With summer in full swing, and more than 75 per cent of Canadians now vaccinated with their first dose and close to 40 per cent fully vaccinated, hoteliers are taking their first tentative steps on the road to recovery. In this summer edition of Hotelier magazine, we showcase the Top 35 hotel companies, ranking the top-performing hotel companies of 2020 while looking back at a year that brought the industry to its knees. We also examine the Meetings and Events market to discern how hybrid events are key to moving forward in a post-COVID era and we take a look at how hoteliers are re-thinking their F&B strategies. Additionally, this month’s issue features two profiles – one on Toronto’s re-branded 1 Hotel in Toronto to find out how it overcame pandemic challenges and open its doors during a tumultuous time and the other on Choice Hotels to ascertain how it managed to do well, even during a pandemic ─ this, and so much more, in this summer edition of Hotelier. Happy Reading and enjoy the summer!
