HCM CITY — The sixth edition of the PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards was launched in HCM City on February 27.
Organised by PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property group, and sponsored by global brand Kohler, there will be nearly 50 awards this year to honour the country’s best developer, best boutique developer, best sustainable developer, best breakthrough developer, best lifestyle developer, best commercial developer, best hospitality developer, best industrial developer, and best mixed-use developer.
There will be development awards for outstanding new properties in HCM City, Hà Nôi, Đà Nẵng, Phú Quốc, Khánh Hòa, and Halong Bay, as well as best green development and various design and some special awards for corporate social responsibility and for building communities.
The public is encouraged to submit nominations for the awards from now through June 5 online at https://www.asiapropertyawards.com/nominations/.
Nominations are expected to cover breakthroughs in development and design as well as achievements in niche property segments for which one of Southeast Asia’s most active real estate markets is increasingly known.
The awards will be judged by an independent panel of experts chaired once again by Thiện Dương, managing director of Transform Architecture.
A gala awards event will take place on August 7 at GEM Center in HCM City’s District 1 with more than 600 guests, including top executives from development, property consultancy, construction, marketing, proptech, law, finance, architecture, and design firms.
The ‘Best of the Best’ winners from Việt Nam will compete in the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final.
The PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards began in 2015 with 400 developers and real estate professionals from all over Việt Nam, with 21 awards presented to the nation’s top developers and developments.
It has become one of the most-awaited industry events on the country’s real estate calendar.
Last year there were 62 trophies and 39 citations to outstanding companies and properties. They included five new developer awards that recognised the country’s niche property segments.
Gamuda Land Vietnam chairman Cheong Ho Kuan was honoured as the 2019 Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year.
At the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final last year in Thailand, Việt Nam won four regional trophies, including Best Office Development (Asia) for CapitaLand Vietnam’s grade-A commercial project Capital Place. — VNS
