His topic will be concentrated on next elements:
· Tripadvisor’s data on consumer sentiment (what people think of how travel will change after the pandemic, how people will want to travel, what they consider will be the “new normal” after the pandemic, what are the aspects they’re looking for when selecting a destination and booking a hotel) – all these data come from surveys we run regularly in some of our key markets globally
· Tripadvisor’s data on traffic (what destinations travellers are looking for, from where we’re seeing spikes in traffic, what type of accommodations travellers are looking for, what range of price, etc.) – all these data are user traffic data on our platform
· What hotel owners can do to adapt their business to the new travel landscape that these data are suggesting us (i.e. be more eco-friendly, propose discounts, how to market themselves as safe to go, how to create a digital strategy that can make them successful, etc.)

The Hospitality industry has always been one of the most demanding industries in the world. Long hours, low wages, a diversity of clients and through all of these challenges, the hospitality professional is expected to do one thing consistently, Smile.
But the world in 2021 is completely different than what it was just 2 years ago. Now, on top of the existing challenges of the industry, a pandemic creeped up on us bringing the industry to a halt, adding more uncertainty, stress and fear than ever before.
All of this has a tremendous effect on the mental health of the staff, the management, the owners and yes, the travellers as well. We have come to a point where the topic of mental health can no longer be ignored by the industry and we are beginning to see the largest brands acknowledge the issue and introduce solution.
Michael Burich is a co-founder of Synctuition, one of the world's most popular mindfulness and audio relaxation apps. With a strong background in hospitality, the company created a product that will help reduce stress and anxiety and make the current climate more manageable.
This app is used by staff, management and the clients themselves. Michael says: "With over 4 million downloads worldwide, I'll happily share all my insight about how to bring back the smiles into your properties".
During his speech he will reveal the following issues: - growth of the hotel brands
- growing demand for short-term rent and rental of luxury villas
- '''if you can't beat them, join them '' - strategies of hotel companies in the fight against short-term rental
- Covid-19 and short-term lease
- Understanding the needs of guests in gaining impressions and positive experiences
