The covid19 situation has been a messy affair for every single person on the planet, as well as 99% of the world’s businesses. Those businesses hit hardest though have been those who operate in the hospitality sector. Those include bars, cafes, coffee shops, pubs, clubs, restaurants, gyms and other hospitality related businesses who rely on the presence of customers in a physical location to meet their revenue forecasts. Let’s take a look at the situation and the planned reopening for hospitality in April and June 2021, and how we want to help you with your custom made promotional merchandise.
A World Disaster Strikes March 2020!
Covid19 came out of nowhere. News of a local epidemic in Wuhan was spreading and gaining momentum, by around mid February onwards, it was clear this was not just ‘something that happens in another country,’ at least as fas as the West was concerned.
Some media outlets were attempting to paint this as ‘The End Of Times’ and ‘The End Of The World’ and the fear in people, governments and small business was growing, with a calamity bomb detonating to the closure of all small businesses.
Lockdown Looming For Non-Essential Businesses
In times of trouble the first things to go are the “non essentials’ and this include the hospitality sector. Places where large numbers of people would gather to either socialise, work, keep fit and generally meet in large numbers in public spaces.
Hospitality businesses have had it tough, having to reinvent their business models, rewrite their business plans weekly to navigate unchartered waters as well as survive on the limited handouts from a flawed tory government (if at all they were eligible)!
Light At The End Of The Tunnel!
Late February 2021, it was announced that the economy, as well as the country would slowly be reopened. In England at least:
- 12 April –Restaurants and pub gardens will be allowed to serve customers sitting outdoors – including alcohol; customers can meet in a group of up to six people from different households; a maximum of two households can meet to form a group of any size
- 17 May – Hospitality venues can seat customers indoors; parties can be made up of a maximum of six people or two households of any size; groups seated outside must be smaller than 30 people
- 21 June – All restrictions will be lifted, and nightclubs will be allowed to re-open
Once again the hospitality sector will be putting everything in place to get ready for “The Great Return” of 2021.

Differentiate to Stand Out With Custom Made Promotional Merchandise
2020 was a blow to everyone and every business. It was the year to reinvent… Reinvent just about everything. Ourselves, our businesses and the way we work. 2021 has to be more meaningful, things have to last longer and be less wasteful as we all transition into a hopefully much better world.
Covering Lost Ground With Creative Promotional Merchandise
We firmly believe that hospitality businesses need to make up for lost ground and that it is about much more than just selling more products or services, it’s about being there for your customers, showing them how your business or brand can help them change the way they live and consume. And this is why BRAND is more important than ever. Brands don’t sell ‘things’, they sell ideas to inspire change. We hope you can be part of that change!
