Marloes Knippenberg, CEO of Kerten Hospitality
Play • 19 min

In the latest instalment of The Future of Travel, David and Catherine speak to Marloes Knippenberg, CEO of Kerten Hospitality. She believes in a post-Coronavirus world the ‘new normal’ will see travellers, particularly the younger generation, ask many more questions about supply chains and sourcing, as well as how organisations looked after their team during the crisis.

While Marloes is unsure about the future of social spaces in hotels, she does believe there is a great opportunity for mixed-used concepts—combining living, working, F&B and retail—because people will want to be in an environment with everything nearby.

In terms of Kerten’s own portfolio, temporary slowdowns in some markets are balanced by new signings and openings going ahead in Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
