We want to highlight the kindness, compassion and willingness from all our friends across the industry, who have stepped up to support others in these unprecedented times.
Since late February 2020, the team at Avvio have been tracking the impact the COVID-19 Coronavirus has had on online search across the hospitality industry. We want to ensure that when the upturn starts and the appetite for travel resumes, we are fully prepared and ready to help our customers.
In an effort to give back to the industry and to help Hospitality Individuals to upskill, Avvio has launched a Hotel Digital Academy. The Academy is a free online digital marketing course tailored specifically to the Hospitality Industry.
The world over is seeing a significant if not catastrophic downturn in business. As more countries go into lockdown, the whole hospitality sector is in limbo and we need to think about how we can help support your business.
Understandably guest’s travel plans will continue to be hugely disrupted over the coming weeks and months. We are working hard to support not only our existing hotel customers through an exceptionally trying time, but also the wider hospitality industry. The most critical and timely issue we are attempting to tackle is ‘how can hotels ‘keep the lights on’ and continue bringing revenue into their business?’
The UK Chancellor’s first budget today predictably focused on measures to reassure and provide financial recompense and we welcome the announcement on business rates targeted to support the hospitality sector.
