Staff shortages in the hotel and catering trade

Every year 7.5 million holidaymakers flock to South Tyrol. Many locals also enjoy the high-value free time here and go out more often than previously. But who is to serve all these guests?

In the high season, bars, hotels and restaurants nowadays need an army of 38,000 waiters, cooks, maids, etc. – twice as many as 20 years ago. While guests still seem to come unbidden, the hospitality industry is finding it increasingly difficult to attract staff: even more so than other industries.

Why? And where will this end? This is what this special exhibition is all about. In the course of it, you too, dear visitor, will also have to try it for yourself: a job in the hospitality industry awaits. So good luck!
