The hospitality industry is a diverse subsector of the service industry, incorporating everything from hotels and restaurants, to casinos and cruise lines. Worldwide, the hospitality sector continues to grow from strength to strength. Chains – especially restaurants and coffee shops – are expanding globally, and consumers are spending record amounts in bars and restaurants. The hotel sector is growing steadily, benefitting from growth in the travel and tourism sectors, as the middle class continues to grow in emerging economies across the continents.
Technological change, principally the rise of online booking, apps and social media, has created new opportunities, enabling forward-thinking businesses to capitalise on new business models. This diverse and exciting industry is evolving rapidly.
