PHNOM PENH, Cambodia –– 24 March 2020
The organisers of the PropertyGuru Cambodia Property Awards have announced today that the black-tie gala dinner and award ceremony, originally set for 5 June 2020, will be held on a later date, given prevailing concerns over the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
For precautionary purposes, the 5th Annual Property Cambodia Property Awards will be now held on Friday, 10 July 2020. The exclusive gala event is still due to take place at the Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra, which will be implementing preventative health measures in the interest of guests, organisers and staff.

- 18-29 May 2020 – Site Inspections
- 1 June 2020 – Final Judging
- 10 July 2020 – Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
