Europe’s finest developers, architects, interior designers and real estate agents gathered at The Park Lane Hotel in Mayfair, London on Friday (September 23rd) for the announcement of the winners of the hotly contested European Property Awards.
Earlier this year, the results of the Asia Pacific Property Awards were revealed in Shanghai. This gave leading property professionals from across China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries in the region cause for major celebration.
Both of these individual programs form important elements of the International Property Awards in association with Bloomberg Television and Google. Established 17 years ago, they are the world’s most prestigious property competition and cover residential as well as commercial categories. Judging is carried out through a meticulous process involving a panel of over 80 experts and covering every aspect of the property business. The judges are not only looking for the most impressive and innovative projects, they are also examining the sustainability and eco-friendliness of every property and development that comes under their scrutiny.
It’s going to be interesting to see how well Europe competes internationally as the next stage is for the top-scoring winners from each category of the European Property Awards to literally take on the world by competing against other high scoring companies from Asia Pacific, Africa, the Americas and Arabia. The ultimate World’s Best in each category will be unveiled when the final results are revealed at London’s Savoy Hotel on December 12th.
President of the International Property Awards, Stuart Shield, says, “Every year we see entries from new countries keen to grab the limelight and, as this competition has proved over the years, innovation, flair, imagination and originality know no bounds. This is what makes the results of the competition so exciting.”
