Worldhotels World Community Day sees hotel group and its sister companies support local causes worldwide

Frankfurt (ots) - Under the slogan "Be curious, Be creative, But above all, be caring", Worldhotels staff, hotels and sister companies around the world took time out to celebrate the group's third annual World Community Day. Working side-by-side, they devoted a full working day to support chosen social, environmental or humanitarian projects all around the world.

Since 2012, Worldhotels World Community Day has enjoyed rising popularity amongst the group's hotels and staff. This year, the initiative reached new heights with the participation of Worldhotels' sister companies Trust International, Nexus and InnLink.

"We share the benefits of living and working in fantastic local communities, but this brings responsibilities towards our neighbours and environment," comments Kristin Intress, CEO of Worldhotels. "Together with our dedicated hotels and sister companies we've made a great contribution and grown closer as a team."
