WEBINAR:
HOSPITALITY
DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR RESILIENCE & GROWTH

The latest Gensler Design Forecast emphasizes the importance of reconnection in a post-COVID world. The hospitality industry has been among the hardest hit sectors during the pandemic due to the global slowdown in business and leisure travel. The industry now has an opportunity to reinvent itself and rethink the guest experience by reconnecting people with place through human-centric, resilient designs that are responsive to future needs.

In this webinar, Gensler’s Global Hospitality Leaders Tom Ito and Ana Ardon, with Hospitality Resilience Leader Trevor To, discuss how the hospitality industry is reinventing itself through resilient, human-centric designs that bring people back together for new curated experiences.

A panel discussion follows, led by regional Hospitality Leaders Siobhan Barry, Hogan Chun, and Daniel Craner, with Strategy Director Todd Lefelt, Aviation Leader Ty Osbaugh, and Lifestyle Brand Creative Director Denise Korn.
