We are excited to announce that the fifth annual That’s National Hospitality Awards will be held in Shanghai this August.
Launched in 2017, to coincide with the launch of our inaugural Explore China travel guide, the event is a celebration of China’s diverse hospitality industry and the key players pushing the needle.
The That’s 2017 Hospitality Awards were held at the W Shanghai – The Bund and saw 200 leading industry professionals from across the PRC gather to witness over 100 hotels honored for their excellence. The following year, we brought the celebration to the Pearl River Delta and the esteemed Conrad, Guangzhou. Over 220 hospitality heavyweights from across China visited Guangzhou for the event.
And in 2019, we successfully held our third annual That’s Hospitality Awards at The Peninsula Beijing, highlighting such a unique group of hotels and resorts across the Middle Kingdom. Last year, we brought together more than a hundred industry leaders to Shenzhen at Sheraton Nanshan Shenzhen to recognize the best of the best for a splendid evening.
