Hospitality industry is predominantly a people-based industry and for simple reasons, in India, it makes up a major part of the working population. The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key drivers of growth among the services sector in India. Although, these facts and figures are bound to take a dip in the wake of these unfortunate events. COVID-19 has posed an unprecedented situation in front of governments across the globe. The fight is to find a balance between people-safety and the economy of a nation. Amidst this chaos, the hospitality industry and hotels have been hit the hardest and the impact is absorbed by hoteliers and hospitality professionals across the globe. In times of social distancing and lockdowns, who would be looking for a hotel stay?
Hoteliers on the other hand have a range of situations to deal with. In addition to the common inconveniences faced by a citizen, hospitality professionals find themselves struggling with a volatile career ahead of them. Recovery plans for a ‘post-Covid’ world are being designed by industry experts with every passing day, as new findings are uncovered. It's not that a hotelier worry ends at lay-offs, pay-cuts and furloughs. Amongst many popular opinions and expertise, stands the probability of reducing and replacing hospitality services to minimize human contact. Suggestions about virtual Check-ins and even virtual escapism are making rounds across the internet. All these developments are bound to make hoteliers worry about the possibilities in future. Hotels are going to hit a rough path before recovery is made, at least partially, and with them the hoteliers.
