“Let me thank all the staff of the Thermal Hotel for their long-term cooperation in the organisation of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
For us, as festival organisers, the Thermal Hotel plays a pivotal role. It is the irreplaceable centre of the whole festival. Without the premises and services it offers, it would be impossible to organise an event of such importance and scale. We know that the renovation of the Thermal Hotel was inevitable to meet the highest international standards. We appreciate that the hotel management has prepared such a renovation plan that will not jeopardize the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
We are aware of the increased demands that each year’s festival places on the management and staff of the Thermal Hotel, and value this cooperation. We believe that it will successfully go on in the years to come. We look forward to seeing you in Karlovy Vary.”
