In the third session of Hotel Designs LIVE, editor Hamish Kilburn was joined by hoteliers from around the world in St Lucia, France, Zimbabwe and the UK to ask how we will reassure tomorrow’s travellers in a post-pandemic world…
In the second edition of Hotel Designs LIVE, sponsored by Technological Innovations Group in association with Crestron, editor Hamish Kilburn returned to host a number of panel discussions and interviews with the aim to keep the conversation and the industry connected.
With the pandemic on everyone’s agenda, the third session of the day – sponsored by Room To Breathe UK – was a hotelier special that virtually checked in to hotels around the world to understand the impact Covid-19 is having on global hospitality and possible solutions when re-engaging with tomorrow’s travellers.
On the panel:
- Karolin Troubetzkoy, Co-Founder of Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain (St Lucia)
- Kimberley Cohen, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Maison Pariente (France)
- Sam Ghosh, Vice President of Operations at STAY (London)
- Sara Gardiner, Co-Founder of Matetsi Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)
- Chaired by Hamish Kilburn, editor of Hotel Designs.
The session, followed recent studies that suggested that the post-corona consumer will be hesitant to re-explore the hospitality scene, looked at how tomorrow’s hospitality arenas can effectively and sensitively reassure modern travellers that hotels are safe spaces.
We join the panel discussion as Kilburn introduces the session sponsor and speakers (the conversation starts at 02:26 in the video)…
The recording of the final session, The revival of smart tech post-pandmeic, will go live shortly.
