AICR Congress – Zurich 2018

The David Campbell Trophy

david_campbell_trophyThe late David Campbell became Chef de Reception at The Ritz Hotel, Paris, after gaining a wealth of International experience.

In memory of David and in acknowledgement of his dedication and passion to the industry, the International Receptionist of the Year Competition was formed, with a Trophy designed and sponsored by the Paris AICR section, to be presented each year.

Marcel Elbaz, Graham Bamford, Annie Boslem and the AICR International Committee members, worked together with the International College of Hotel Management in Adelaide, Australia, to establish the rules and format, launching the Competition in 1995. Jane Renton continued these efforts after Annie Boslem’s departure two years later.

The Competition grows from strength to strength each year and has gained the respect of Hoteliers and Sponsors. It meets its objective as a training tool for the younger generation and the future AICR and the Hospitality Industry, with the emphasis on “Amicale”.
