BEIJING, Dec. 03, 2012 /CNW/ - China's tourism industry has now entered a new era featuring industrial development and popularisation. Furthermore, tourist brands are becoming increasingly important in China. The quality and quantity of star-level hotels are linked directly to the development of China's tourism, its cities and commercial real estate. Moreover, the high demands from business travellers for business trips, enterprise meetings, out-house training and incentive travel are all factors driving the development of the hotel industry in China.
