According to a recent flash report, survival is the goal for now, but in the future, the hospitality and hotel industry could suffer from a chronic labor shortage, as the sector has lost much of its popularity among young people as career choices, writes leading business daily Világgazdaság.
According to the trends report of the Association of Hungarian Hotels and Restaurants at the end of March, the number of guest nights fell by almost 40% in 2020 compared to the previous year.
In November, the fall was even more dramatic, at almost 90% compared to a year earlier. As many were forced to find work elsewhere, the big question is how many will return to the sector.
