Leisure opportunities: What next?
As leisure operators work out how best to entertain visitors while ensuring their safety and security, an industry that had been riding high is having to reset how it does things in a COVID-19 environment and beyond. Above all, formats are being redesigned and rethought to adapt to changing visitor priorities, while still creating the socialisation and fun that makes them attractive places to visit.
David Bell, head of global leisure, Savills, says that the leisure industry was also caught by the sudden nature of the lockdown and many destinations did not have any simple routes to adapt their offers. “COVID-19 brought an abrupt stop for the leisure industry and there was little ability to pivot the offer, compared with F&B for example,” he says. “Obviously there will be casualties but we are also seeing real innovation in this space, such as Netflix buying the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, online streaming of entertainment and the Secret Cinema and Disney tie-up. We’ve also seen this new thinking in the fitness arena and in areas such as e-gaming.”
