The hospitality industry outlook

After decades of steady growth, the hospitality and travel sectors have seen some challenging times lately, but UNWTO experts predict that the industry will rebound to pre-2019 levels by 2023, due to its resilience and innovation.

The resilience of the hospitality industry has been proven by many past crises (WWII, 911, SARS, 2008 Global Recession). There will always be a big demand for new experiences and a need to travel for education, visits to friends and relatives, and business.
Innovation is a constant driver in the hospitality and tourism industry, so there is:

  • Room for creativity, to re-invent traditional business models
  • Demand for skills to implement innovation and digitalization
  • A need for leadership for sustainability and inclusive green growth

At EHL Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality, we prepare graduates to meet the challenges of tomorrow, and we believe that the future of hospitality and tourism will benefit greatly from the contributions of our graduates.
