Best of Tianjin Awards: Celebrating Exceptional Service in an Exceptional City
 
 
 
 
 
A resounding success is the perfect description for the 2012 Best of Tianjin Awards ceremony. With 600 guests, 49 awards, 20 lucky draw winners, and not to mention a number of great Latin-inspired performances, the night of 23 March, 2013 at the Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel was a truly remarkable and exceptional one.
 
Organised by InterMediaChina (IMC) and supported by Business Tianjin and Tianjin Plus publications, the event proved to be the most important international recognition in Tianjin as it honoured and recognised the significant personal and professional contributions of exceptional service to Tianjin, to China, and to the worldwide community.
 
Before the event, guests were welcomed by photographers and signature walls as drinks and snacks were being served. It provided a unique opportunity and social atmosphere for guests to meet and network with key individuals in Tianjin 鈥 company executives, experts, professionals, artists, and key dignitaries from the government and leading corporations.
 
As Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel鈥檚 banquet doors were opened for the event proper and the sumptuous three course set menu, IMC鈥檚 chairman Mr. Juan Silvestre welcomed guests with a short but meaningful speech which gained a well-deserved applause from the event participants. Silvestre emphasised in his welcome speech that 鈥淭his is a very high level award. Just look around you, you probably find your friends and your competitors, with the same weight. This (ceremony) is about recognising talents and enabling people to take their projects and daily work to the next level for scaling up and implementation, and also provide them with mentorship and guidance鈥.
 
The event unfolded with the announcement of 49 winners who were all given a trophy and plaque as certificate. Performances added vigour to the event as a Latin dance group wowed the crowd with their undeniably sizzling performances while SaVor Latino, an international Latin band, created an awesome vibe which brought smiles and an enjoyable atmosphere as they dished out danceable Latin pop songs.
 
Aside from the winners of the awards ceremony, over 20 individuals were extra lucky that night as they brought home raffle draw prizes of 500 CNY, 2,000 CNY, 5,000 CNY, 10,000 CNY and for the first prize, a whopping 20,000 CNY!
