Business Traveller China Awards 2017

It began as a gothic, candlelit evening… it then blossomed into light and magic with the Business Traveller Awards 2017, which is now in its 13th year. Around 250 key individuals were honoured during the evening at New World Beijing Hotel.

Among the winners were Grand Hyatt, which was once again named Best Hotel Brand in the World, while Shangri-La held on to its title of Best Hotel Brand in China.

The luxury categories saw Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund take home the award for Best Luxury Hotel in China. The Opposite House, Beijing, beat sister property The Temple House Chengdu for Best Design Hotel in China titlke. China World Summit Wing, Beijing was voted Best MICE Hotel in China and the Best New Business Hotel in China award went to Intercontinental Beijing Sanlitun.

In keeping with the theme of the evening, entertainment came in the form of a mystical dancer, a band and a mind-reading magician.
