Thank you for the opportunity to take part in the International Housekeepers’ Summit!
It was a great learning for me personally, about this aspect of the Hotel Industry – as I’m always curious! It was also good to have some interesting chats with a good number of delegates as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the buzz of the conference.

Thanks a lot for having arranged the International Housekeepers’ Summit in Sahara Star, Mumbai, in such a wonderful and professional manner, and giving laundry segment a platform to speak. We are deeply obliged.
I learnt a lot in the summit, especially the tensions and problems faced by the department, cleaning machinery, chemicals and many other areas of housekeeping. I got to know many people too.
I wish you all the best for years to come. You are on the right path.

The IHS 2016 was a wonderful programme which we believe could be a game-changing event in the Housekeeping space for Asia.
It was very professionally organised and it was a pleasure being a part of the event as a sponsor. Thank you!
Looking forward to your future events!

The two-day International Housekeepers Summit held IN Mumbai on 27th & 28th of August was a well organised event.

A winning combination of integrity, determination and passion, coupled with a penchant for luxury and the finer things in life, inspired me to give it my all. It also played a crucial role in taking me to the Taj Group, as a housekeeper as well as a consummate hotelier. In the first two years at Taj, I had a glorious time at a lovely beach resort in Goa. This was followed by a six-month stint doing content development and handling the newly-launched Hotel Operations Management Program (HOMT) — where I taught my favourite subject: Housekeeping.
Somewhere around this time, it occurred to me that the role of the housekeeper needn’t end with what’s traditionally expected of him/her. So I spent the next year and half in self-learning, growing and gathering information.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step and that small step was a nudge by a classmate at IHM Mumbai to appear for the then OSHM (now OCLD) campus placements. With Avril Sule being the most loved teacher at IHM Mumbai; Housekeeping had been Brasso, dusters, polishing the old auditorium door along with loads of giggles and out right laughter!! Housekeeping seemed like a fun place to be.
My Housekeeping journey began at the Oberoi Hotel Mumbai in 1996 where I was at the Tower’s wing, a mammoth property known for its quality, standards and above all people. I worked with housemen and room attendants who had spent more years in the hotel than my age and they did not miss a chance to remind me that.

A massive thank you again for letting me be a part of what was a smashing program with two excellent days. All throughout the seminar I heard high praise from the attendees about the meet. The presenters were excellent with some great thoughtprovoking topics and the sessions that were really well attended.
I feel you did a superb job organising the meetings, selecting, allowing for networking and especially loved how you had laid out two days with different angles from very common business sectors. The seminar was superb and hassle free and I very much enjoyed meeting, speaking to and listening to many of the people who attended. I very much admire your professional attention to detail and perfectionism on all levels.
My heartiest congratulations again for what was really a successful and memorable seminar – truly you are the gold standard!
