The results of the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2010 in association with Bloomberg Television have been revealed and Heritance Tea Factory is rightly proud to be amongst the winners. Successful entrants were announced at a high profile gala dinner held at the Langham Hotel in Hong Kong on April 16th and Heritance Tea Factory was delighted to be presented with an award in the category of Best Hotel, Construction and Design. Presenter for the evening was Paul Gordon, news broadcaster for Bloomberg Television.
The event is part of the International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious competition dedicated to identifying the best real estate professionals across the globe. Scooping one of these coveted awards is proof that Heritance Tea Factory is not only able to compete at this level but also win within the highly competitive Asia Pacific property arena.
Later this year, the highest scoring winners from the Asia Pacific Property Awards will compete against other winning companies from Europe, the UK, Europe & Africa, the Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category. Last year, the Asia Pacific region scooped no less than seven World’s Best awards – two more than the year before and an amazing feat. No doubt the property industry will be watching and waiting to see if this record number of international wins can be matched or even beaten in 2010.
The judging panel is formed by a large group of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is unsurpassed by any other property awards. This year’s judges include Ben Wood, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Patrick Grove, executive chairman of i.Property.com Group Asia Ltd; Thijis Stoffer, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes magazine and Iris Dunbar, British Institute of Interior Design.
Mr. Malin Hapugoda, Managing Director, Aitken Spence Hotels said of the award,
“Heritance Tea Factory is the result of the successful development of an abandoned tea factory into an eco-friendly world class hotel and we are delighted that the recently re-branded Heritance Tea Factory has won this prestigious accolade. ”
