Les Clefs d´Or Brésil
The Brazilian section of Les Clefs d´Or started in the 80s, when the so-called Chef Concierge of hotel Le Méridien Copacabana, Alexandre Imbroisi (already deceased) was a member of French Les Clefs d’Or.
Alexandre Imbroisi, in his early twenties, was taken to French Les Clefs d’Or by the hands of the so-called Chef Concierge of Hotel Le Meridien Montparnasse, from Paris, monsieur Marc Berger, and at that team, already participated in international summits.
In 1991, Alexandre called the Concierges of the main hotels in Rio, such as InterContinental, Copacabana Palace, Rio Othon Palace, Sheraton and the former Rio Palace, among others, and for a meeting aiming at creating Les Clefs d’Or Brésil.
Soon after, the majority of Concierges from Rio de Janeiro, including Paulo Roberto Corrêa, our current counsel, took part of the 1st Extraordinary Assembly where the Les Clefs d’Or Brésil bylaws- Brazilian Association of Concierges of the Top-line Hotels (Abraco) were created and where the bylaws of foundation were approved, published by the Official Gazette dated as of December 6th, 1991.
Currently, the Brazilian section of Les Clefs d´Or is represented in seven states: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul and Bahia. There is a huge potential to develop the concierge association from Noth to South and the diretory is motivaded to go through. Next challenge is host the Panamerican Congress in 2020.
