We have provided our staff with comprehensive training on the subtleties of the tourism and hotel sector. As a matter of fact, we are proud that some of our former employees have moved on to join internationally renowned hotels using the training and experience they have obtained at Qafqaz Hotels. As a group, we are working on promoting the brand name of Qafqaz Hotels and Resorts, not only in Azerbaijan, but also around the world. To this end, we participate in annual international tourism exhibitions. However, it is worth noting that Qafqaz Hotels is already known fairly well throughout the world.
