41 companies are vying for top honours at 12th annual PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2017
Thailand’s biggest and longest-running awards gala for real estate excellence will welcome more than 600 key senior industry figures from around the country
BANGKOK, Thailand – 11 August 2017
The 12th annual edition of PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards, supported by Thailand’s leading property site DDproperty.com, have announced the final shortlist of nominees, comprising 41 companies with outstanding developments in Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, Hua Hin, Khao Yai and the Eastern Seaboard.
Leading the nominations is boutique developer The Riviera Group, which collected seven nods for various condo and resort projects on Thailand’s progressive Eastern Seaboard.
The Riviera Group dominates the condo and design categories for the Eastern Seaboard, a rising economic and industrial zone that is at the centre of many infrastructure developments, following the announcement of the Kingdom’s Eastern Economic Corridor Development in mid-2016.
Other big nominees include: Sansara Development Ltd and Sansiri, earning six places on the shortlist each; Phuket mixed-use developer MontAzure, collecting five nominations; and in a four-way tie with four nods each are Proud Residences, FYNN Development, D'Well Grand Asset Co, and Sena Development.
A total of 39 categories, including special awards in corporate social responsibility (CSR), sustainable development, green development, and universal design, comprise this year’s awards programme, which celebrates its twelfth annual edition.
Kamolpat Swaengkit, Thailand country manager, DDproperty.com, a subsidiary of the PropertyGuru Group, said: “We are proud to announce the final shortlist of nominees who will be recognised at the 12th PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards. We’re optimistic about the future of the Thai property market especially with the knowledge that consumers will benefit from these exemplary developments.
Winning at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards is highly regarded as the ultimate benchmark of success, as all entries are fairly and ethically judged following a strict set of criteria set by an independent panel of judges. With BDO Thailand acting as official supervisor, the judges visited the nominated developments and deliberated on their quality and standard of construction.
“Urbanisation will continue in Thailand and quality developments will set our prime investment destinations apart from their regional counterparts,” added Kamolpat.
The Thailand judging panel is once again headed by Suphin Mechuchep, managing director of JLL Thailand. “This is a great opportunity to share to the world what are being developed in those locations and to celebrate the key factors that drive the growth of the real estate industry in Thailand. The Thailand Property Awards have showcased high quality developments and have well demonstrated an increased recognition and respect gained from the country’s real estate industry.”
Shortlisted finalists will be recognised either as Winner or Highly Commended during the gala dinner that will host around 600 key senior figures from the real estate sector and related industries in Thailand and beyond, making the event the biggest and longest-running annual real estate awards gala in the country.
The exclusive, black-tie awards gala evening takes places on Friday, 15 September 2017, at the Plaza Athenee Bangkok (a Royal Meridien hotel), the same venue where the PropertyGuru Thailand Real Estate Summit – a gathering of more than 100 domestic and international experts in the property sector – will be held a day before.
As always, the awards gala dinner will begin with an hour of cocktail reception, followed by the opening remarks, a four-course dinner, and the awards ceremony proper. Limited early bird tickets are offered until 18 August.
