It is a global phenomenon.
But one that has made hotels the centre of the business.
For hotel owners, it is the moment when the business they once were told to manage becomes theirs to manage.
And, as the world waits for the final outcome of the World Trade Organization (WTO) case, it appears the answer to this question is simple.
In a way, hoteliers will be able to go to bed at night knowing that they have a good chance of keeping their business running.
And they will be in the position to make the biggest decision they have ever made.

This is because, as of now, they have no plan to address their business issues, as they have been forced to put off the start of their plans to expand.
There is a sense of disappointment among the industry, however, that no real plan is being developed to solve this, the head of a hotelier’s association told The Irish Independent.
The problem is that the business of hoteliers is not being protected.
If the situation were reversed, hotel owners would be able, with no hesitation, to start planning for their future.
And they would be given the chance to be the ones to decide whether it is safe for their business to expand, or not.
“I do not think that there will be a final solution, but if we had one, I would be happy to work for it,” said Joe McNulty, president of the Association of Hoteliers of Ireland.
“But the current situation has made it difficult to make decisions at this point.”
If you are the owner of a company, then you have to decide, ‘If this is what I want to do, will I be able?’
“In the end, you have the responsibility of your shareholders.
So, the owners of a business must decide what is best for the business, and that is what is happening right now.”
McNulty is one of a number of hotelier associations who have been lobbying for change.
He said that the situation has been extremely difficult for the industry.
“The whole business is at a standstill.
We have no plans at all.
We are waiting for the end of the WTO case.
If that does not happen, I do not know what we will do.
‘I am not in a position to be in charge of my own future'”He said the industry is struggling financially, with revenue down more than a quarter in the last five years, while margins have been reduced by 20 per cent.
He also cited the uncertainty about how much of the hotel industry’s profits are coming in, and how much will be repatriated, as a major challenge.
“In a perfect world, the whole hotel industry would be thriving, and profits would be going into the pockets of the owners.
But it is not.
It is in the hands of the shareholders,” he said.
“I am in a situation where I cannot be in a business that does what I need to do to make sure that my hotel is not the death of the industry.”
He added: “The whole industry is in a state of limbo.
You have to make a decision, but the only way to do that is to go and find a solution that works for the entire industry.”Read more He added that there are a number stakeholders involved in the hotel business, including the hospitality sector, the hotels themselves and the hotel companies themselves.
But he said it is a business with no clear end in sight.
Many of them are in talks with the Government to make progress on their plans.
The head of the Hoteliers Association said that they want to work with the Irish Government to bring clarity to the business and its future.
“We want to make it clear to the Government that this is not a case of a handful of hotel owners who are being told, ‘Go ahead, do what you want, you will make money.'”
“The entire industry needs to be taken forward,” he added.
Mr McNulty said the hotel owners’ association is working with the Department of Finance and Government to develop a framework that could be put in place in the future to address the issues.
A spokeswoman for Minister for Tourism Michael McGrath said: “We welcome the work of the Irish Hoteliers Associations, as this has the potential to create jobs for people across the country.”
