Housekeeping Forum: Cleaning up
The seventh edition of the Executive Housekeeper’s Forum, which will be held at Dubai’s Grosvenor House, is quickly approaching and we can now reveal the event’s agenda
Held on the 19 June 2019, the forum will comprise panel discussions to talk about a range of topics that are affecting the hospitality sector.
The event will welcome more than 150 executive housekeepers, directors of rooms and laundry managers from the region’s top hotel properties. Collectively, the event aims for housekeepers to reflect on how to address key operator challenges, meeting guest expectations and driving efficiencies among its teams.
The morning subjects include how housekeeping is the fundamental reason for a hotel’s success at 9:05am, how to find the right applicant and how hotels are able to retain them at 9:20am, how housekeepers can progress during their careers and be noticed more at 10:00am, a supplier insight into the costs of keeping on top of a ‘spotless’ room at 10:40am, ways to bridge the gap between cost and creating value to meet profit margins at 10:50am.
The afternoon discussions will comprise adopting new technologies and automation to future-proof operations at 12:15am, encouraging housekeepers to drive social media for good reviews at 12:55pm, a supplier insight into using green cleaning materials and finally sustainably reducing costs such as cutting out plastics from cleaning products to amenities.
The discussions will be headed up by our line-up of speakers such as Grand Hyatt Dubai’s executive housekeeper, Tatjana Ahmed, Mina Seyahi Complex’s executive housekeeper Pamini Hemaprabha, Palazzo Versace Dubai’s director of housekeeping, Chandra Illanperuma and Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek’s executive housekeeper Sheeja Sasidharan.
