Tuesday, September 30th, LIFE (the Faculty of Life Science).
There was much rejoicing among the attendants when the Municipality of Frederiksberg declared Avenue Hotel the winner of its prestigious Business Award. The Mayor of Frederiksberg, Mads Lebech, presented the diploma and a sculpture for the mantlepiece made by local sculptor, Carsten Jensen, to Avenue Hotel’s Commander in Chief, Mai Kappenberger.
General Manager, Mai Kappenberger, at the Award Ceremony.
Mai Kappenberger expressed her profound gratitude, feeling both honored and overwhelmed by having the hotel singled out among 7,000 contestants. The judges had taken special note of not only the atmosphere and the surroundings of the Avenue Hotel, but also the wide array of interesting events taking place every so often, placing Frederiksberg on the map.
All employees celebrated by continuing to work smarter, not harder. A follow up attempt to make September 30th a National Holiday sadly was shot down by the Ministry dealing with such matters. Team Avenue wasn’t put down, though, and will keep on truckin’ into 2009.
