Fairmont El San Juan Hotel launches new initiative: Engaging conversations at the iconic Chico Cabaret

Panel discussion

By Judy Gordon-Conde and Jennifer Conde-Powers

Recently, Fairmont El San Juan Hotel launched a new discussion series in the elegant Chico Cabaret titled “Cabaret Conversations.”

The inaugural “Cabaret Conversations” session, which kicked off in honor of Women’s History Month, featured a diverse panel of influential women from various entrepreneurial backgrounds in Puerto Rico. The panel included Betty Martínez, a renowned designer and owner of Beamina, a contemporary handbag line; Lulu Puras, a well-known home décor specialist; and Laura Cantero, the executive director of Grupo Guayacán, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and development of local entrepreneurs.

The ladies attending enjoyed a fabulous breakfast buffet and champagne courtesy of Veuve Clicquot as they mixed and mingled to share their own stories. As a bonus, José Padín, general manager of the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel, discussed how this new series celebrates who we are in the entrepreneurial space, inclusivity, gastronomy and entertainment, and how the fabulous Fairmont El San Juan Hotel is a conduit for these new experiences.

Katerina Sagardía, communications and public relations senior manager, added that these new intimate conversations at the Chico Cabaret, located in the hotel’s lobby, would be available for anyone every Wednesday, with dates being May 15, June 5, Aug. 14, Oct. 16 and Dec. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information, visit:
