“They have encouraged developers, large-scale investors, and designers to become better versions of themselves, creating the next generation of real estate developments and helping industry stakeholders make higher-quality decisions.”

Since we introduced our virtual gala format last year, we’ve expanded our reach to new markets added to the series. We're delighted to see an increase in quality entries from Australia.

“There’s no doubt that the awards have become the most respected and sought-after real estate awards series in the Asia Pacific region. When we switched to a virtual platform our digital and hybrid gala presentations were viewed by over half a million people across key regional markets.

“This year alone we granted over 360 awards in our country series and through this recognition of developers’ varied achievements, we hope to motivate leading industry players as they continue to break the boundaries of development and design and stay resolute in their mission to uphold the Gold Standard in real estate, no matter the challenges.”
