    The artwork of six associates was displayed in the staff canteen, and based on associate voting the winner Majdi Al Azam received a complimentary dinner for two at the Italian restaurant Enzo, in appreciation of his creative artwork and artistic passion. All participants also enjoyed Italian cuisine with the general manager Giuseppe Ressa, the human resources manager Rania Srouji, and the training manager Mustafa Daoud.

    The winners from all participating Le Meridien Hotels will compete on an international level, and the winner will receive a free 3 nights' accommodation and round trip airfare for two people to France, Thailand, USA, Panama or Spain.
