Hurun Report, renowned for its annual China Rich List of tycoons, has recently hosted Shanghai’s Best Presidential Suites Awards.
The awards ceremony was held on 15 June, timed to coincide with the opening of the Asia Luxury Travel Market, the region’s leading showcase for the luxury travel industry.
“Before now China’s luxury consumers have had little idea of Shanghai’s top suites and executive club lounges, despite the fact that hotels spend so much money on them,” says Rupert Hoogewerf, founder of Hurun Report
“We created a scorecard to assess and rank the top Presidential Suites and Executive Club Lounges, many of which are truly outstanding.”

The 2009 edition of the China International Luxury Property Show will be held on September 25-27, in Shanghai, supported by LP – Luxury Properties magazine.
For the fourth consecutive year, CILPS will present to Chinese elite and wealthiest investors a selection of exclusive properties for sale from all over the world.
More than 4,000 high profile investors visited the Show last year, confirming the appetite of China’s elite for overseas premium real estate investments, and the growing globalization of the China market.
Despite a slowing market, luxury home prices in Shanghai are likely to remain stable or grow in the second half of this year mainly due to the scarcity of land downtown, says Asia Property Report.
