“It is with great pride that I may inform you that the most valued prize of Hoteliers in Germany, the ‘Hotelier of the year – Special Award’ was recently awarded to my company and its management team. In recognition of outstanding achievements and rendered services to the community of hoteliers in Germany this award was handed over during a festive gala ceremony with the attendance of 800 guests – the who-is-who in Germany’s hotel sector. Due to the Corona pandemia the event was postponed this year and moved from Berlin to the Europapark Resort Rust – awarded 2019 as the greatest theme- and entertainment park in the world.
I am particularly proud of not only my business partner Klaus Kluth but also of my daughter Petra, who has been with us for ten years now, heading the whole operating sector of Bierwirth & Kluth – apart from the fact that yet another EHMA member was awarded. After EHMA’s presidency (2010-2013) and having received the EHMA Life Time Achievement Award earlier this year at the AGM in Lugano there’s hardly anything that could top my career at the end of my active business life.
Thank you all for your wonderful support over all these years!”
