Countdown to Christmas.......already?

2013-10-11 17:00:00

As some of you probably know in the hotel industry we are always planning ahead. So while most of you haven’t even thought about your Halloween costume yet, we’re busy getting ready for Christmas. I know many of you don’t like hearing the ‘C’ word in October but we’ve been busy planning for it since the Summer. It seems that we aren’t the only ones though because many of the hotels have already filled some of their Christmas Party Nights so if you’re in charge of your office party this year make sure to get on it now!

The countdown to Christmas also brings the launch of our Apprentice competition. Each year we run a search for the Carlton Apprentice and four of our hotels put forward a candidate each. This year’s challenge is a little different though as we’ve added a social media task to it so along with selling vouchers the apprentices have to engage with our followers on Facebook. The apprentices will spend the next few weeks coming up with marketing ideas and promotions for their Christmas vouchers and will then start selling to their corporate clients. They will then go head to head in shopping centres in December selling vouchers so if you spot them while you’re out buying gifts make sure to show your support and pick up a Carlton voucher!

I think that’s enough talk about Christmas for now but I better not go before mentioning that the Carlton Hotel Blanchardstown are running a dogs party on Sunday the 20th of October in aid Dogs Trust Ireland. It’s for the whole family so make sure to call down and show you’re support for this great cause.

I’ll leave it at that for now but I’ll be back soon with some more news, have a great weekend!
