NUO Hotel Beijing is proud to announce that it has been named Official Hotel Sponsor of the 5th British Polo Day China 2015, scheduled to take place in Beijing’s prestigious Tang Polo Club on 13th September 2015, with the hotel’s logo displayed prominently on the China Polo Team players’ shirts in recognition of the hotel’s support.
The hotel will also be presenting the award for “Best Playing Pony” after the day’s matches, which will see top players in competition, such as George Meyrick, Chevy Beh, Miguel Diaz and China’s very own Shilai Liu, Owner of Tang Polo Club and a highly accomplished polo player himself.
” All of us at NUO Hotel Beijing are absolutely thrilled and very honoured to play an active partnership role as the Official Hotel Sponsor of British Polo Day China during their fifth anniversary, ” said Adrian Rudin, General Manager of NUO Hotel Beijing.
Mr. Rudin continued: ” Part of NUO Hotel Beijing’s brand values is its commitment to serve as a custodian of Chinese culture, as illustrated in our hotel’s design and guest experiences inspired by cultural elements of the Ming Dynasty. We found it particularly striking that polo, as an ancient sport, shares a long history with imperial China, as it originated from the plains of central Asia on the famed Silk Road to China and later became popular among the imperial nobility during the Tang Dynasty. Our supporting role for the 2015 British Polo Day China, the very modern incarnation of this sport, is our way to continuing to operate under NUO’s guiding philosophy of ‘using the past to serve the present’. ”
During the British Polo Day China, which marks the fifth time that the British Polo Day Global Series returns to Beijing, NUO Hotel Beijing celebrates a day of superb amateur polo sportsmanship highlighting the historical ties that exist between China and Great Britain, alongside such prestigious global brands as Land Rover, Royal Salute, Harrods, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Champagne Taittinger, Hackett London, Holland & Holland, Abercrombie & Kent, Justerini & Brooks, British Silverware, Billionaire.com and many more. The hotel’s sponsorship of the event includes providing exclusive accommodation for the event’s select group of distinguished VIP guests, members of the nobility and high society, celebrities, business titans, tastemakers and luminaries from the worlds of fashion and entertainment. In addition, during an outside catering event for British Polo Day China to be attended by over 500 people, NUO Hotel Beijing will be deploying its team of world-class culinary professionals who have already started to build a reputation for serving the finest and freshest food in Beijing at the hotel’s restaurants, with ingredients carefully sourced from NUO’s own green organic farms.
NUO Hotel Beijing’s sponsorship and support are both strategic and crucial for the British Polo Day’s ongoing philanthropic efforts, which has been entirely committed to bringing to bear the full weight of its partners, network and creative talent to this end. In 2015, the British Polo Day’s cumulative running total of amounts raised for good causes broke through the US$1.5m threshold and keeps on rising.
