The pandemic has made it difficult to safely hold in-person meetings, which the travel industry has thrived on in the past, but one hotel representative has found an innovative solution: Buy a custom Winnebago camper and drive it around the country, holding meetings for advisors at the properties he represents and sometimes even in advisors' driveways.

On the operator side, there will have to be new consideration for deposits, how those funds are spent and when, as well as a revisit of cancellation policies and fees.
