With a balanced mix of foreign professionals and Chinese experts, Riviera Events maintain great ability in meeting the needs and challenges a multinational company faces in adapting to the complex Chinese market.
With several years of operation and having built a reputation as the leading event agency for the hospitality industry, Co-Founders Stephane de Montgros and Benoit Thebaut decided to expand. Over the last few years China has experienced explosive growth within the hospitality industry which is set to continue unabated. With China being at the forefront of international and domestic travel, Stephane and Benoit saw an opportunity and thus The Hotelier Awards was born.
The Hotelier Awards is the first and only accolade in China that honours the dedicated professionals at a hotel rather than the property itself. The annual event is an overdue recognition bestowed upon individuals who are the best in their field.
The first two editions garnered a lot of attention from both the media and the industry. Over the 2 years close to 600 applications were collected from 160 properties and 55 brands. Due to the great success of the China editions of The Hotelier Awards, it will now be expanding into the ASEAN region. For more information about The Hotelier Awards click here.
