The first exciting mrp video podcast with Olaf Steinhage and Reiner Nittka (Managing Director GBI) with insights on current and future developments, the changes that await us after the crisis and what we can learn from Corona.
Olaf Steinhage in an exchange with Markus Lewe (Marriott International, Area Vice President Central Europe).
Marriott as the world’s largest hotel company on the current crisis situation: “What we are experiencing now are various crises coming together, at a speed that has broken over us like a tsunami. We have never experienced a dynamic, like in a free fall. (…) We are assuming a very slow but continuous rate of increase.”
Entrepreneurs are becoming even more prudent and are planning on an increasingly short-term basis. Already demanding guests are becoming even more demanding with regard to health and hygiene in the business. The hotel industry in Germany and Austria will, depending on the concept, come out of the crisis with a black eye, but will not or does not want to be a profit driver of the Corona crisis.
