The Cathay Pacific Business Awards were launched in 2005 by Cathay Pacific Airways to recognise and reward UK business dynamism and success in Hong Kong and China. As well as honouring and raising the profile of enterprises that have capitalised on the opportunities available to operate successfully and profitably in Hong Kong and China, the awards are a fantastic opportunity for leading companies to gain invaluable insights into this corporate environment.
The prestige of winning a Cathay Pacific Business Award is accompanied by significant advantages for further promotion and recognition. Richard Margolis, Regional Director for The Pacific Star Award–winning Rolls-Royce, North East Asia, describes the region as “one of the world’s fastest-growing economies [where] strong relationships will become even more valuable”, and emphasises the value his customers and partners in China and Hong Kong place on their support. Steve Gilman, CEO of B&Q Asia, adds that “winning the award last year was a great honour for B&Q China... and helped to raise awareness...with consumers and government”, while also being “good local PR ahead of the opening of B&Q’s first store in Hong Kong in June 2007”.
There are three awards categories, and you may enter as many as you wish:
1. The Continued Commitment Award, recognising outstanding and continued commitment to Hong Kong and China by an established UK-based company, through past efforts or future projects.
2. The Spirit of Hong Kong Award, recognising the contribution that companies have made towards building the strength and reputation of Hong Kong’s business community.
3. The Rising Stars Award, rewarding business dynamism and success of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in Hong Kong and China.
The three winning companies will have the opportunity to send two employees on an exclusive trip to Beijing and Hong Kong in early 2008. The prize trip offers the lucky attendees unrivalled insights into the current state of the China and Hong Kong markets as well as numerous high-profile networking opportunities.
