As has become traditional in HipoGes, on December 13th and 20th in Valencia and Madrid respectively, the Christmas dinners of HipoGes’ offices in Spain were held.
The place chosen to hold the dinner was Convent Carmen. For over 400 years, this emblematic building was formerly convent in Valencia and it has now been transformed into a space that offers leisure, cultural and gastronomic experiences.
In total, 100 people (18 from Madrid’s office) gathered in this unique venue to enjoy a cheerful evening with the team outside the office.
The theme of the party brought us back to the 1920’s, a very popular theme that had a great adherence from the guests who dressed thoroughly, along with some accessories available in the party.
During the dinner the winners of the HipoGes Awards were revealed. Voted by all colleagues, this year the winners were those who best represented each HipoGes’ value: Trust, Commitment, Transparency and Ambition. In addition, special prizes were also awarded in other categories.
Guadi Gómez (Administration) and Juanmi Ribes (Real Estate) were in charge of presenting the awards. The winners in each category were:

Javier Garde, Mar García, Ana Torrijos, Lorena Ruiz, Anna Calabuig, Carla Cuesta (Retail Loans). This category awarded the team that most committed to CSR initiatives and practices and to HipoCare welfare plan.
The biggest dinner of all was held in Madrid. A total of 293 people attended, 17 of whom were colleagues from Lisbon’s office, 4 were from Valencia and 1 from Oporto.
The venue chosen for the event was the Ramsés restaurant. Located between Serrano and Retiro in Madrid, this prestigious restaurant with different areas and gastronomic offerings is one of the biggest references for leisure and gastronomic experiences in the Spanish capital.
Thanks to the theme, the dinner was attended by hundreds of “Gangsters”. Once again, all the guests made an effort to adapt to the theme, which turned out to be a success.
