The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been intense and far-reaching. From the devastating loss of life to the economic impact of industries being brought to a grinding halt, the vast majority of people across the world have been impacted by this crisis in one way or another. As we begin to emerge from several months of quarantine, it’s encouraging to see venue operators take careful steps to reopening safely. We are all entering an age that redefines the norms to which all of us had become accustomed – a time that will most surely be defined as a “new normal,” if not a “new abnormal.” Guest expectations will most certainly change, and operators will be faced with the challenge (and opportunity) to meet and exceed those re-shaped expectations. Read on to discover 4 trends that we predict will emerge from the age of social distancing, and what they mean for your venue.
