To celebrate AccorHotels 50th Anniversary last 19th of November, 2017, more than 2,000 hotels across the globe opened their doors to everyday heroes – men and women who are firefighters, nurses, teachers, craftspersons and local shopkeepers – who work every day to serve their communities. The group saw the occasion as an opportunity for hoteliers and their employees, which are also deeply involved in the life of the neighborhood, to thank them and share a moment with them.
Novotel & ibis World Trade Centre and ibis One Central took part in the festivity and invited local heroes in Dubai.
“We believe heroes are the unsung individuals who are the backbone of our community, loved ones and families. This was our chance to give back to them in appreciation for their hard work every day. “ – Tyrone Lodder, Hotel Manager for ibis One Central & ibis World Trade Centre
Among the organizations who attended the event were the Dubai Police and Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services. The cluster hosted a gala dinner function by the pool with a sumptuous buffet and live barbecue stations.
Frederic Gitzner, Cluster General Manager for Novotel & ibis World Trade Centre and ibis One Central, also handed over awards to the organizations to give recognition to all their contributions to the community.
