Asian Personality Award 2018 to be announced at Vinexpo HK

The winner of the Asian Personality Award 2018 will be announced at Vinexpo Hong Kong at lunchtime on Wednesday 30 May, and members of the trade are invited to attend.

A ceremony will be staged at the wine fair to celebrate the 2018 recipient, where attendees will be served drinks and canapés, along with fizz from Champagne Barons de Rothschild.

The first winner of the award in 2012 was Grace Vineyards’ CEO, Judy Chan, followed by Vincent Cheung, grand master of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Asia, in 2014, and the creators of the hugely popular manga series The Drops of God, Yuko and Shin Kibayashi, in 2016.

The 2018 recipient is another hugely influential figure in the world of wine, but to find out who it is, you will have to attend the ceremony at Vinexpo Hong Kong.
