Novotel Visakhapatnam Varun Beach celebrates fetes local heroes
On 19 November 2017, AccorHotels honored everyday heroes – men and women, such as social workers, volunteers, firefighters, nurses and teachers – who work each day to serve their communities, by inviting them in more than 2,000 establishments around the world, including over 500 hotels in Asia Pacific and 53 hotels in India.
This global event was an opportunity for the Group and its more than 250,000 employees to thank the people who are committed to serving their communities by sharing a moment with them around a breakfast, a barbecue, a concert, or even by inviting them to stay the night as our guests.
In India, a ‘Lunch of Honor’ was organised at various hotels for their selected unsung heroes. Novotel Visakhapatnam Varun Beach arranged for a traditional welcome for the local heroes as well as their families. They were offered a refreshing drink upon arrival followed by a lively welcome towards their lunch venue –The Square. Each hero was introduced and called on the dais to share their heartening journey.
A special AccorHotels 50th anniversary cake was cut by these heroes and they enthusiastically participated in posing for the pictures thereafter. While they enjoyed the buffet, the hotel guests and employee volunteers performed for them on the stage. Parting souvenirs were later presented to the local heroes.
