As the dust begins to settle on a sector that has seen extreme challenges over the past four years, what does the future hold for London’s hotel and hospitality sector? 
While London adapts to remain a world-class destination, hotels need to adapt to changing visitor and worker behaviours. Bloomberg reported that London’s tourism in 2021, outpaced Paris, Berlin, Rome, and Barcelona for hotel business however, 2022 has yet to deliver the full return to normalcy With a sector flooded with polarised predictions of recovery and future demand, what are the true updates London’s hotel's sector is seeing?
 
The return of domestic and international visitors to London has been on the rise, but is this recovery fast enough? What are the knock-on effects and changes being witnessed in London’s hospitality sector? How has the sector been transformed for flexible and adaptive working conditions and the rise of the polycentric city? Should we prepare to welcome new digital nomads and is this trend here to stay?
 
Join us for this breakfast talk as we hear key updates from a transforming sector and what the future holds for hotels in London.
