  • The World’s First Space Hotel Will Open in 2027

    The Space Age began on October 4th, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite. The launch of Sputnik astounded the United States, sparking the creation of Nasa. The two countries were already in the middle of the Cold War, with Sputnik’s launch the race to achieve superiority in space began. The competition led to the rapid development of space capabilities by both countries. This enabled us to put animals and humans in space, send automated probes to the Moon and other planets, and remarkably, less than 12 years after Sputnik, humans managed to walk on the Moon. Now, six decades in, the Space Age is…

  • Pros and cons of working from home

    Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home seemed like a perk that just a small percentage of employees got to enjoy. Now, as we are two years into the pandemic a great number of full-time employees got to experience working from home, for some companies it was a choice between staying at home or working from the office while for some it was due to employer-mandated safety requirements. If you recently joined the ranks of virtual staff due to the pandemic you’ll soon begin to notice that it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. In reality, though, just like working in an office, remote work comes with pros…

  • Sustainability in the hospitality industry

    Sustainability is rapidly becoming the main concern for both the private and public sectors and the hospitality industry is no exception. So what does sustainability even mean? In simple words, sustainability means that the natural ecosystem can continue to support life and provide the resources to meet the needs of present and future generations. First of all, since we are talking about sustainability in the hospitality industry we should check how much does this industry affects the environment? According to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, “tourism contributes about 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions – a figure they expect to grow by 130% by 2035” Meanwhile International Tourism Partnership…

  • 5G IN THE AVIATION INDUSTRY

    Just a few weeks ago we were all witnesses to a catastrophic disruption in the aviation industry amid 5G rollout in some of the USA’s major cities. Fortunately, this disruption only lasted two days. As airline executives breathed in a sigh of relief numerous questions were raised. Why did this happen? Can 5G network interfere with airplane systems? Why did this happen only in the USA? How are other countries preparing for a 5G rollout? How does the aviation industry even benefit from 5G network?  This situation occurred because the Federal Aviation Administration was warned that the 5G network could interfere with an aircraft’s radar altimeters and other vital instruments…

  • Connecting hospitality and fitness industry

    Since the onset of the pandemic an increasing number of professional sportsmen and fitness enthusiasts found themselves trapped in different kinds of quarantine. Staying indoors for such a long period of time without a proper fitness routine can have a significant impact on their future performance. What could hoteliers do to meet the needs of those guests? We would like to point out Hilton’s Five Feet to Fitness program where fitness equipment is brought into the guestroom. This program was introduced few years before the the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic but the pandemic itself only heightended the importance of this program. So why the name Five Feet to Fitness…
