A record number of nominations have been received for the 2011 Thailand Property Awards – widely regarding as the ‘Oscars’ of the Kingdom’s real estate industry.
More than 1,350 developers, developments, property agents, architects and real estate companies were nominated by the public and their peers when nominations closed earlier this month.
Last year’s winner of the prestigious ‘Best Developer Thailand’ award, Golden Land, is up against 36 other developers who have been nominated in the flagship category. The ‘Best Affordable Condo Development (Bangkok)’ category, a new addition this year, will also see fierce competition with more than 45 nominated projects now eligible to enter.
Terry Blackburn, Chief Executive Officer of organisers Ensign Media, said: “The record level of nominations for this year’s Thailand Property Awards is a sign of the strength of the industry. Previous winners have gained significant benefits from winning a Thailand Property Award and I would strongly urge all those who have been nominated to now submit their entry.”
Entries are now being sought from nominated companies. Each entry will be subject to a rigorous evaluation process, with just one overall winner selected in each category. A panel of independent industry experts, including lawyers, surveyors, agents and engineers, will be considering each entry in detail and taking into account a range of qualitative factors. Judges will them embark on site visits to short-listed developments.
The Thailand Property Awards, first held in 2005, are widely recognised as a benchmark for excellence in the Kingdom’s residential real estate industry. The Gala Awards will take place at the Grand Hyatt Erawan in Bangkok on November 5, and is expected to attract more than 600 attendees.
