About Us

Our History

The adventure began in the city of Montreux, Switzerland.

Hubert and Hans, both studying Hotel Management, initially shared a room on the school campus before renting a small chalet together. This marked the beginning of a long-lasting friendship they jokingly refer to as their “second marriage after their wives.”

Initially, Hubert established a commercial representation office with the aim of finding charming locations in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg for organizing seminars. Soon, he was joined by Hans.

A’venue International” was born, driven by the desire to manage small hotels and organize international trips for groups of all sizes.

Why A’venue International? As they sought and offered unique and charming venues to their clients, the idea of using the English term “a venue” to represent their profession seemed fitting, as well as their aspiration to expand internationally.

After four years as a duo, Hans and Hubert were joined by other collaborators who helped evolve the agency over the years.
