What a change a month can bring about.
As hoteliers grapple with the reality that the majority of their venues have been ordered to shut, we are heartened by the resilience and ingenuity of those operators who have quickly pivoted to keep their businesses afloat, and some staff employed.
While this nationwide shutdown will have long-lasting and devastating impacts on the industry as a whole, this sector has bounced back from major challenges before, like no other sector has. And Australian Hotelier will be right here along the journey to help in the best way we know how: by informing and educating operators on opportunities for their business; and by shining a light on the great works of savvy operators.
We hope the content in this issue – which went to print just as the closures were announced, will provide you with the inspiration to start thinking about your business on the other side of this.
Stay safe and keep your spirits up.
