Editor’s Letter: We’ve got your back
As the industry tackles one of its greatest ever threats, Claudia de Brito reassures Hotelier Middle East is here to support the hospitality sector
There's no way to sugar-coat it. The hospitality industry is facing its biggest challenge in living memory. But we're here to support you. And just like you, we aim to come out the other side of this fighting.
We're working every day to bring you the latest developments, industry data and analysis from the COVID-19 fallout across our digital platforms, along with response advice from trade bodies and industry leaders.
In short, we will have all the information you need as we all try to weather these unchartered waters, and we'll continue to promote and champion the industry's successes, as always.
It's times like this when we need to band together, and it's been heartening to see so many people sharing ideas, knowledge and skills during these tough weeks. Innovations such as Bench Events' virtual Hospitality Tomorrow conference (to be held on April 7) are just what we need.
Chairman and founder of Bench Events, Jonathan Worsley said: "we need to come together to discuss the best strategies to plan how to capitalise on the recovery when it comes", and he's correct, it will come.
Hopefully those who have lost their jobs, or even their businesses, will be able to pick up the pieces on the other side and can get back to doing what you do best - making this region a shining example of what the hospitality industry can achieve.
Wishing you and your loved ones the best of health.
