As we dive head first into the new and exciting year, for all of us supplying hospitality staff to events and hotels we thought we’d lighten the mood and give you a few fun and interesting facts to motivate you to make this the best year yet!
Our Top 5 fun facts for January are:
The First World Hotel, situated in Malaysia is one of the largest hotels in the world. With around 7,350 rooms, the average price is about $15 to $80. However, Abraj kudai, situated in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, which is currently under construction will take over the first position in 2019-20, with 10,000 rooms, 45 restaurants, and four rooftop helipads. That’s a lot of event staff!
France is the most visited country in the world. It attracts more than 80 million visitors annually. This might not be surprising given the presence of the scenic Alps, French cuisine, lovely destinations, best wines and eloquent people. But can the catering staff match our UK workers?!
Robert De Niro is one of the most avid Hollywood celebrities to invest in the hospitality industry. As co-owner of Nobu Hospitality and Nobu Restaurants, with celebrity chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa and others, De Niro has invested in over 30 restaurants and multiple hotels around the world. We’d sure love for him to hire hospitality staff from us!
66% of brides plan to have at least one drink before walking down the aisle! So there are usually some temp staff close by ready to top up drinks of nervous brides.
