  • International Housekeepers Summit (IHS) is among handful events for Housekeeping fraternity where we get an opportunity to Ideate - debate & Celebrate Housekeeping. When this idea was conceived to amalgamate the various country led forums & bring all concurring people under one umbrella, Housekeeping Aficionado’s never thought this platform will have such humongous growth within such short span of time.

    It is continuing to get better and better and with each one of the participants, groups & organizations more and more essential for those interactive space which is very limited for Housekeepers. In an industry where next week’s news is already too old, IHS allows a great perspective into the best practices and people oriented topics of today.

    Birth of AHA (Asian Housekeepers Association) & IHS has break – down the barriers and unites people into a wonderful group, a valuable tool for everyone to use as a knowledge base and to get technical support from the other members. We know that at a moment’s notice one can call another member and get information on whatever the subject… voice is only a phone call away & the acclimatization among different region’s & fraternity is impressive.

    It is gratifying to see such bunch of dedicated individuals who are to doing such a great jobs & their efforts are sincerely appreciated, For sure this has adorned the housekeeping image in the industry.

  • "When we started, I wasn't sure we could pull this off but the International Housekeepers Summit (#IHS) certainly did it and did it well. This Summit makes us feel recognized and appreciated; it identifies what we have done right and what we should do more of; and it makes constructive criticism easier to accept and integrate
    The aurora of #IHS is too beautiful to be not included in any of #Housekeeper's agenda. It has a very interactive setting, making it the only Summit that's so captivating and intriguing.
    Being associated with #IHS since the day one, has been an absolute honour and privilege. I feel delighted to be associated in its journey since foundation, taking baby steps and now literally on its way to conquer the world of housekeeping.
    With each passing year #IHS is getting positioned well. Attending this summit will be panacea for all housekeeper's problems. The vista of #IHS is surely worth attending. I can only say #IHS is now kith & kin of every housekeeper." - #Pamini Hemaprabha, recipient of the coveted #Asian Housekeeping Award -- Best Housekeeper in Asia Award in 2016 and presently the Complex
