4) Covid19 hotel development analysis: Hyatt Hotels Corporation
By June, hospitality organisations large and small were urgently seeking data they could trust about the economic fallout from the pandemic, which is what prompted us to release our ‘Covid19 hotel development analysis’ series assessing the situation at the world’s top hotel groups, and this Hyatt-focused article attracted a huge amount of interest.

5) Q4 2020 Covid development update: Hyatt Hotels Corporation
