Webinar #1

UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management’s Dick Pope Sr. Institute for Tourism Studies conducted a study explicitly tailored to understand the economic impact and coronavirus COVID-19 related challenges faced by small, independent Florida hotels, and bed and breakfasts.

This study has three pivotal goals:

  1. Quantify the economic contributions of small, independent Florida hotels (including their direct and indirect impacts) on Florida’s economy. This data will show how valuable these businesses are to their communities and the State of Florida;
  2. Quantify the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the operations and finances of these businesses; and
  3. Provide recommendations to small lodging properties to aid in their recovery

From that study a webinar series was developed to share information with our industry partners. The webinar series provides strategic business information to prepare and support business leaders for the post Covid-19 world. The series discuss different post Covid-19 scenarios, sharing current research-based information and perspectives, which could potentially impact businesses.

This study is unique because it will show the value of small, independent lodgings to Florida’s economy and community.
