What will 2021 bring?

In particular, for our hospitality industry it’s a big question.

This is a collection of conversations that I had across a time period that spanned lockdown to the end of 2020 to find out the different approaches our hospo folk are taking in New Zealand, and how they are feeling about their future. I also wanted to take the opportunity to recognise their impressive work through immense challenges and celebrate some wins.

One thing is for sure, we can no longer take great hospitality or the talented teams behind a great experience for granted. It’s time for us as customers to really think about those experiences and truly value the places that deserve our support.

A massive thank you to this group of extremely talented hospo professionals for generously sharing some straight-up thoughts…
