The State of The Hospitality Nation

Report | Interviews with senior leaders into the current outlook of the UK’s hospitality sector.

In partnership with MAPAL and Propel.


Propel and KAM have carried out a deep-dive research study into the current outlook of the UK’s hospitality sector. The survey, which is produced in association with Mapal Group, sought to examine the key issues currently impacting the industry, whilst also looking ahead to what the next 12 months might bring. This research will allow businesses to benchmark their performance and experiences against the wider sector.

The results of this extensive research are laid out over the course of this report, and includes in-depth case studies from some of those who took part. It highlights long-term factors that the sector is still getting to grips with, including recruitment and retention and rental values, but also the threat from current challenges around energy costs, a delivery market in a state of flux, and under-pressure supply chains.
