18 Oct 2016
Munich, 18 October 2016 – This year the „Blue Hotel Award“ goes to the tourism researcher, expert and author Professor Duccio Canestrini.
The award that is conferred by the magazine „hotelbau“ and the real estate consultancy STIWA Real Estate Advisory GmbH was presented to Canestrini in the course of the hotelforum gala dinner. The winners of the „Hotel Property of the Year Award“ 2016 as well as of the „Hospitality Innovation Award“ were honored at the same time. The „Blue Hotel Award“ was awarded for the seventh time.
Carl O. Stinglwagner FRICS, initiator of the ´Blue Hotel Award´ praised the outstanding commitment of Canestrini to the successful implementation of holistic sustainability concepts in the core areas of ecology, economy and social responsibility.
Professor Canestrini has rendered outstanding services to research in the field of anthropology of tourism. Crucial to his winning the award were his research results in the areas of mass tourism and safety concepts. These aspects have a significant influence on the sustainability of investments, especially at locations like North Africa and the Middle East. His book “Don’t shoot the tourist” has already been translated into German.
