Alilia - a client of Music Concierge and AWARD winners

The second cycle of the AHEAD awards is now in full swing, bringing international hospitality giants, upward-punching independents, and boutique disruptors into contention for some of the biggest awards in the hotel world.

The finale of the first two-year round took place in January this year, seeing the regional winners of 2018’s regional heats fight it out for global titles (while the Music Concierge team took to the decks to soundtrack the night). From the 2019 crop of champions, our clients Alila Hotels & Resorts took home the heavyweight title of ‘AHEAD Global Ultimate Winner’ for its architecturally astonishing sugar-mill conversion Alila Yangshuo.

With the first awards cycle complete, the second has kicked off in earnest, starting with AHEAD Asia at Andaz Singapore in March (kudos to our friends at the Middle House in Shanghai for taking home gongs in both the Lobby & Public Spaces and Spa & Wellness categories), and followed by AHEAD Americas last month. The MEA and Europe rounds will take place in November, and Music Concierge is once again on soundtrack duty for both events. Be sure to let us know if we’ll see you there.
