Regional Executives to Discuss the Future Scenario for the Hotel & Tourism Business in An In-Person Conference

As the World Faces the End of the 2 Year Pandemic Cycle, the Words of the Experts on Where the Best Business Opportunities Lay Become Vital for Many.

USA, Miami, Florida. March 08, 2022

As we enter the full 2-year cycle of the hit of COVID and face what's understood to be the ending phase of the pandemic, the hospitality industry enters- like many others - a moment to embrace change and redefinition.

Some of the keys for a successful rebuilding process? Data intelligence; strategic moves; incorporated modern technology; greater collaboration across the value chain; sustainability and ‘out of the box' business models.

The bigger opportunity for the industry lies in a framework where all the different players articulate to work together. Thus the importance for the region on the coming up edition of one of the most renowned conferences that, for over 15 years, has gathered the main names in the sector.

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
