KUCERA hosts the Montagsgesellschaft. Topic: Hotels and Gastronomy in the Corona Crisis

On Monday, 25.05.2020, from 19:30, industry experts will discuss the topic:

Hotels & gastronomy in the Corona crisis: hope in sight or wave of bankruptcies ahead?

The coronavirus poses massive problems for the hotel and catering industry: The approximately 223,000 companies in the sector lost an estimated ten billion euros in turnover by the end of April. Around 70,000 hotel and catering businesses are said to be facing insolvency in the corona crisis, with small and medium-sized businesses in particular having little or no financial buffer.

A gradual reopening of the hospitality industry has been decided, but how this is to be achieved in practice will probably only become clear in the coming weeks. It is also questionable how many Germans will book overnight stays and visit restaurants again in their usual form.

What is the actual situation in the local hotel and restaurant industry? What is the next step? What solutions and ideas from the crisis are there?

On the panel are:

Julius Wagner, Chief Executive Officer, Hotel- und Gastronomieverband DEHOGA Hessen e.V.

Rolf Westermann, Chief Editor, ahgz Allgemeine Hotel- und Gastronomie-Zeitung

Matthias Frank, Partner Practice Group Hospitality, Kucera Rechtsanwälte
