The first-ever virtual gala is the most sought-after and respected ceremony, honouring the best projects, designs, and innovations within Myanmar’s real estate industry to a global audience
In spite of the challenges rooted from the pandemic and lockdowns, Myanmar’s real estate serves as a beacon of hope, as the nation’s best developers continue to build a better future and propel the community to recover through their resilience, optimism, and strength.
On November 26th, the PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property hosted their first-ever virtual gala to commemorate achievements of the real estate sector, ensuring people’s health and safety. The broadcast also invited the general public to attend for the first time, which allowed them to cheer for the developers, developments, and designs they love most.
The virtual gala engaged more than 23,600 viewers from all over the world. As the programme is integrated with a live chat feature, nominees, investors, and consumers were able to easily connect and communicate.
This year’s celebration awarded 25 trophies to 12 of the nation’s exceptional development companies. Capital Development Ltd. triumphed the night with three Developer awards, that is to say, Best Developer, Best Commercial Developer, and Best Mixed Use Developer.
The PropertyGuru Myanmar Property Awards in partnership with Shwe Property gave light to another prestigious trophy. Chosen solely by the editors of PropertyGuru Property Report Magazine, Daw Win Win Tint, Group CEO of City Holdings Limited, was presented with this year’s Myanmar Real Estate Personality of the Year award, making her the first female recipient of this accolade. This is an incredible milestone not only for the company, but for Myanmar’s real estate sector and the category itself.
The editors said, “In the span of our awards programme, she is the first woman in Myanmar to have ever received this prestigious award. Through this distinction, PropertyGuru commends Daw Win Win’s exemplary leadership at City Holdings, having expanded her company from a modest family-run shop into the top economic enterprise in the country, in terms of corporate governance, transparency and sustainability.”
The event wouldn’t be complete without Jack Prinya Ruenprapan and Chanita Craythome, the masters of the night that kept the audience enraptured throughout the whole virtual gala.
