Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - RTAP 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…

In­ter­na­tional news chan­nel France 24 was launched in De­cem­ber 2006 in English and French. Shortly af­ter­wards, the chan­nel also be­gan broad­cast­ing in Ara­bic. Septem­ber 26, 2017 marked a new phase in France 24’s de­vel­op­ment with the launch of a fourth chan­nel in Span­ish.

To­day, as a global mul­ti­me­dia news broad­caster, France 24 boasts 160 cor­re­spon­dent bu­reaus world­wide and delivers 24/7 in­ter­na­tional news cov­er­age to 333 mil­lion house­holds across the world. In Asia, more than 60 mil­lion house­holds re­ceive the chan­nel in ei­ther English, French or in both lan­guages.

France 24 of­fers view­ers com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age of world events, with a fo­cus on cul­tural di­ver­sity and con­trast­ing view­points via news bul­letins, re­ports, mag­a­zines and de­bates. The di­ver­sity in ori­gin and background of its jour­nal­ists gives the con­tent a unique touch, and helps main­tain the spirit of de­bate and free­dom of speech that is one of the as­sets most val­ued by au­di­ences all over the world.

France 24 al­lows busi­ness trav­ellers in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion to keep up to date with all the world’s lat­est events, busi­ness news and in­ter­na­tional de­vel­op­ments, in both English and in French. Ex­plor­ing top­ics and re­gions that other chan­nels don’t gen­er­ally cover, and en­sur­ing re­ac­tiv­ity and on­the-ground knowl­edge the world over, France 24 of­fers trav­ellers per­ti­nent cov­er­age, what­ever their coun­try of ori­gin.
