In what is emerging to be not only a leading Asian hotel school but a world class one, Hong Kong's Polytechnic University is working with the Hotel ICON which is set to launch this year. Located in Tsim Sha Tsui East the property will cooperate with PolyU's prestigious School of Hotel and Tourism Management. Industry veteran Richard Hatter who most recently had a corporate role in development with Shangri-La has been appointed General Manager.
