WATCH NOW: 2021 TREND REPORT 

"DO THE HUSTLE"

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. 

“Do The Hustle” reflects the incredible energy, stamina and creativity we have seen hospitality leaders adopt, and how nimble they will continue to be in 2021.
