BEIJING, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Wanda Hotels & Resorts has won a prestigious World Travel Market "Global Award" 2013 in recognition of its development of luxury hotels in China over the past 12 months. Only 12 tourism enterprises around the world won the honor this year and the Company is the only one to receive the honor in China.

The Awards give WTM's Official Media Partners - which represent key travel industry media around the world - an excellent platform to congratulate and recognize those companies and individuals which have made the greatest contributions to travel and tourism in their region for that year. Three nominations from each media partner were judged in September by a panel of three, including an independent body, a representative of WTM and the relevant media partner. Wanda Hotels & Resorts has made a significant contribution to the luxury hotel sector in China over the past year.

The World Travel Market is the top event in the global tourism industry, and is held annually in London. It provides industry professionals with a superb platform for information communication, business negotiation, as well as a peak into the developing trends in the international tourism industry.

Reed Travel Exhibitions, Senior Director, World Travel Market, Simon Press said, "Wanda Hotels & Resorts are an unusual example of how Chinese luxury brands are developing, not only domestically but internationally. It looks to be an exciting investment for the future."

It is our utmost honor for us to win the "Global Awards" by WTM. It represents recognition for Wanda Hotels and Resorts' extraordinary contribution to the booming Chinese hotel industry, as well a demonstration of Chinese hotel brands' rapid progress and growing international influence in the world. It is worth mentioning that this is the first ever award won by Wanda Hotels and Resorts since its establishment. Thus, it bears significant historic meaning for us. This June, Wanda Group announced the merger of Sunseeker Yachts of Britain and spent seven hundred million pounds building a five-star hotel in London; by 2015, there will be more than 100 members under Wanda Hotels and Resorts, making us the largest hotel owner in the world; in the next decade, Wanda will extend the brand to eight to 10 major cities around the world. Wanda Hotels and Resorts is constantly promoting the internationalization of the brand in the process of realizing its international strategic layout.
