Press review

April 2012:

While visiting Geneva, Group MBC set up headquarters in the Beau-Rivage.

Beau-Rivage, anchored in Geneva hospitality for five generations, is a committed player in the international and human interests of the city itself.
The Mayer family has been involved on a daily basis in defending the values which they hold dear and for maintaining the image of Geneva as an international city.

To this end, Beau-Rivage hosted a team of 20 people of the Group Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) – a leading media group of the Middle East – for two days of their one week trip to Switzerland, while they covered stories relating to Switzerland’s worldwide notoriety. Topics included the banking, chocolate, and clock industries, as well as Geneva’s international presence. These stories were approached and told through the eyes of the originating citizens and Swiss personalities from Eastern countries.

The Atrium of the Hotel was thus transformed into a television studio during the filming of the show and interviews. This lovely initiative delighted both the Mayer family and the Beau-Rivage team.
