The Onda Cero Mallorca Awards have recognized, for the ninth consecutive year, the work of all those people or entities that contribute to the progress of the Mallorcan community, as well as those who stand out for their work both within and outside the island.
On this occasion, the Jury recognized the ‘Circular Hotels’ project by Time with the “Onda Cero Mallorca 2020 Corporate Responsibility Award”. This is a pioneering project to which six companies have joined, including the Palma Congress Center, and it aims to help the hotel industry transition towards a circular economy model for waste management and the reintroduction of processed waste into the economic cycle in order to minimise its environmental impact.
The secretary of the jury and regional director of Atresmedia Radio and Onda Cero in the Balearic Islands, Juan Carlos Enrique Forcada, highlighted the importance of these awards that aim to “put the media focus on those people, groups and projects that contribute to the progress of the island in all areas”.
TaPalma is the tapas & cocktails route in Palma, and this year it will be held from November 25 to 29. In addition, on November 23, two days before the gastronomic route, TaPalma will celebrate the tapas contest at the Palau de Congressos de Palma, for the third year.
Bureau Veritas, a market leader in inspection, certification and testing, has completed the certification of the Meliá Hotels International “Stay Safe with Meliá” programme of preventative measures to combat COVID-19 and has also confirmed a level of compliance of 100% in company hotels.
The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to reduce the pressure on the public health system in the Balearic Islands led to the Meliá Palma Bay Hotel and Palma Convention Centre being converted into hospitals in late March under the management of the Son Llàtzer University Hospital.
