On Monday, 18 January 2021, industry experts discussed the topic:
Gastronomy and the hotel industry as catalysts of urban development: the crisis as an opportunity or final shutdown?
The corona virus poses massive problems for the gastronomy and hotel industry: The approximately 200,000 businesses in the industry lost an estimated ten billion euros in turnover already by the end of April 2020. The ongoing pandemic and the second “hard lockdown” are now once again hitting with full force an industry that has been fighting for survival for months.
The restrictions in the hospitality industry could have irreversible consequences for our cities: Tourism, the bar and pub scene, the cultural life of the big city have largely come to a standstill. A forced pause has been imposed on the pulsating metropolises.
How long can this continue? How do empty and closed pubs and hotels change our cities? What solutions and ideas are there to get out of the crisis?
