Inter Hotel Games, Sport, teamwork and a good cause

The Inter-Hotel Games are a sports event that has been taking place since 2015, in this event, several transports will be held by the staff of different hotels in Barcelona.

Doing sport together helps to improve interpersonal relationships between each hotel team, as well as meeting people from other hotels.

One of the main goals of #iHotelGamesBCN is to raise funds for the foundation Nutrition Without Borders, so all benefits will go to this organization that takes food to the most disadvantaged places.
