With Simon Lehmann, AJL Consulting and Robin Coenen, Marketing, Sales and IT Development Manager for Club Villamar
It is clear to us all that all travel and hospitality verticals have been strongly impacted by the current COVID-19 crisis. Everyone is trying their best to save their business and prepare for recovery. The short-term rental industry is expected to be one of the fastest recovering travel verticals, however, we all know that the landscape will have changed tremendously by the time bookings start to return. Watch below for one of our guest speakers, as part of the AJL Profitability Hub online conference, discuss emerging trends for the professional short-term rental industry.
