Welcome to the new and improved Website of the Dubai section of the A.I.C.R., the ‘Amicale Internationale des Chefs de Reception et Sous Directeurs des Grand Hotels’.
The Association of Front Office Managers and Assistant Managers of 4 and 5 star hotels, which represents the translation from the French original definition, was founded on the Cote d'Azur in France in 1964 and over the past 40 years has developed into an international fellowship with sections in 18 countries.
The Dubai section of the AICR was founded in 2005, and has grown to become an exciting, active network for all Rooms Division Executives working and living in this buzzing and growing city.
Whilst the Amicale was founded as a professional organization, the name was chosen to reflect the friendship that is built between our members. The aims of the AICR are to facilitate and strengthen the professional relationships between members and to promote and publicise the importance of their profession, developing the profile of the industry through networking, training and development. Our membership constitutes an extensive source of contacts, offering invaluable networking opportunities, providing each other with support, information and advice.
Throughout the year we organize events for our members that are offering a wide range of opportunities to get together, network, exchange our views and share our experiences and best practices.
A key event in our annual calendar is the “Receptionist Of The Year Competition”, information about as well as other forthcoming events can be found on following pages, together with past newsletters, ways to contact your committee and the full membership database open to our current members.
If you would like to join this dynamic, fun and useful network of professionals, then please review the membership criteria and apply by using the e-application page of this site – we look forward to welcoming you as part of the Amicale!
As an existing member we trust that you will enjoy the features of our new web presence and find it a useful tool for keeping up to date and in touch.
On behalf of the committee of the Dubai section, we are delighted you have visited our Site. We hope you enjoy using and browsing through it and invite you to contact us with any information, ideas or questions you have.
