Fort Malakoff wins Location Award 2013

Fort Malakoff - Unique and Award Winning Event Location in Mainz

Fort Malakoff

What a reason to celebrate for Hyatt Regency Mainz!  The historic Fort Malakoff has been awarded the Location Award 2013 in the Hotel Event Location category.  The award ceremony was held on 17 October 2013 in the presence of 500 invited guests under the EXPO wooden roof of the Deutsche Messe AG in Hannover.

For the fourth time, the Location Portale GmbH honoured the best venues in Germany, divided into ten categories, including categories such as Sustainability and Innovation, Design Location, Location for Major Events and Historic Locations.  Public online voting had reduced the total of 342 applicants to three nominees in each category.  In the decisive round the  candidates were then asked to create a comprehensive concept of an event that the specificity, quality and professionalism of the respective location underscores.  From this, an independent panel of experts then selected the winners.

By winning this recognised industry prize in the Hotel Event Location category, Fort Malakoff  was able to prevail successfully against the Lindner Park Hotel Hagenbeck, Hamburg and the Atlantic Congress Hotel, Essen.  Carsten K. Rath, Hotel Manager of the Year 2011, service excellence expert and member of the jury, praised the Mainz hotel in his speech for its diverse and extraordinary event concept, saying, "Hyatt Mainz has won out over the other houses by a large margin because it really considers the guest and was also far beyond common endeavor – not trying to be merely creative, but being relevantly creative.  The concept and the style of the house have convinced the jury unanimously".

The "Location Award is a great honour for us," says Otto Steenbeek, general manager of Hyatt Regency Mainz.  "Our entire team is proud that we were able to inspire the jury with our unique event concept, so we can call ourselves the best German Hotel event Location henceforth."

Fort Malakoff, which is integrated perfectly into the modern hotel complex of Hyatt Regency Mainz, is a venue of a special kind.  With its vaulted Palatorium Hall, open show kitchen, stylish Malakoff Bar and cosy wine cellar, the fort offers varied and innovative event concepts.  Whether it’s a kitchen party, a wedding, a corporate occasion or family celebration, with perfect service and attention to detail, each event will become a unique experience within this historical and contemporary ambience.
