IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE THE BEST OF MALAYSIA 2010
Kuala Lumpur, August 2010: Say hello to The Best of Malaysia (BoM) 2010, the awards where the people’s vote on all things travel and leisure are counted, where the vox populi decides the Best of Malaysia!
The awards take an overview of the Malaysian hospitality industry-hotels, beach resorts, attractions etc-and provide a 100 per cent people driven award system, the only one of its kind in the country.
The 2010 BoMs are under way and this year we've made it easier than ever to lodge your votes with easy drop down menus. We have 16 categories split into categories (listed below). Voting begins at the start of August with ‘Open Fields’ & drop down menus for each category so as to not influence the polls. All votes will be checked and entries will be vetted to ensure no unfair play. Then, on September 6 2010, polls close and votes will be counted to form a Shortlist. This Shortlist will comprise the five (or six or seven, depending if the vote is especially close) top outlets in each of the categories. Polls will then re-open with ONLY the shortlisted outlets on a ‘drop-down’ menu to decide who will be the eventual winner.
Votes from Stage One will be carried into Stage Two and added to additional votes cast. The outlet with the most overall votes will be declared the winner at a special Awards Ceremony in November just prior to the release of the December ‘Best of Malaysia Special’ Issue of the Expatriate Lifestyle magazine.
Every vote counts in the Best of Malaysia 2010 Awards – the ONLY awards in Malaysia which are free and fair and voted for by YOU, who visit and live in Malaysia. You can’t buy these awards and the choices are purely down to the people. You can’t get more democratic than that.
Vote now on http://www.expatriatelifestyle.com/vote/Best-of-Malaysia and keep your eye on the website and in Expatriate Lifestyle magazine for more updates.
