The one and a half meter regulation has many hospitality entrepreneurs scared of opening their doors again May 20th. Art and culture institution Mediamatic is going to test safe 'quarantine greenhouses' in which guests can dine.
Willem Velthoven, founder and director of Mediamatic, is annoyed by colleagues in the industry who are calling it impossible to be good hosts at 1.5 meters distance. "It may be difficult for large hospitality entrepreneurs with businesses that revolve around peak rushes and mass-turnover. But there is a whole other part of the hospitality industry which is about attention, taking the time and care. These businesses are far less threatened. We are an example of that."
