Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre reaffirms its support for ‘Iftar for Cabs’ an initiative by Starwood Hotels & Resorts
The blessings and benefits of the holy month of Ramadan continue to rain-down in the Emirate of Dubai with Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre participating in Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ sixth annual ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative on Wednesday, July 8th 2015.
Conceptualised by Starwood Hotels & Resorts – the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative has been running since 2010 and has since become an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the Middle East. Last year, Starwood delivered over 3,000 Iftar packs to cab drivers across the region. This year, Starwood, including Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre is also extending the gesture to its partner-drivers at Uber and is looking forward to reach-out at least 200 cab drivers.
Iftar for Cabs 2015 at Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre was made possible with the significant support and efforts of the Sales & Marketing, Events and Catering departments who joined forces to deliver iftar packs to the cab drivers at the entrance of the Great Ballroom.
“For us at Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, this holy month of Ramadan is a period for soul cleansing and reinforcing spiritual bonds by offering charity and ‘Iftar for Cabs 2015’ is our way of giving back to society. The role of a cab driver in the UAE is both noteworthy and valuable. We take this opportunity to express our support and appreciation for these hard-working and thoughtful individuals who are part of our cohesive community,” said Shaun Parsons, General Manager at Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre.
Situated close to the Dubai International Airport, Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre positions itself right in the heart of the city offering modern lifestyle but still maintaining the aura and warmth of rustic living. The hotel has its country charm preserved by 38 acres of landscaped gardens, lush meadows, well-tended shrubs and striking date palms. The distinctive assortment of contemporary sojourn coupled with idyllic settings makes Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre a truly world-class business and leisure hotel and an inviting venue for inspired meetings and conferences
