We are delighted to announce that the sixth edition This is The 2022 National Hospitality Awards will be held in Shanghai in December.
We originally planned to hold the award ceremony in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, but due to the current pandemic situation in the provincial capital, we have decided to relocate to Shanghai.
Launched in 2017, to coincide with the unveiling of our first Explore China travel guide, the event is a celebration of the various key players in China’s hospitality industry.
During our sixth annual party, we are delighted to launch WeChat official account “CityExplorer (在那里)” and Explore China official webpage at thatsmags.com. New digital platforms provide more functional and up-to-date travel information and advice for overseas and Chinese audiences.
The This is Hospitality Awards 2017 took place at W Shanghai – The Bund and saw 200 leading industry professionals from across the Middle Kingdom come together to witness more than 100 hotels honored for excellence. The following year, we held the celebration in the Greater Bay Area at the prestigious Conrad Hotel in Guangzhou. More than 220 hotel heavyweights from all over China traveled to Guangzhou for the event.
And in 2019, we successfully held our third This is Hospitality Awards at The Peninsula Beijing, highlighting a unique group of hotels and resorts from across the Middle Kingdom. In 2020, we brought together over a hundred industry leaders at the Sheraton Nanshan Shenzhen to reward the best of the best for a splendid evening.
Last year we organized the fifth This is Hospitality Awards return to Langham Shanghai, Xintiandi, where over 200 guests gathered for a night of fun, drink and awards.
This year we are throwing the party in Shanghai for a celebration of the hospitality industry at This is 2022 Hospitality Awards in December.
Under the age-old slogan “Forget the travel, go for the destination”, the event aims to introduce Chinese culture and the country’s most famous tourist destinations and hotels to an international audience.
