HTMi, Hotel and Tourism Management Institute Switzerland joins the Embassies of the Czech Republic and Slovakia in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution.

On Tuesday, 19th November 2019 HTMi Switzerland was proud once again to support the two embassies by sending our Slovak and Czech young ambassadors to support their event held at the Town Hall in Bern. The venue is a very historic building in the Swiss capital city and is the political centre of the government of the canton and city of Bern. The event was held to mark the 30-year anniversary of the Velvet or Gentle Revolution. A significant event in both nations where students and elders stood up in a non-violent way and saw a peaceful transition of power to a free and democratic country.

Our students once again displayed the highest levels of hospitality and professionalism and we thank them for their support. HTMi Switzerland also thanks the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic for our long-standing partnership in supporting their many diplomatic events each year.

Pictured with our students are Her Excellency Madam Ambassador Kateřina Fialková of the Czech Republic (far left) and Her Excellency Madam Andrea Elschekova Matisove of the Slovak Republic Embassy (far right).
