Hospitality industry data specialist Tophotelprojects has been keeping track of the sector’s response to COVID-19 via its live blog, sharing messages of support from designers and operators along with a selection of pertinent market reports and surveys.

With the hospitality sector proving one of the major casualties in the fight against Coronavirus, there has been an influx of content regarding how best to respond, including strategies for the mitigation of damage, case studies of those adjusting to the disruption of business, and the charting of recovery efforts. Meanwhile, a number of widely-viewed videos from prominent industry executives – including hospitality pioneer Ian Schrager and Arne Sorensen of Marriott International – have kept the community updated throughout this period.

Aggregating these alongside immediate market studies and community opinion, the live blog streamlines this content for a comprehensive overview of how industry and individuals alike are addressing what is perhaps the defining crisis for a generation of hotels.

“This live blog is designed to help our community of investors, developers, brands, architects, designers and suppliers wade through the current climate of uncertainty due to the global spread of the latest coronavirus,” comments Founder and CEO Rolf W. Schmidt on behalf of the Tophotelprojects team. “Let the hotel community know what’s going on with investments, projects and brands – We aim to get a clearer picture of where the hotel industry is affected and where there are signs of a recovery.”
