What do you get when you have the support of the world’s premier makers of high-quality kitchen and bath products; furniture fittings and architectural hardware; paint solutions; and construction materials, among others?
The result is a night of success at the 7th Annual PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards, celebrated 26 November as an exclusive hybrid gala event at the Park Hyatt Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. The festive occasion, which also marked the premiere of the awards’ virtual broadcast presentation, was presented by Kohler and supported by Häfele, Dulux Professional by AkzoNobel Paints Vietnam, and Saint-Gobain Vietnam.
Now marking five years as platinum sponsor of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, Kohler congratulated the developers and real estate professionals receiving honours in Vietnam for 2021.
“The awards give recognition to excellent projects throughout the property industry in Asia,” said Leo Leong, general manager for Kohler Kitchen & Bath South & Northeast Asia, adding that the programme is a good platform for showcasing great projects in Asia Pacific.
Kohler takes pride in the awardees’ achievements as well as its own. At a time when hygiene, sanitation and wellbeing are top of mind for property seekers, the celebrated maker of designer kitchen and bath products continues to innovate on its product range.
Recently, it introduced the Vietnam market to smart, contactless products like the Eir intelligent toilet, Modern Life touchless toilet, and Malleco touchless faucet.
Such bold innovations stem from Kohler’s “strong heritage and mission of contributing to a higher level of gracious living,” according to Leong.
Kohler was founded 148 years ago today in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
As gold sponsor of this year’s awards in Vietnam, Häfele was also instrumental in making the country’s biggest night for real estate possible. The global provider of high-end smart home solutions cherishes its long-standing partnerships with developers, architects and contractors in Vietnam, and those to come.
“Therefore, it is an honour for us to be part of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards [and] sharing our latest Complete Home Solutions and Products to the industry experts at the event this year,” said Dominik Fruth, the general director of Häfele Vietnam.
With almost 100 years of game-changing innovations—the company was founded in Germany in 1923—Häfele expanded in 1998 to Vietnam, joining over 150 nations that have been touched by the company’s products.
Since then, the company has introduced Vietnamese developers and designers to sophisticated furniture fittings, architectural hardware, home appliances, sanitary wares, and electronic access control solutions, all made to the highest German standards.
Adding colour to the awards this year is silver sponsor Dulux Professional by AkzoNobel Paints Vietnam. One of the world’s most recognisable names in paint and coating products, the company renewed its confidence in the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards as the most trusted, prestigious programme of its kind in Asia Pacific.
“Since the first time we joined as silver sponsor in 2019, we have been overjoyed to contribute to raising standards across the real estate industry for the benefit of homebuyers and investors,” said Pamela Phua, general director of AkzoNobel Vietnam.
Dulux Professional by AkzoNobel Paints Vietnam builds on 200 years of heritage as a powerhouse in protecting and beautifying surfaces worldwide.
“As the leading provider of paints and coatings in the industry, AkzoNobel and Dulux Professional have been conscientiously working to bring more value to homebuyers, investors, and developers through our sponsorship and high-quality products and premium consulting services,” Phua said.
The 2021 awards also earned the generous support of silver sponsor Saint-Gobain Vietnam. The company is known for supplying builders with a comprehensive range of construction materials, giving rise to some of Vietnam’s most marvelous built spaces.
“Partnering with the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards provides Saint-Gobain Vietnam with an excellent opportunity to connect with the best developers, architects and designers in Vietnam, as well as Asia Pacific,” said Nguyễn Trường Hải, chief executive officer of Saint-Gobain Vietnam.
“Together, we will build a growing Vietnam and will continue fostering stronger collaborations and partnerships with the developer, designer, and architect community to achieve even greater things on a higher level.”
Part of the global conglomerate Saint-Gobain Group that dates to 17th-century France, the company has truly come a long way from its origins providing glass for the palace of Versailles. Taking its business into the future, Saint-Gobain Vietnam has been responding to the global call for climate action by expanding its green and sustainable offerings.
The hybrid gala celebration in Ho Chi Minh City treated guests to a live screening of the programme’s virtual red carpet and awards presentation, which premiered worldwide on AsiaPropertyAwards.com/tv-podcast and multiple digital platforms.
Highlights of the celebration will be broadcast on the History Channel. The famed network serves as the official cable TV partner of the awards.
The awards are organised annually by Asia’s leading property technology company PropertyGuru Group. Batdongsan.com.vn, Vietnam’s leading property website, served as the awards’ official portal partner.
In addition to the aforementioned sponsors and partners, the 7th Annual PropertyGuru Vietnam Property Awards were supported by local partner Oriental Media Vietnam; official magazine PropertyGuru Property Report; official PR partner T&H Communications; media partners Deluxe Magazine, Oi Vietnam, Vietnam Heritage, and Vietnam News; official charity partner Right To Play; official ESG partner Baan Dek Foundation; supporting association Asia MarTech Society; and official supervisor HLB.
