The Amicale was founded as a professional organisation, but the name was chosen to reflect the friendship that is built between our members. The aims of the AICR are to facilitate and strengthen the professional relationships between members and to promote and publicise the importance of their profession, developing the profile of the industry through training and development. Our membership constitutes an extensive source of contacts, offering invaluable networking opportunities whilst providing each other with support, information and advice.
Throughout the year events are organised for our members offering a wide range of opportunities to get together, to network, exchange our views and share our experiences. In addition to our AGM and International Congress past events have included skill development, information sharing, new hotel inspections, and product presentations. We have worked closely with colleges, universities, and Government organisations with initiatives to attract more young people into the industry and to develop their careers within Front Office. A key event in our annual calendar is the “Receptionist Of The Year Competition”.
Information about the Receptionist Of The Year Competition and our other forthcoming events can be found on these pages, together with past newsletters, ways to contact your committee and the full membership database.
As an existing member we hope that you will find your web-site a useful tool for keeping up to date and in touch.

The four star Montague on the Gardens Hotel combines theh best of two worlds. In front is the British Museum and the hurly-burly of tourist London, whilst to the rear there's a serene private garden, cut off from the city by a rectangle of fine Georgian townhouses. Between the two lies The Montague on the Gardens Hotel - an intriguing blend of up-to-the-minute city vibrancy and old-world Bloomsbury charm.
