this year will yield a total loss of $1.2
trillion in economic output, more than nine times
the impact of 9/11 on travel sector revenue.
Despite the grim statistics, Roger Dow,

president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association,
believes "travel will come back faster than we
think. After 9/11, people said they wouldn't travel
internationally again. Then, the Great Recession
was followed by 10 of the best years for hotels."
There are other glimpses of optimism,
including Dow and his team's efforts to
implement a tax-deductible domestic travel
credit. Additionally, according to a May edition of
the U.S. Travel Association and MMGY Travel
Intelligence's TIPS report, as states reopen, 68
percent of travelers say they feel safest in a vehicle
of their own. This bodes well for road trips,
especially to open-space locations like beaches and
national parks.
Crucially, the report shows that safety is far
more valuable than price deals. Pent-up, curious
travelers will be more apt to take cruises, dine out,
and stay at hotels if they have peace of mind that
these settings are prioritizing their health above
all else, especially before a vaccine or treatment is
widely available.
But owners, operators, and designers have
a seemingly confounding task before them:
providing consistency against a backdrop riddled

with unknowns. Combining heightened hygiene
practices and touchless technology with intentional
design, all the while continuing to showcase their
brands' distinctive personalities without wavering
from the notion of human connection, will be a
tough but necessary maneuver.
Priorities were shifting before the pandemic,
with travelers desiring the meaningful than
the rote. Markus Schreyer, vice president of
the Americas at Design Hotels, which has 350
member properties, expects that mindset to
expand. "Guests seek sanctuaries where they can
give back and learn something." A hotel's aim,
he adds, has to be bigger than just checking into
a room.
Adam Rolston, creative and managing
director and partner at New York's INC
Architecture & Design, sees this moment as an
accelerator, not a disruptor. Coming from an age
of excess, he foresees the rise of human-centered
design strategies rooted in sustainability and
wellness that reaffirm people's "relationship to the
real world. How things feel emotionally and
to the touch are going to be as important as how
they look."
