Shock, then strategy: HOTELS top stories for March

Not surprisingly, HOTELS top stories for March centered around one topic: the coronavirus and its devastating impact around the globe. What’s happening now, what are hoteliers saying – and where do we go from here?

Top stories this month all tackled those questions. In the top spot was a contribution by Catherine Monthienvichienchai, chief branding officer at Bangkok-based QUO, asking perhaps the biggest question of all. Others, including an owner-operator, Marriott International and AJ Capital’s founder, focused on shorter and long-term strategy. And in our fifth spot, some practical advice about how to navigate the ongoing impacts of your business.
