The non-profit Phuket Hotels Association is holding an online silent auction featuring spectacular prizes donated by its island members, the proceeds of which will go into a scholarship fund aimed at developing Thai hotel talent and ultimately creating Thai hotel general managers and senior executives.
On May 13, it is organising a fund-raising event on the island but individuals across the globe can now participate by bidding for the prizes, which range from ultra villas in Phuket, hotel stays in posh properties in London, Toyko Sydney, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Miami Beach, Hollywood, Melbourne and Niseko, etc. Two great examples of offers are a hotel stay at The Savoy in London and an seven-night multi-property adventure. The auction will close on May 12.
Today with over 60 of the islands hotels as members and headed to the magic number of 100, we have launched our education initiative. Our mission is paying it forward and reinvesting in Phuket’s most important asset, its human capital,” said Bill Barnett, managing director of C9 Hotelworks. “This is a great cause. As hoteliers too often we forget to put back into our industry. Now is the chance for change. Get online now and start bidding as the site closes on May 12.
