Performances, Speeches, And Fashion At Pullman’s Launch

On the evening of June 20th, 2024, Pullman Hotels & Resorts officially opened its doors in the prestigious Upper Hill area of Nairobi. The grand launch event, carefully planned and executed, was a celebration of elegance, innovation, and the future of hospitality in Kenya. The event showcased the Pullman brand’s commitment to creating a unique and unforgettable experience for its guests.

The festivities began with a warm welcome and registration from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Guests were treated to mesmerizing performances by Maasai dancers and Isikuti dancers, setting the tone for an evening rich in cultural appreciation and entertainment. The air was filled with anticipation as dignitaries, including the Principal Secretary of Tourism, John Olooltuaa, and other notable guests arrived at the carport area. The VIP lounge at the Cosmopolitan Hub provided an elegant space for early mingling and networking.

The official opening ceremony commenced at 7:00 PM at the Pullman Porte Cochere. The MC, with great enthusiasm, introduced the leaders from Accor and KASADA, including Paul Stevens, Jonathan Sheard, and Daniel Karbownik, alongside Olivier Granet. The national anthem played as everyone stood in unity, followed by a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony officiated by the Principal Secretary of Tourism. The grand gesture marked the official opening of the hotel, a significant milestone celebrated with applause and cheers.

The speech by Gerard Moutou, the General Manager of Pullman & Mercure Hotel Nairobi Upperhill, resonated with the audience. He eloquently expressed the vision and mission of Pullman Hotels & Resorts, emphasizing the brand’s dedication to exceptional service and innovation in hospitality. The toast, led by Gerard Moutou, was accompanied by a sabrage, a dramatic tradition of opening a bottle of champagne with a saber, which added an extra touch of excitement to the event.

Following the opening ceremony, guests were invited to the Grand Ballroom for the keynote speech and presentations from 7:45 PM to 8:30 PM.
