Key challenges in the sector

Hospitality & Leisure has arguably been the most severely hit sector over the last few years.

Whilst the sector has shown some signs of recovery since Brexit and COVID-19, disruption has continued with inflation, higher interest rates and ongoing labour shortages. Rising living costs are impacting consumer choices, and meaningful ESG policies are proving increasingly important for attracting consumers and employees alike.
