Two Chicks, Three Seats Episode 69: The Current State of the Hospitality and Events Industry with Jonathan Morse


The hospitality and events industry has gone through many evolutions in the past two years, but it is amazing to see events come back with a boom. Social events have exceeded expectations with their return, and corporate events starting to make their way back as well. We love to see our Tripleseat customers with booked calendars, new ideas, and big plans for the future of events through 2022.

While we are seeing all of these positives in the industry right now, there are some realities of the state of the industry we should still keep in mind. Staffing challenges, the impending talks of a recession, and supply chain issues are elements that just about every business inside and outside the hospitality industry has an eye on right now.

We wanted to call in an experienced hospitality and events industry professional to reflect on the current state of the hospitality and events industry with us. And there is no one better for the job than the man who founded Tripleseat.

On the latest episode of Tripleseat’s podcast, Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I are joined by Jonathan Morse, Tripleseat’s Founder and CEO, to discuss the current state of the hospitality and events industry. Specifically, we cover topics like event trend data, the current economy’s impact on the hospitality industry, hot takes on events in the Metaverse, generating extra revenue through catering, and what Tripleseat customers can expect next from the product. Tripleseat customer or not, this is an insightful episode for anyone in the hospitality industry right now.
