Every day we are somebody’s guest or host. We travel abroad, visit friends, or welcome new staff to our organization. Hospitality is omnipresent.

As a result of mass tourism, the rise of the hospitality industry and the Covid-19 pandemic, the spontaneous cordiality of times past is said to have been replaced by commercial considerations, pragmatism and prescribed codes of conduct.
