Hospitality Innovation and Resilience During Uncertainty

The proposed SI is expected to host relevant multidisciplinary studies with special reference to hospitality innovation and resilience during times of uncertainty.  Its aim is to highlight the influence of specific conditions (e.g. new consumer trends; brand management; innovative processes and organisational resilience) and events (e.g. pandemics, political instability; economic crises) that substantially influence the hospitality industry during uncertainty. Its objectives focus on: (i) the better understanding of the dynamic aspects influencing innovation and resilience processes during times of uncertainty, (ii) the use of specific policies and strategies (i.e. sustainable development practices; marketing and advertising; IT and ICT) for influencing the impacts of ever-changing conditions and (iii) the provision of innovative methodologies and research tools for resilience within hospitality.
