As humans, we all love to travel and see the world, experience diverse cultures. One of the first things that we do when planning a trip is booking a stay – mostly at hotels and resorts. The professionals who manage the operations of these hotels and resorts are hotel management graduates. Not just for travel, nowadays we also book hotels for business travel, weddings, parties, meetings, conferences, exhibitions, seminars, and so on.
According to a report by Bloomberg, the niche hospitality market that includes meetings, incentives, conferences/conventions and exhibitions, will grow at a compounded annual rate of 7.6% reaching a size of 1439 Billion USD. The growth rate will be low in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 situation, but things will surely start looking up after 2021. Destination weddings and the ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’ are also rising at a brisk pace and there is a lot to look forward to in the future.
So, happy days are ahead for those who are considering a career in hospitality.
