The hospitality industry was one of the first — and hardest hit — industries grappling with the coronavirus pandemic. Heavy restrictions, shelter-in-place orders and efforts to minimize the spread of this virus forced most to halt operations for an unforeseen time. Many hospitality professionals are asking:

** What strategies exist to weather the COVD-19 storm; right now, mid-term and for when the orders are lifted?
** What technologies are being considered and how will tech help enhance guests’ experience in the new normal?
** What, if any, is an optimal time to consider enhancements?
