International Women’s Day St. Gotthard Hotel

St. Gotthard Hotel has made it a tradition to celebrate Women’s Day on the 8th of March in style. For many years the hotel has gathered women to celebrate the holiday, to network, to enjoy the evening’s entertainment, dance and just have fun.

Swiss power women Ljuba Manz and Raquel Marquard hosted Ladies’ Night 2019 in the St. Gotthard hotel that included a three-course dinner, fashion show and a party.

The evening started with a beautiful uplifting speech by the prominent Swiss entrepreneur and board of directors president of Manz Privacy Hotels (a group which Hotel St. Gotthard is part of), Ljuba Manz. Miss Manz encouraged the women to enjoy life to the fullest, stay disciplined and spoil themselves from time to time.

After the lucky winners of the raffle were revealed, the guests enjoyed a catwalk full of summer outfits from the luxury department store in Zurich Jelmoli, young Swiss sportswear brand INA KESS and lingerie label Beldona. The models were also presenting beautiful creations by Austrian jeweler A.E. Köchert. After the dessert there was a small tour into the presidential suite of St. Gotthard to have a closer look at the pieces from the fashion show and receive goodie-bags.

This year in addition to the ladies night, a gentlemen’s evening was organized at the Hummer Bar, where lobsters, meat, cigars and good company was on the menu.
