SKAL Club of Prague - regular luncheon

Skål International Prague

“Club No. 626” was founded on October 18, 1995 as the first in the former communist countries of Central Europe.

At present, Skål International Prague has members from all fields of the tourism industry. They belong among directors or managers of major tourism companies within the international markets (hotels, airlines, travel agents, travel media etc.).

CLUBLIFE

To support the interpersonal relations of our club members, regular events always the last Thursday of each month are being organized. Except of July, which is the only month without an official regular or special event. In June we have our traditional Summer BBQ event, and highlight of the year is always the Christmas Gala Dinner in December, with a charity raffle. These events usually take place in one of our member establishments (hotels/restaurants).

For our regular monthly events, we are inviting interesting guest-speakers.

Since our primary goal is “Doing Business Among Friends”, the networking part of our activities is an absolute priority for our Club.

YOUNG SKÅL

An inseparable part of a healthy club is also supporting the Young SKÅL chapter. Students of tourism related fields until the age of 27 have special opportunities. They can make use of the club’s offers and facilities to successfully graduate and become a valuable part of the tourism business.

SKÅL Prague Monthly Luncheons

SKAL Club of Prague - regular luncheons

As already mentioned, networking is something we believe to be one of the most important advantages within Skål International. Therefore, we in Prague are organizing regular luncheons, always the last Thursday in the month. These events are formal and usually held at our member facilities. Very popular for those events are guest-speakers. It’s our aim to invite interesting people from all branches, not only tourism.

Upcoming Events

SKÅL Prague Special Events

SKAL International Prague - Summer BBQ

Besides our regular meetings, we have also special events within the year. One is the informal Summer BBQ in June, also for friends or spouses of our members. And the other is the Christmas Gala Dinner in December (for friends and spouses, too), which starts very formal and usually ends up as a great party. In addition, we are organizing several ad-hoc events like bowling evenings, etc.

Past Events

December 2022 Christmas Gala Dinner

Our traditional Christmas Gala Dinner – highlight of the year and the best opportunity to enjoy the festive season. It was held at the Boccaccio Ball Room (Grand Hotel Bohemia) and besides our charity raffle and DJ, we could also enjoy a very interesting dancing performance. Also, we would like to express our special thanks to the team of the hotel’s Director Mr. Petr Beránek and his F&B team. We wish all of us Merry Christmas and all the best for the upcoming year 2023. 

November 2022 Luncheon

The newly in 2022 opened hotel The Julius was for all of us a completely new experience and thanks to our host, Mr. Zdeněk Kovařík, GM of the hotel, we had a wonderful luncheon. Not only the interiors but especially the hospitality combined with great cuisine shall predestine great future to this hotel.

October 2022 Luncheon

It’s always good to have a regular meeting at the Penta Hotel Prague, where the GM, and our fellow Skalleague, Johannes Schuschu with his team are always preparing an event not to be forgotten. This time we had also the opportunity to taste wines from our Skalleagues Ruben and Ignacio (winetapas.cz), who are importing (not only) biodynamic wines from Spain and France. Thank you all!
