HONG KONG, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Asia was awarded 'Asia's Most Reliable Trade Show Organiser Award' in Hong Kong's Most Valuable Companies Awards (HKMVCA) 2016 on 12 November. The Awards Night was held at Harbour Grand Kowloon Hotel in Hong Kong.


This was the first time that an award category was added for exhibition organisers. Organised by Mediazone Group, publisher of the Hong Kong Most Valued Company (HKMVC), the Awards celebrates accomplished and promising Hong Kong-based and foreign companies for adding value to Hong Kong's business.

Jimé Essink, President & CEO of UBM Asia, said: "We are deeply honoured to be the first winner of this Award and the only winner in this sector. It is a great endorsement of UBM Asia's successful expansion strategy in the last eight years and our commitments to excel and provide the best customer experience for both exhibitors and visitors."

The Hong Kong's Most Valuable Companies Awards are based on and hosted by the territory's largest circulating English-language business annual published since the year 2000 by the Mediazone Group of Publications in Hong Kong. The Awards were instituted to recognise true corporate advancement in terms of quality of product/service and commitment to improvisation, the pillars on which the Hong Kong economy rests.

Each year the Board of Editors using several print and online channels across a predetermined range of key industries, locate companies that have made a significant contribution to industry and market. These companies are chosen for a wide range of qualities including but not restricted to, best business practices, internal quality control, social responsibility, innovation, customer satisfaction, on-line customer reach and increase in overall growth. From these, successive rounds of elimination result in the list of finalists which is finally approved by the Publisher's Office after which the companies are informed for their nomination.
