2019 PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards now open for nominations

Key dates set for fifth annual edition celebrating massive potential of the country’s building sector

The timeline has been set for the 2019 PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards, presented by Kohler, as the fifth annual edition of the prestigious competition opens the nominations period to the general public following a press launch held at the Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi.
