Organisers to remain cautious of developments across each market and abide by safety protocols set by local administrations and health officials
PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, the region’s leading real estate awards programme, presents key dates and event formats for the 2021 Awards season.
In the past year, the programme has maintained the prestige of hosting successful awards celebrations albeit the global outbreak. By taking the pandemic situation and safety protocols into account, the organisers have set up a series of virtual, physical, and/or hybrid events specially curated for each country.
Now, as the vaccinations have begun to roll out and the number of infected patients has started to peter out across the region, the 2021 gala series moves forward with the formats adapted for each country.
PropertyGuru’s 2021 Awards season will commence with a virtual ceremony in Indonesia on 14 October, followed by Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Chinese territories (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau).
The highly awaited 16th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final Virtual Gala on 9 December will begin by presenting the final country awards to Sri Lanka, India, Greater Niseko, and Australia before crowning the best developers, developments, and designs in Asia Pacific.
The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards 2021 key dates are as follows:
Health and safety protocols mandated by each country will remain in place leading up to and on the day of the physical galas. Meanwhile, Jack Prinya and Kelly Jones-Purves will return as this year’s emcees for the virtual red carpet and gala presentations.
Jules Kay, Managing Director of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, said: “The success of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards when we launched the region’s first online gala series last year, highlighted the resilience of the Asia Pacific real estate market, and the strength and determination of the companies and professionals behind the region’s many new developments.
This year, as we navigate the ongoing challenges brought about by the global pandemic, our regional gala events will continue to prioritise the health of judges, partners, guests, and production teams by integrating the same physical precautions and virtual benefits we applied in 2020 to keep everyone safe as we celebrate and share the property industry’s biggest success stories.”
