DEVO Guest

“The participation at this forum is a good opportunity to talk with those who drive the development of the city. Only through good cooperation and understanding between the developer, architect, project manager and contractor, we can finally build viable, efficient and beautiful communities. The presentation of the most successful projects from each field and the meeting with key professionals from each sector, contribute to building an appropriate development strategy. As an architect, it is essential to understand what the community wants and how to build these things in an efficient way. It is our duty to make the cities we build better, and this can be done in team. “

Adrian Soare

Senior Manging Partner, CUMULUS

DEVO Guest

“We believe that quality architecture stimulates the society and each of us to evolve and builds new mentalities. We have built CUMULUS to professionally and responsibly support those major investments that form a true infrastructure of prosperity. We are present at DEVO for an open exchange of ideas and strategies with those who contribute directly and significantly to the community development. “

UP! Berlin

PORTUGAL

Berlin, Germany

UP! Berlin is a transformation of Berlin’s Former Shopping Mall Galeria Kaufhof am Ostbahnhof into a 65.000 sqm mixed-use office building that will be finished in 2021. The investment was 105 million euros. The project is designed by JASPER ARCHITECTS and will be presented at DEVO by Martin Jasper, the director of the architecture office.
The biggest challenge was to bring natural lighting into the monolithic building block of 80m to 80m. The logical consequence of carving out an inner courtyard was twisted around: the presented idea was to cut triangular shaped prisms on each side of the square building, in order to flood the interior with natural light and by this loosen up the massive monolithic geometry of the existing building. These created voids redefine the building’s urban presence entirely, opening the volume up on all four sides. The voids, as well a strategic terracing and twisting of the floors, optimize views to central Berlin. All floors have access to outdoor communal spaces for working, entertaining and relaxing. For the redesign, the existing Building is stripped down to its structural concrete columns and floorplates, then wrapped in high-quality glass. What was once an interior-focused shopping center has been reimagined as an outwardly-focused center for productivity, creativity and community.

VALLEY

PORTUGAL

Amsterdam, the Netherlands

The project was created with the aim of realising a multifunctional building, which included a mixed programme of offices, residences and amenities, covering a total floor area between 50,000 m2 and 75,000 m2.

Valley’s three peaks of varied heights reach up to a maximum of 100-meters at which the publicly accessible Sky-bar sits, spread out over the top two stories, offering panoramic views over Amsterdam.

The building consists of 196 apartments, 7 stories of offices, a three-story underground parking with 375 parking spots and various retail and cultural facilities. From street level, a pedestrianised path, running along retails functions, terraces and roof gardens, leads up to the central valley-area spread across the 4th and 5th level and surrounds the central tower. The project derives its name from the publicly accessible terraced valley that is spread out in-between its three mixed-use, towers.
Till now the project won: OVERALL WINNER of the MIPIM Architectural Review Future Projects Award 2020, and the WINNER of the Commercial Mixed-use category and WAN Awards – Silver.

Chef Ștefan Popescu

Executive Chef, Pullman Bucharest World Trade Center

FORO Guest 

A restaurant is itself a complex investment. One of the current problems in this field is the quality of services, which is why it is imperative to invest in this direction. A restaurant can remain “top” only by maintaining quality – that is why this concept must be understood in detail. Competition is growing in all sectors and the best way to distinguish yourself from others is the reputation you build. The decision to use reputation as a career building tool differs from one sector to another and depends on the professional objective. However, being a professional with visibility becomes an increasingly necessary means of career development.

Bogdan Arsene

General Manager, Best Western Stil Hotel 4*, Bucharest

FORO Guest

The policy of the Best Western Stil hotel has a very important component of customer service. We care about our guests and are very attentive to the feedback they send us through various forms (directly at the hotel reception, in direct meetings with our staff, through the hotel feedback forms, through the pages of TripAdvisor, Booking, Facebook etc.). Feedback from our guests helps us to maintain the level of services and facilities we offer to a certain standard and to make improvements. In the last 2 years we have made significant investments in this regard.

Ciprian Dogaru

Executive Manager, Hotel Ambient 4*, Brașov

FORO Guest

The quality of the services must be continuously improved, and this is done through regular trainings and last-minute information shared with the relevant departments. Maintenance of hotel spaces is also a priority, as good hotel services cannot compensate for unattended space and vice versa. A mix between the two components is ideal and leads to the success of the customer relationship. A hotel’s reputation is its business card. In the online environment, the grades given by the guests are the mirror of the activity of the hotel, and they can be improved by good management and communication with the client.

First and foremost, I want to thank you for your invitation and to congratulate you on the organization of the Forum, which was very well structured, both in terms of the guests, as well as of the topics addressed. It was a day full of – we hope – useful information; when the breaks allowed it, we made the most of the networking part to become acquainted with other Romanian colleagues and to talk about the problems in our farms and what could be improved.

Fermier Invitat
Vreau în primul rând să vă mulțumesc pentru invitația acordată și să vă felicit pentru organizarea Forumului, una foarte bine structurată, atât în baza invitaților, cât și a subiectelor abordate. A fost o zi plină de acumulare de informații, sperăm noi folositoare, iar când ne-au permis pauzele am profitat pe partea de networking cunoscând alți colegi din țară și povestind unii altora cu ce ne lovim în fermele noastre și ce putem îmbunătăți.

Dr. Mircea Cinteză

Șeful Secției Cardiologie 1, Spitalul Universitar de Urgență București

Medic Invitat ROHO

“A fost impresionant interesul pentru Convenția Română a Spitalelor. Un mare număr de participanți au venit la București din întreaga țară. Temele dezbatute sunt importante pentru oricine este implicat în activitatea de management medical.”

Dr. Alina-Bondoc

Director Medical, Medlife Titan, București

Medic Invitat ROHO

”Vă mulțumesc pentru invitatia la ROHO 2017 și mă bucur că am avut prilejul să particip și să ascult profesioniști din managementul medical, atât din România, cât și din străinătate. Consider că un asemenea eveniment pune România pe hartă, ca țară europeană, care oferă servicii de sănătate populației, la standarde de înaltă calitate. Este extrem de important schimbul de experiență și de viziune la nivel de management, pe care îl oferă un eveniment de acest tip, și nu în ultimul rând, posibilitatea de a cunoaște persoane-cheie din acest domeniu și de a lega relații profesionale de durată. Am apreciat în mod deosebit oportunitatea de a crește vizibilitatea sistemului medical privat în fața guvernanților, atât pe plan național, cât și internațional, prin promovarea unor organizații cum ar fi European Union of Private Hospitals (EUHP).”

Petru Șușca

Manager, Spitalul Clinic Județean de Urgență, Cluj

Manager Invitat ROHO

“Convenția Română a Spitalelor se evidențiază în peisajul evenimentelor din România. Reunind profesioniști din domeniul medical, evenimentul devine un prilej de a împărtăși experiență, dar și o ocazie de a interacționa cu oameni cu preocupări similare. Am apreciat alegerea atentă a speakerilor. Cunoștințele acestora sunt de un real folos în munca zilnică și pentru rezolvarea unora dintre problemele cu care ne confruntăm. Calific ediția din 2016 a Convenției Române a Spitalelor drept un eveniment constructiv și de calitate.”

Dr. Elisabeta Raț

Manager, Spitalul Municipal Carei, Satu Mare

Manager Invitat ROHO

”Vă mulțumesc pentru faptul că și în acest an m-ați onorat cu invitația de a participa la acest eveniment. Din prezentările Speakerilor din sănătate, de la noi și din străinătate, am observat că preocuparea deosebită pentru asigurarea calității actului medical și siguranța pacienților câștigă tot mai mult teren în managementul spitalelor publice și private. Cred că, în activitatea zilnică din unitățile sanitare, protocoalele terapeutice și procedurile de lucru implementate, definesc bune practici de eliminare a riscurilor clinice, combaterea infecțiilor asociate asistenței medicale și nu în ultimul rând, o abordare corectă și eficientă a diagnosticării și a tratamentului pacienților.”

Dr. Cristian Radu Jecan

Director Medical, Spitalul „Prof. Dr. Agrippa Ionescu”, București

Medic Invitat ROHO

“Mulțumesc organizatorilor pentru conceptul și formatul evenimentului Convenția Română a Spitalelor ROHO 2017. A fost o onoare și în același timp o experiență remarcabilă să onorez invitația primită. Conferința a oferit un cadru de întâlnire ideal pentru membrii echipelor de management din spitalele românești, prin asigurarea unui cadru propice de schimbare a informațiilor, de împărtășire a problemelor întâlnite în cadrul procesului de management spitalicesc și mai important, a soluțiilor găsite. Participarea specialiștilor și a profesioniștilor din sănătate din alte țări europene în cadrul ROHO, mai ales a celor din zonele învecinate cu România, a asigurat o diseminare largă a unor proiecte și soluții specifice implementate de aceștia, care pot constitui un model și pentru țara noastră.”
