HCM CITY — PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property group, and sponsor Kohler have announced that the third annual Vietnam Property Awards will be held in June next year.
Speaking at a press conference in HCM City, Terry Blackburn, Asia Property Awards founder and managing director, said the awards would celebrate best property developers, projects and designs in the country’s top-tier markets of HCM City and Hà Nội, as well as exciting resort destinations of Phú Quốc, Đà Nẵng and Nha Trang.
The awards are given in three categories -- developer, development and design -- covering the residential, commercial and resort segments, with the eligibility period covering current developments with expected completion by December 2019 or earlier.
There will also be awards for Best Green Development, Special Recognition in CSR and Special Recognition in Sustainable Development.
Nominations are currently being accepted, and submissions can be made by developers, consumers and the general public before the deadline of March 24 next year.
Organisers expect to get more than 100 nominations next year, up from 60 in 2016.
The official shortlist, comprising one winner and up to four highly commended companies or projects in each category, will be revealed by an independent jury in late April.
A black-tie gala dinner and awards ceremony will take place on June 2.
The ‘Best of the Best’ round winners from Việt Nam will compete in the regional grand finals at the South East Asia Property Awards held annually in Singapore, opening up their businesses to new audiences around the region.
BDO, one of the world’s largest accounting and auditing firms, continues to be the award’s official judging supervisor to ensure that the entire nomination and judging process is fair and transparent, Blackburn said.
The Vietnam Property Awards has become one of the most-awaited industry events in the country’s real estate calendar.
This year more than 450 guests and VIPs attended the gala dinner that saw Nam Long Investment Corporation crowned as the year’s Best Developer. — VNS
