Hospitality Outlook 2021: Hotel Performance, Capital Markets, and Consumer Behavior

Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Virtual Event

Event Overview

All eyes are on the hospitality industry as the recovery is poised to begin. Despite the U.S. market being down 52% in RevPAR for 2020 and a slow start to 2021, the robust stimulus package passed by Congress and accelerating vaccination rates contribute to an optimistic view for the remainder of 2021. From shifts in hotel demand to improvements in the transaction and financial climate from lenders and the equity markets, hoteliers are gearing up for a busy second half of the year. This panel of industry leaders from the Cornell community will discuss the outlook of this pent-up demand as consumers hit the road with more confidence and potentially kick off a true economic recovery.

This online event is brought to you by Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration and the Center for Hospitality Research.
