Empresas Bern’s Hotel School project, with the support of the Intercontinental Hotel Group, is another yet another Bern initiative that has captured national headlines. At the end of January 2007, the contract was signed and the first brick was laid, officially initiating the work.
The Panama International Hotel School will be located in the City of Knowledge (Ciudad del Saber) in Clayton, part of the former Panama Canal Zone. Through this ambitious project, Empresas Bern is looking to qualify professionals at all levels to efficiently manage hotel projects, a developing industry in Panama.
Empresas Bern announced that they will continue to expand their hotel group with the simultaneous construction of the Holiday Inn Panama. Both projects will incur a cost of USD$8 million and will be financed by Soctiabank. Empresas Bern hopes to commence operations at the beginning of 2008.
