No of Post: 0
Following the success at the 7th Gomio Hostelling conference in Barcelona in 2008, we were determined to participate again in the 8th Conference held in Dresden this year. Once again we were delighted by the opportunity to present on a topic very close to our hearts’ “Create an ambiance – differentiate yourself” together with Robert from Hostels of Sicily. All we have learnt in the 4 years of operation, that has helped define and mould envoy into what it is today was presented to others, in what was referred to as an inspirational presentation.
Envoy’ the only hostel of its kind in Armenia and the Caucuses sees itself as not only a European standard hostel but also an advocate and an avid promoter of Armenia. Many guests have indicated that their reason to travel to Armenia has been due to learning that such affordable accommodation which envoy provides is available. Indeed this conference was no different. Many fellow hostelliers were motivated to travel to Armenia now that they have discovered its existence!
The conference was attended by over 200 delegates from 33 countries, ranging from large chains in major cities, boasting up to 800 beds, through to small individual hostels in remote European towns with less than 20 beds.
Many delegates have shown interest in our presentation and are keen to implement the ideas presented on how to establish a welcoming ambiance and effectively create a home away from home.
Our friend and co-presenter’ Robert from Hostels of Sicily is organizing next years conference to be held in Sicily, which we look forward to attending again for the third year running.
