of the town with creative events,
such as:

November 2012 in what was still a
challenging environment.
• The ‘Bus that Rocked the
City’ drove around Cairo with
Marriott staff engaging the local
community and highlighting the
cultural sites in a unique initiative
to boost tourism to Egypt,
displaying an unprecedented level
of creativity.

Ghada said: “Our initiatives seek to
engage all teams in the hotel, so
the successful outcome reflects
positively on everyone here.”
