Date Published: January 14, 2021

Happy New Year and welcome back to the Unconstrained Conversations podcast! This week IDeaS’ chief evangelist Klaus Kohlmayr speaks with Charles Wang, IDeaS’ assistant vice president responsible for our regional offices in Beijing and Shanghai. It’s been a full calendar year since the COVID-19 outbreak began in Wuhan, China, delivering a crushing blow to the regional—and soon worldwide—hospitality industry. With the country’s ability to keep the pandemic under control, Charles shares how China’s hotel industry has recovered, what changes occurred and the implications this may have for the rest of the world.
