Now in its thirteenth edition, our annual hospitality trends report produced by af&co. and Carbonate has become an industry standard. The report is intended to serve as a guide to help the hospitality industry prepare for the coming year. While 2020 was a year like no other, there is little doubt that many of the actions, sentiments and behaviors initiated during the pandemic will carry forward with lasting effect.
