The 5th PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards, presented by Kohler and local partner Oriental Media, has announced an official shortlist of nominees who will be honored at the gala dinner and ceremony on August 23 in Ho Chi Minh City.

More than 20 developers from Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Cam Ranh, and leading investment locations made the cut following the rigorous nominations, judging, and site inspection stages conducted by an independent panel of experts. All stages were supervised by BDO Vietnam, part of BDO, one of the world’s largest networks of accounting and auditing firms.

Some of the country’s largest developers are returning to the competition with nominations at this year’s awards, including last year’s multiple winners Alpha King, CapitaLand Vietnam, Gamuda Land Vietnam, Kien A Corporation, SonKim Land Corporation, and TNR Holdings. New nominees this year include Gotec Land, GFS Group, Phuc Khang Corporation, and Maxland.

With 52 competition categories and special awards, including in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainable Development, the 5th PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards acknowledge the most active segments of the market as well as exemplary achievements in community-building and public facilities.

Gamuda Land Vietnam’s Chairman Cheong Ho Kuan has been chosen by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report magazine to receive the prestigious 2019 Vietnam Real Estate Personality of the Year award, to honor his leadership and benchmark-setting vision for Celadon City, the company’s acclaimed eco-friendly township project.

This holding of the PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards follows the hugely successful 2018 holding, which presented 43 awards to more than 25 companies and public-private entities, including CapitaLand Vietnam, Kien A Corporation, newcomer Alpha King, and SonKim Land Corporation, which garnered the Best Boutique Developer (Asia) title at the regional 2018 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final ceremony held in Thailand.

The local edition of the prestigious regional awards program was first held in Vietnam in 2015 and has been highly regarded as the “gold standard in real estate” and backed by the Vietnam National Real Estate Association (VNREA) as the supporting association. The biggest real estate organization in Vietnam, VNREA has endorsed the PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards since its inaugural holding in 2015.

Awards this year are open to more than a dozen property markets in the region. With gala dinners hosting up to 600 senior industry leaders to recognize excellence within each Asian market, each local award culminates in the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final, which will take place alongside the PropertyGuru Asia Real Estate Summit in Bangkok in November.
