AICR UAE is hosting this year’s “Receptionist of the Year Competition”, with the first round set to take place on 21 September 2019.
The winner of this competition will represent the UAE at the David Campbell competition in February 2020 in Warsaw, Poland, which seeks to find the best receptionist in the world.
The second and third round will be held on 28 September and 5 October. Last year, Kudzanayi Chigwedere, a front desk agent at the time from voco Dubai, represented the UAE.
AICR UAE president Yomi Egbeleye told Hotelier Middle East: “We [UAE] arguably have some of the best hotels and resorts in the world and it’s only right that we do our best to ensure that a thorough competition is held in the coming weeks. This will allow us to showcase to the world the deep-rooted and passionate service that UAE is truly known for. As an association it is vital that we take advantage of platforms such as this competition to aid and foster the development of our future leaders.”
The competition is held in memory of the late David Campbell who became the Chef de Reception at The Ritz Hotel, Paris, after gaining a wealth of International experience.
