McArthurGlen designer outlets wins top travel industry award in china for second year running

McArthurGlen has received the 'Best Overseas Shopping Centre of the Year' Award from the leading travel trade publication Travel Weekly China.

The award comes at a time when McArthurGlen has seen tourism sales grow by 400% in the last five years. With a rise of 75% in Chinese tourist sales in 2015 compared with the same period in 2014, China is the largest source of international visitors for McArthurGlen.

Anthony Rippingale, McArthurGlen's Head of Tourism, said: "We are thrilled to win this prestigious award in China for two consecutive years. The award is a testimony to the hard work of our staff in Europe, Canada and China, who work to ensure we offer the Chinese traveller to Europe an exciting and relevant shopping experience.  At McArthurGlen we focus on ensuring we have the best-loved luxury and premium brands at great prices in high-quality shopping environments, near key city destinations. Our teams work closely with the Chinese travel industry to ensure that a trip to one of our centres is on every fashion-lover's itinerary before they leave home".

McArthurGlen was nominated for the industry-leading awards by a distinguished panel of travel industry experts. The final decision was reached following a vote by the readers of Travel Weekly China.

Over 250 travel industry insiders and brand leaders attended the awards ceremony held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Shanghai.
