The business development director of Dubai College of Tourism Jeff Strachan also outlined the importance of the Les Clefs d’Or concierge and also introduced the Dubai Way 3 training course, which will be implemented to hoteliers imminently. 

Also presenting at the event was the national president of Les Clefs d’Or UAE Abey Sam who spoke about the activities that the association has conducted over the years to support concierges.

Ahead of the Concierge Mastermind of the Year competition, which Hotelier Middle East launched earlier this year, senior commercial manager Kelly Jenkins believed it was time that concierges were “put under the spotlight” and that they were the “heartbeat of the city”.

Concierges can apply for the competition via email to cmoty@itp.com by Wednesday 31 July 2019.
