Who should we trust in buying properties? The Philippines Property Awards is back on its 4th year. Known as one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting property markets, the Philippines’ biggest real estate awards held its official press conference last October 29 at the Namayan Room of the Fairmont Makati, the official hotel venue sponsor of the Philippines Property Awards 2016. The Awards will begin accepting nominations from developers and the general public on 29 November 2015. Property firms are free to enter as long as a third party nominates them.
Ayala Land claimed the Best Developer (South East Asia) title in 2014 during the South East Asia Property Awards grand finals held in Singapore. Next year, one outstanding developer from the Philippines could win that honour. There will be 26 trophies to be given away at the awards ceremony next year. Categories are grouped into three main sections, namely Developer, Development and Design, covering the condominium, housing, hotel, office, retail, green and villa segments. The press conference attended by Paul Ashburn (Co-Managing Partner of BDO International), Terry Blackburn, (CEO of Ensign Media), Marie Grace Ofamen, (Consultant of Hansgrohe), Eric Mangosing (Judges Panel Representative), and Michael McCullough (Managing Director, KMC MAG Group) also saw the launch of the second Property Report Congress. After the resounding success of the first Congress, Ensign Media plans to bring together the country’s industry leaders and experts for a Philippine-focused all-day seminar and network event.
Winners will be revealed at the glittering black-tie awards gala on Thursday, 7 April at the Fairmont Makati. One additional award – chosen by the editors of Property Report – will be presented to the Real Estate Personality of Year whose influence and achievements resonates across the Philippine archipelago. Past recipients of this prestigious honour are property veteran Antonino Aquino, President and CEO of Ayala Land; highly respected tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan, Chairman and Founder of Megaworld Corporation; and green advocate Ramon Fernando D. Rufino, Executive Vice-President of The Net Group, and incumbent chairman of the Philippine Green Building Council.
