COVER STORY: IntermediaChina’s 2012 Best of Tianjin Awards: Celebrating Exceptional Service in an Exceptional City
Share to

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 made the night of 23 March, 2013 at Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview Hotel a truly remarkable and exceptional one.
 
Organised by InterMediaChina (IMC) and supported by Business Tianjin and Tianjin Plus, the event proved to be the most important international recognised awards in Tianjin. As it honoured and recognized significant personal and professional contributions of exceptional service to Tianjin, China, Asia, and even to the worldwide community.
 
As most of us are aware, Tianjin has become one of the fastest growing economic areas in China, as it has shown remarkable changes in the recent years. Becoming the centre of commerce, culture, education and services in China and even in Asia. With unique multinational projects such as the Sino-Singapore Eco City, Airbus Final Assembly plant, and the Haihe Projects Development, amongst others. Tianjin has cemented its significance place for many innovative practices that will provide international quality products and services. From this concept sprouted the Best of Tianjin Awards by IMC. This award ceremony, aside from celebrating exceptional service, is also an extraordinary platform to develop innovative ideas, new visions and to facilitate empowerment and inclusive growth for development. It is imperative that the recognition and awards go to organisations with internal ethical codes, respect and follow Chinese, European, and US policies, rules and regulations. 
 
The Best of Tianjin Awards is for profit organisations, non-government organisations, non-profit organisations, educational institutions or any other legal individuals or entities registered and recognised in China. The motivation and purpose of the organisations or individuals should benefit the society and empower societal needs at large.
 
Thus, it can be said that the Best of Tianjin Awards 2012 was one of the most important events in the city this year.
During the event, guests were welcomed with a photo shoot and signature walls as drinks and snacks were served. It provided a unique opportunity and social atmosphere for guests to meet and network with key individuals in Tianjin – company executives, experts, professionals, artists and key dignitaries from the government and leading corporations.
 
As the Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview’s banquet doors were opened for the event proper and the sumptuous and delicately-prepared three course set menu was offered to guests. IMC’s chairman Juan Silvestre welcomed guests with a short but meaningful speech which gained a well-deserved applause from the event’s participants. Upon explaining the goals of the event, Mr. Silvestre also emphasised its level of importance in recognising individuals and organisations with remarkable significance, “this is a high quality award. Just look around you, you probably find your friends and your competitors, with the same weight. This (ceremony) is to recognise talents, to enable them to take their projects and daily work to the next level for scaling up and implementation and also to provide them with mentorship and guidance”.
 
The Best of Tianjin Awards unfolded with the announcing of 49 award winners, who were all given a trophy and plaque as a symbol of their success. Performances added vigour to the event, as a Latin dance group wowed the crowd with their undeniably sizzling show, while SaVor Latino, an international Latin band, created an awesome vibe which brought smiles and a enjoyable atmosphere, as they dished out danceable Latin pop songs.
 
Aside from the awards ceremony, over 20 individuals were extra lucky that night as they took home raffle drawn prizes of CNY 500, CNY 2,000, CNY 5,000, CNY 10,000, and for the first prize, a whopping CNY 20,000!
