Historic Hotel St. Regis to Host Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce Third Quarter Networking Event & Business Mixer

UPCOMING EVENT! - The Lebanese American Chamber of Commerce (LACC) is pleased to announce its Third Quarter Networking Event & Business Mixer in conjunction with the recent re-grand opening of the Hotel St. Regis in the New Center Area of Downtown Detroit. The Event will take place on Tuesday, September 25, 2007 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Through special arrangement, the LACC tempts you to go 'Behind the Scenes' this Autumn on an exclusive guided tour with host Fadi Achour, General Manager of the newly renovated Hotel St. Regis! The historic hotel has a significant connection with the Lebanese community in so many ways: Back in 1979 the Hotel played host to what would be the future President of Lebanon Cheikh Amine Gemayel who stayed there on a working visit to the United States; the Hotel neighbors the Lebanese Consulate Offices in Detroit where a large flag of the Republic of Lebanon flies proudly for all to see; and overseeing the renovation and currently managing the overall operations is the Hotel's Lebanese-born General Manager Fadi Achour. The over $3M refurbishment of this Michigan landmark is now the inn place to be downtown - bringing sexy back by recalling the original's stately elegance but with a modern, more casual style. Few Detroit hotels can rightfully boast of a history as rich the St. Regis, which has played host to such diverse and notable travelers as Martin Luther King and Mick Jagger to name a few. EVERYONE is welcome to attend this FREE LACC Event and savor the Hotel's Motown-themed La Musique Restaurant's mouth watering hors d'oeuvres, meet and network with Detroit's movers & shakers, tour the new exclusive guest suites & ballrooms, sample an in-house wine tasting, and receive fun giveaways and 'sur-prize' gifts - courtesy of our sponsors. Bring your business cards and come hear the Hotel's inside story at this one-of-a kind briefing!
