Executive Events together with Asian Traveller Magazine brought together around 80 GMs of hotels in Kerala through The Kerala Hotel General Managers’ Club (KHGMC). The first such event was held on April 8 at the Ramada Resort Cochin, with Executive Events managing the event.
There were two aspects to the meet. The first was the handing out of Lifetime Achievement Awards in the hospitality industry; the second was a get together where GMs could network and share insights about the industry. Participating GMs included Vineet Mishra, GM, Kochi Marriott; Matthew C. Thomas, GM, Taj Group of Hotels; and Achuthan Menon, GM, Renai Medicity.
Executive Events handled the registration process, production, arrangement of an emcee and the overall execution of the event. Raju Kannampuzha, Managing Director, Executive Events remarked, “It was very difficult to bring all the GMs together since they are competitors, but the number of attendees at the event met our expectations, and marked the success of the event".
Other partners and sponsors included Kingfisher Premium, AxisRooms, Image Factory, Elite Premium Wines, and Ramada Resort Cochin.
On co-organizing this event, G. Biju Krishnan, Editor, Asian Traveller added, “The event went very smoothly. One of the major challenges was bringing all the GMs together. But the number of attendees prove that the event was a success. We will be looking to organize this event in coming years also."
