Double win for Blu in Lagos
The Radisson Blu Hotel Lagos Ikeja and its General Manager were recently recognized for their contribution to Nigerian enterprise.

I’m pleased to share the news that the Radisson Blu Hotel Lagos Ikeja received two awards at the recent Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Initiative of Nigeria Summit.

The Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Initiative of Nigeria Summit (TEEINS) is an important event that brings together leading figures from across the nation to explore the development of enterprise in the company and celebrate success.

So, we’re delighted that the summit recognized the Radisson Blu Hotel Lagos Ikeja with not one but two awards. The hotel itself won Best Hospitality Company of the Year 2018, while its General Manager, George Balassis came away with the award for Africa’s Most Enterprising Hospitality Management Personality of the Year 2018.

The first award was given as an acknowledgement of both the hotel’s ability to deliver the best possible hospitality experience and its efforts to create jobs for people across Lagos over the years.

The second award was given to George for being the driving force behind the hotel team’s dedication to delivering truly memorable moments for guests and employees alike. Having only joined the hotel at the beginning of this year, it’s an incredible achievement for George and well deserved.

Congratulations to George and the entire Radisson Blu Hotel Lagos Ikeja team for their tireless efforts to make the hotel such a wonderful place to stay.
