The Prize awarded on the night of the business travel Oscars.
15 Sep 2020
Not only the largest Italian hotel chain, but also the "Hotel chain of the year": the crowning of Gruppo UNA took place during the 2020 edition of the Italian Mission Awards, the event dedicated to the most important Business Travel operators both national and international.
Gruppo UNA has been awarded because of its growth in the Italian market, combined with solid investments in hotel renovations, focused on business travel technologies and services, and for its offer of smart products with a very interesting value for money ratio.
"We are very proud to receive this award after last year's journey which saw the reopening of the Principi di Piemonte | UNA Esperienze hotel, authentic jewel of Turin architecture, and new high-level entries in our portfolio. " - comments Fabrizio Gaggio, Gruppo UNA Managing Director - "Today we are facing a particularly challenging phase in the hospitality sector and a radically changed travel context, to which Gruppo UNA responded promptly with its distinctive offer, made up of safety and quality. With commitment, we look to the future by focusing on the values that constitute the essence of our brands - guests comfort and Italian positive attitude - and by expanding further, with the next opening of our new flagship hotel Milano Verticale | UNA Esperienze in 2021 ".
Business Travel, the year of Gruppo UNA.
During 2019, Gruppo UNA celebrated the reopening of the 5-star hotel Principi di Piemonte | UNA Esperienze, a historic Turin icon and the new spearhead of its most precious collection, after the renovations that involved the rooms, the restaurant, the bar, the common areas and the outdoors. The Grand Opening represented an important step in the strategic development path undertaken to start from the rebranding two years ago, also strengthened by the launch of the Franchising Project.
The innovative approach to the affiliation formula has made it possible to consolidate the position of reference for the market and expand the portfolio in the main Italian destinations with the entry of new excellences, among which Relais Villa Grazianella | UNA Esperienze, nestled between the hills of Montepulciano, and L’Ariana Isole Eolie | UNA Esperienze, the fifth Sicilian structure of the Group.
The next few months will see a new flagship in the portfolio of structures shine, thanks to the opening of Milano Verticale | UNA Esperienze: the new flagship hotel, located in the trendy Garibaldi / Gae Aulenti district, promises to go beyond the traditional concept of "hotel" while proposing itself as an urban hotel, a gourmet destination, the address for a drink, a place of business, an innovative hub for successful events.
The evolution towards the future: more safety, the same hospitality as always.
Gruppo UNA's will is to face the future by ensuring the present, with constant investment in terms of the protection and well-being of the guest. With this priority objective, the official UNAsafe protocol was launched in 2020, a detailed program of actions, services and procedures implemented by the Group to ensure the safety of guests and staff, verified by the international certification body DNV GL - Business Assurance.
