The restrictions in operating venues have forced most hospitality businesses to furlough staff and cease trading. However, many have been able to continue operating by adopting or growing their use of digital – from ecommerce to virtual experiences.
As we emerge from Covid-19 and more businesses begin to open up again, digital will play a far more central role than ever before. Mobile ordering, touchless digital interfaces and continued engagement outside of physical visits will be more commonplace.
Two webinars have been hosted for TRADE and LUX members so far. Watch the full recordings here:
- How Covid-19 changes everything: Digital’s new leading role – April 2020
- What now? Resuming hospitality businesses in a socially-distanced world – May 2020
The latest webinar featured a panel with Paul Pavli (hospitality consultant and ex-MD of Punch Taverns), Anthony Pender (Yummy Pub Co founder), Simon Potts (Alchemist group MD) and Kate Moses (KAM Media). Discussion from the insightful session was featured in Harpers.
Rewrite Digital have also offered all TRADE and LUX members and attendees with a free 30 minute digital consultation.
A regular programme of online events featuring Rewrite Digital is expected to continue into throughout the second half of 2020.
