Kingdom Property to sponsor Thailand Property Awards


Fast emerging Thailand real estate developer Kingdom Property has taken another step to announcing its arrival on the property scene by signing an agreement to co-sponsor the prestigious Thailand Property Awards 2012.

Chief Executive Officer Nigel Cornick said that while Kingdom did not have any projects to enter this year as developers, the company was proud to be supporting such an important industry event.  Now in its seventh year, the glittering ceremony will take place on 13 October at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok and will present 37 awards.

Mr. Cornick himself is no stranger to the Thailand Property Awards having collected a record 10 awards at the event in the past including winning the Best Developer Award for an unprecedented two consecutive years when he was CEO at Raimon Land – a company he took from severe post Asian financial crisis struggles a decade ago to the become the country’s most renown luxury condominium developer.

“I’m delighted to once again support the Thailand Property Awards,” he said.  “It is an annual industry event with which I have had a long association and while we are not eligible to enter this year, we are pleased to assist with the recognition it gives to high-quality work across the industry from developers, agents, architects and designers.

“It is a true gathering point for the industry each year and it offers an excellent platform for us to announce our arrival to friends in the industry with whom we look forward to working alongside in the years to come.  We will also look forward to entering our exciting new Southpoint project next year.”

Ensign Media and Thailand Property Awards Chief Executive Officer Terry Blackburn added: “We are very happy to welcome Kingdom Property as a co-sponsor for the Thailand Property Awards 2012.  The confidence of leading industry figures like Nigel Cornick in the awards since its inception seven years ago is a clear signal that we continue to succeed in our aim to deliver fair, credible and stringently judged awards for the Thailand real estate industry.

“I consider Kingdom’s sponsorship in a year that they are not able to participate to be a great vote of confidence in the reach and significance of the Thailand Property Awards and I look forward to their active participation in future years and their continued contribution to the country’s property sector that will ensure it remains one of the most dynamic and successful in Asia.”

Kingdom Property recently secured funding from Krung Thai Bank, Thailand’s largest financial institution, to build Southpoint Pattaya, a 650-unit condominium valued at THB2 billion in the upscale Prathumnak area in Pattaya.  It is the developer’s first project on the Eastern Seaboard and will be launched later this year.

“I have always been a great advocate of quality in all the developments I have been involved in – and Southpoint is no different,” said the Kingdom CEO Nigel Cornick.  “I developed Northshore and Northpoint with Raimon Land in Pattaya and while the market has changed Southpoint will still be marked by high standards in engineering, design and architecture, utilizing only high quality materials – and of course it will be delivered on time to all original specifications.

“This is one reason we are so comfortable in not only supporting such an excellent event, but the industry as a whole as it is important to continue to set new standards and not stand still – and Thailand Property Awards celebrates those principles that we believe in,” he added.
