2° Lugar Concurso #UnMexicoParaTodos


Following the bases of its call, the collaborators of Catalonia reinterpreted the GPTW logo making reference to the company’s happiness and work well-being.

For this, they chose the beautiful location of the Catalonia Playa Maroma Resort, where they used the natural elements of it:

  • With the seaweed and sand, they made the letters PLACE TO WORK.
    They summoned 140 collaborators with whom they recreated a happy face.
    To top off the composition they placed the landmark Catalonia on the seashore, to frame the shot.
    So, by way of an imaginary game CATALONIA- HAPPY PLACE TO WORK.
    For this exercise, the collaborators of all the operative and administrative areas of the hotel worked together in a coordinated way to achieve the photo area with a drone in only 25 min.

About 50 photos participated in this contest and with more than 6100 likes, Catalonia Hotels & Resorts took second place for the second time, thanks to all the collaborators, family members, guests and friends who favored the photographic proposal with their support.
