The Global Times Diplomats' Choice Award Ceremony took place at the China World Hotel, Beijing on 17 February 2017. Over 100 guests, including diplomats from over 30 embassies, representatives from five-star hotels, international schools, hospitals and clinics, and airline companies attended the award ceremony.
Among the participating guests were ten ambassadors from the embassies of Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Uruguay, Croatia, Tunisia, Nepal, Bulgaria, Maldives, and Palestine. Fifteen general managers of five-star hotels also attended.
The main part of the award ceremony consisted of giving out the grand awards in eight categories. Categories included best airline, best international school, best hospital and clinic, best hotel brand, best design hotel, best lifestyle hotel, best F&B hotel, and best business hotel.
This is the third annual event, which involves Diplomats across Beijing voting on their favourite in each category.
The British School of Beijing, Shunyi was honoured to be chosen as the first place winner in the category of "Best International School".
