Photo Gallery – HvO World Award 2019 in Milan, Italy
Needless to say, Milan as the venue for the HvO World Award 2019 is the heart and soul of culture and arts in Italy.
Around the area of the Four Seasons Hotel where the award ceremony took place, there are famous places like ‘Duomo di Milano’ known for its awesome Gothic façade and ‘Teatro alla Scala’ known as the top theater of Italian opera…
And ‘Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II’ known as an archetype of modern arcading, and many more historic monuments of Milan helped emphasize the distinctive Italian atmosphere.
The Four Seasons as the venue for HvO World Award 2019, too, was originally built in the 15th century for cloister. The gentle sunlight of an exquisite Italian summer afternoon brilliantly illuminates the beautiful patio that was built in authentic Spanish style.
After the award ceremony, the guests enjoyed a full-course Italian dinner prepared by ‘five-star’ hotel’s chefs, resulting in a most unique culinary experience.
To begin the formal program, the curtain was raised with the chairman of the HvO academy, Mr. Nick Hawkins’s opening speech on behalf of the commissioners and the organizers.
This year, a total of 7 products from 5 companies, including 1 newcomer were selected for the award.
The HvO Academy praised and gave trophies and certificates to each awardee for their achievements in innovation and performance as market leaders, including one who has the sole distinction of winning the award in four consecutive years.
At the end of the ceremony, Mr. Conway Downing, a committee member of the HvO Academy gave an accustomed toast in honor of the sentiment. Cheers!! and Kampai!!
And here comes the sumptuous dinner, much awaited for by everyone.
There was a committee member who’s clumsily trying his brand-new mobile application for language translation to communicate with a Japanese guest…
Indeed, it was a place for an international exchange with ‘state-of-the-art’ technology and science, taking place where the world’s greatest inventor, Leonard da Vinci abided for a while in the past!
