Covid-19 research in hospitality and tourism

Our lives and our industry have been deeply impacted by the pandemic and the global lockdown that came with it. In these unprecedented times researchers at SHTM have worked closely with industry to learn about the needs and requirements of businesses and travellers to be able to return to a new normality when it comes to travelling and the prosperity of businesses. We are dedicated to support the hospitality, tourism, events, transport industry and related sectors with our research and wish to share it as widely as possible.


Within the Centre of Research and Enterprise, we are globally recognised for providing industry-specific business services and educational programmes in hospitality, tourism, events and transport management.
