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

Online online event

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.
