As the tourism sector began to recoverfrom the pandemic's grasp the latest Omicron variant struck making the future prospectsas grim as possible. Thus businesses in the industry are coming up with new and uniqueways to attract travellers and tourists from all over the world in order to stem thelosses.

Here are some future trends in the hospitality and travel industriesthat experts are heavily betting on:.

CONTACTLESS HOSPITALITY SERVICES

In the aftermath of the epidemic guests' top priorities aresanitation safety and contactless services in most locations. As a response the playersin this industry are embracing technology at a rapid speed in order to keep up with theindustry's changing expectations. Everything is now done online with little to nointeraction with personnel from check-in to check-out upsells and cross-sells menu toin-stay service.

THREATS

The hospitality industry struggled in 2021 to make a comeback after thefallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. As 2022 and COVID's third year begin.

It's not getting any easier. Finding qualified people is a struggle atall levels for hotels and restaurants. Tech investment can make up for some of the gapbut also heightens the risk of cyber exposure. Meanwhile business travel is stillflagging and indoor mask mandates in many regions can serve as a flash point.

The implications of it all aren't lost on insurers. It's increasinglycommon for underwriters to make on-site inspections of properties and check social mediareviews for signs of potential risk. How restaurants are managing rising alcohol sales isalso under scrutiny as is the diligence of hotels in taking COVID safety measures.
