Mövenpick Al Aziziyah held a reception last Wednesday night to mark the rebranding of the property and honour its clients and partners for their continuous support. The event took place at the beautiful terrace of the hotel's signature restaurant Blue, well-known for its picturesque views of Aspire Park.

Nearly 200 people came to the event. Amongst the distinguished guests were Olivier Chavy, President and CEO of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer for the Middle East and South Asia, and Gerard Hotelier, Vice President Operations for the Middle East and South Asia, as well as a large number of company managers, embassies, journalists, bloggers and other personalities. Guests were welcomed with traditional Arda dance, escorted to the outdoor terrace of Blue and treated to Mövenpick’s signature “Healthy Shots”. At the terrace, a sax and violin duo performed beautiful live music for the arriving guests to enjoy.

The evening was opened by a welcoming speech from Beat Peter, General Manager of Mövenpick Hotel Al Aziziyah. “This special occasion give us a great opportunity to express our deep gratitude for our guests and clients for their trust and continuous support”, Peter said. The night continued with a magical performance by Zahra Nasser, a sand artist from Bahrain, who depicted the story of the hotel and the development of Qatar, by creating fluid illustrations with sand. Her spectacular performance, which was accompanied by music, was projected onto a large screen for everyone to appreciate.

The environment was highly amicable. Throughout the evening, visitors were offered with beautiful music, a selection of canapés and a collection of signature mocktails and fresh juices. Live cooking stations were presented during the event, featuring dishes from the main hotel outlets, Agora and Blue. Also, all the visitors had a chance to experience Gulf traditional food prepared by a special guest of the event, chef Mohammed, who is well-known in social media simply as "weld_alshei5a". The evening ended with a cake-cutting ceremony and firework candles.
