This time we were recognized on the regional level and were awarded the Istriana award, an award that is traditionally given to individuals from the fields of culture, music, health, science and education, economy and sports in Istria, but this year was awarded to individuals, institutions and business subjects that particularly contributed in fighting COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic in Istria.
As we have previously reported, during March, April and May, immediately after the crisis arose, we undertook a series of activities to help our local community cope with the new circumstances:
• co-financing the purchase of UVDI-360 Room Sanitizer for Pula General Hospital and donating LCD TVs for patients;
• preparing 100 lunch packages a day for more than two months for local hospital staff;
• assisting in the preparation and cleaning of new hospital spaces for over a month.
On behalf of Arena Hospitality Group, the award was received by Ms. Manuela Kraljević, Member of the Management Board & Marketing and Sales Director, who said for the occasion: “On behalf of Arena Hospitality Group and all its employees, we are honoured that, as a hotel company, we found ourselves among the most respectable official institutions and their teams, whose contribution especially marked this year. We also thank the organizer of this commendable initiative for the recognition. Our company will surely continue to emphasize the importance of cooperation and contribution to our community among its priorities.”
