2017 Reader Poll results
The votes have been cast and counted, and we can now reveal the winners of the 2017 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards…
The Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards is now in its 26th year and continues to celebrate the best in the travel and hospitality industry as voted by some of the region’s most qualified judges: our Business Traveller Asia-Pacific subscribers. These 30,000-plus individuals are frequent travellers – taking an average of 19 business trips a year – and as such their views provide valuable industry feedback.
Between April and June, Business Traveller AsiaPacific sent out a voting poll to subscribers, with the results independently compiled by market research leader Ipsos.
The winners were announced at an exclusive presentation luncheon at the Conrad Hong Kong Hotel on September 8 – a full rundown can be found on the following pages.
As you will see, a number of brands have held on to their award-winning positions from 2016, reflecting their ongoing popularity and pursuit of excellence. But there are also some significant new winners, indicating the healthy competition and growth in this industry.
Enjoy the results! And if you should find yourself disagreeing with the rankings, make sure you subscribe to Business Traveller Asia-Pacific for the opportunity to share your views next year…
