Speech

YS Luncheon meeting

28.11.2019

Clarion Congress Hotel

 

Dear friends, dear guests !

 

Welcome

to the Clarion Congress Hotel. I am looking forward to the , it seems unfortunately, last luncheon meeting in this establishment. We alway enjoyed the great hospitality here, but as usual, all good things must end.

November is unfortunate always the AHRC congress and thus reduced the number of attendance because many of our members are also AHRC members and attend the congress

 

Guests

it´s my pleasure to welcome

Ms.Gabriele LENGER the new MD of the Austrian Tourist Board in the Czech. You all remember Ingrid Sieder our long term Club member very well. If you can´t remember her face, I am sure your remember her laughter !

Mr. Franz PRASSL Consultant of the Vlatava Labe Media Group and hopefully, if he ever complets the membership proposal form, soon a full member of Skål Int.Club Prague.

 

Todays YS Presentation

will be presented by Jan Houška, one of the last active YS members. YS is not very higly represented today. Maria Zhelbunove is excused becaus she celebrates today her wedding in the Troja Castle. We will need a few new YS members because almost all the others are coming towards 30 and either join as full members or leave the Club, which I personally would be very sorry for. The presentation will be right after my speech.

Hotel Development in Prague

Prague is among the top tourist cities in the world, says a new ranking. I think you all are aware that a second round of hotel projects in Prague in the pipe-line.

M – Marriott 170 bedrooms***** on Wencelars Square

Hyatt 175 bedrooms ***** on Senovážne Square

Julius Meinl Prime Homes 170 Luxury flats just opposite

Ritz Carlton 90 bedrooms ***** on Old Town Square

Interconti will be upgrated to a Fairmont Hotel

just to name a few.

This means that the 5* + sector in Prague will  be re-shuffled

on top of all that a Hard Rock Hotel with 523 bedrooms on Letnà
