Successful companies have been invited to attend a high profile gala presentation dinner at the J. W. Marriott Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on April 27th when the official announcements will be made. Following the success of last year’s event in Shanghai, the organisers will also be hosting a two-day Property & Hospitality Summit on April 26th and 27th at the same venue. Attended by presidents, CEOs, managing directors, chairmen and other decision makers, the event presents an ideal opportunity to make connections and generate new business. The Summit is open to all industry related companies and suppliers in addition to award participants.
The JW Marriott Hotel is located in the heart of the exciting Golden Triangle, the city’s prime business and shopping district and is adjoining to the prestigious Starhill Gallery. It is also strategically located on Bintang Walk, the lively and vibrant shopping strip.
These awards are operated by the organisation that has run the International Property Awards for the last 18 years. Its aim is to seek out the best hotels from each country including those that have been purpose-built for conventions, spa, airports or resorts. Other sections include best sustainable hotel together with best hotel architecture, interior design, marketing and website. Hotel projects are chosen for their green credentials, excellent architectural merit and design. Eighteen different countries took part and the competition was extremely keen with entries across the board being of the highest standard.
Later this year, top scoring winners from the Asia Pacific Hotel Awards will compete against other winning companies from Europe, Africa, the Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category. The final results will be revealed at a gala presentation dinner in London.
Stuart Shield, president of the International Hotel Awards, says, “We are delighted to enter the second year of the stand alone Hotel Awards with such a superb level of entries from across the length and breadth of the Asia Pacific region. – both in number and quality. It will be really interesting to see how the region stands up to global competition when we judge the contenders for the World’s Best awards.”
