Buenos Aires, November 29, 2010 – HVS, a leading consulting firm in the hotel, tourism, and leisure industry, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its HVS Buenos Aires office.
In November 2000, HVS and Arturo García Rosa, an industry expert with over 30 years of experience and leadership in the hotel and tourism business in the region, joined forces and opened HVS Buenos Aires, with García Rosa as its president. Prior to this affiliation, García Rosa had headed RHC – Hospitality Consulting since 1995, after eleven years as the Managing Director of the renowned and prestigious Alvear Palace Hotel.
Under the HVS banner, the company has placed greater focus on the overall Latin American market, especially on Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Panama, Costa Rica, and Ecuador. The company offers a wide range of services to assist the hotel and real estate industries and tourist destinations.
Arturo García Rosa is also the president of HVS Lima, which opened at the end of 2009. He has been involved in a number of South America’s most emblematic projects, including the mixed-use Parque El Golf in Lima, the St. Regis Buenos Aires, the Luxury Collection Cusco, the Grand Hyatt San Pablo, the Panamericano Buenos Aires, the Hilton Puerto Madero, and a mixed-use project by Cencosud in Santiago.
As stated by García Rosa, “these first 10 years of our HVS Buenos Aires office have helped us build a solid relationship with the market based on trust and credibility, while supporting the development of the hotel and tourism business throughout the region. Over the years, we have established a deep relationship with our clients and the market as a whole, which drives us to continue striving for growth and, above all, for improving the quality of our professional services.”
The teams in both offices, under the leadership of Graciana García Iribarne, consist of experienced professionals with a proven track record in the industry. A qualified group of economists, hoteliers, marketing and HR experts, and professionals with degrees in tourism and demography, among others, actively participate in a large number of successful projects in Latin America.
According to García Iribarne, “this 10th anniversary propels us to seek new challenges that will benefit the region and strengthen the HVS presence in the main South American markets and encourage its expansion to other new markets in Latin America.”
With these goals in mind, since 2008 HVS Buenos Aires has organized the sector’s major annual conference: SAHIC – South American Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference; this gathering has become a benchmark event and a great opportunity to increase and develop deeper relations with the region’s major industry players.
As HVS Buenos Aires celebrates its 10th anniversary, we take pride in being a major participant in the hospitality and tourism sectors and in supporting an industry that has become one of the cornerstones of the Latin American economy.
