During Covid-lockdown, we’ve had the fantastic opportunity to catch up with park builders, operators and suppliers from around the industry. For some, the way we are working had changed dramatically, and for others, it has been a chance to re-focus, evolve and adapt.
Our insight series CoronaPod: Ask the Industry, takes a deeper look into how Covid-19 has changed the way we work, and how we can all plan for the big ‘bounce back’.
