After months of preparation and anticipation, the That’s 2018 Hospitality Awards were held last night at the Conrad Guangzhou, the event’s first appearance in the Pearl River Delta. 

Launched last year, That’s Hospitality Awards celebrates the very best of China’s diverse and world-class hospitality industry. Last night’s gala dinner was attended by over 220 prominent personalities from around China, among them hotel professionals, industry suppliers and members of the diplomatic and business community. 

The ceremony bestowed honors on the most innovative, ambitious and acclaimed hotels in China. Thirty-three awards were given out over 10 categories, with over 100 hotels honored. 

The That's 2018 Hospitality Awards party kicked off with a lovely wine and cocktail reception outside the Conrad Guangzhou’s grand ballroom. We then moved into the ballroom for the awards ceremony. A huge thanks to our wine sponsor Summergate Fine Wines, water sponsor FIJI Water, spirit sponsor Camus and our ‘Gold Sponsor,’ Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon Airways. And of course, a major thank you to the team at Conrad Guangzhou for hosting us in their fabulous ballroom!  

Before we unveil the big winners from last night’s party, let’s take a photographic look back at the festivities!
