On August 29, before an audience of 160 distinguished hospitality industry guests, Urbanatomy – HK Focus Media successfully held its 3rd annual That’s Hospitality Awards at The Peninsula Beijing.

Launched in 2017 at the W Shanghai on the Bund, the That’s Hospitality Awards celebrates the very best of China’s diverse and world-class hospitality industry. The following year, in 2018, the luxurious awards ceremony grew in stature, with over 200 leading industry figures from across China descending on the Conrad Guangzhou to see more than 100 hotels recognized for their excellence.

During this year’s month-long voting period, over 1,000,000 votes from around China were cast across 33 categories. During the August 29 awards ceremony, our management team presented a total of 115 awards to these winners. 

The That’s 2019 Hospitality Awards would not have been the success that it was without the amazing support of the 200-plus sponsors, partners and media groups that got behind this year’s event. Sponsored by The Peninsula Beijing, Voss, CAMUS, Hainan Airlines, Plan B and JUSTEGG, we’re proud to announce that the That’s 2019 Hospitality Awards was one of our best yet, and we must admit we’re already looking forward to next year’s celebration!
