It’s been a little over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Lots of change has occurred in many different industries since that time and the hospitality industry is no exception. People stopped traveling as frequently, didn’t go out to restaurants, and many large events like concerts and sports games were cancelled. With vaccines getting distributed, it looks like life is slowly beginning to return to normal. This is great news for property managers, innkeepers, and others working in the hotel, lodging, and rental property section of the hospitality industry. With so many people choosing to not take a vacation over the past year, many experts are predicting a large volume of guests to be booking reservations at properties this coming summer. This blog will explain how travel and guest stays are returning to normal, the emergence of short-term rental properties, and how a new demand for other types of businesses will form.
