The chart above is a snapshot taken from the Huq Daily Index for Hilton Hotels in China, which measures the amount of footfall activity observed by our platform across Hilton Hotels nationally. The chart shows a rise in activity of 382 points from the index start date on Feb-8 2020.

This event coincides exactly with the date at which the final restrictions on movement within the country have been lifted, and offers an indication as to the potential rate of recovery for businesses within the Chinese hotels industry.
