BANGKOK, Thailand –– 30 April 2020
PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, the region’s leading real estate awards programme, is moving forward this year with new dates for its series of exclusive gala events across the region.

Precautionary health protocols will be followed stringently leading up to and on the day of the gala events.
Existing entries will also be judged as normal based on the established criteria whilst entry submission cut-offs will be extended as necessary for each market. Online entry submissions remain open via http://www.awardentrysystem.com/register/
The new gala dates will then subsequently extend the logo rights of the eventual Winners and Highly Commended awardees.
Jules Kay, Managing Director of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, said: “Based on the success we are seeing in some countries across Asia which are now flattening the coronavirus curve, we are restarting the entry and judging process for the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards while continuing to reassess the impact of COVID-19 in all our 16 participating markets.
“With the safety of our guests remaining a number one priority, we want to ensure that we hold our events at a time when our award nominees and other stakeholders feel comfortable and ready to fully celebrate their achievements. Each of the country awards programmes in the regional series will resume based on the latest facts and data from local authorities, healthcare experts and international reports. Guided by this information, we plan to implement the same, if not an even higher level of exclusive, enjoyable experience at all our property awards events around the region this year.”
