HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Building on the success of its debut event in 2015, Viet Nam's most recognised and respected real estate awards will feature the leading developers and developments from around the country.

Supported by platinum sponsor Hansgrohe, a leading global manufacturer of innovative and designer bathroom products, the Viet Nam Property Awards began welcoming nominations from developers and the general public starting from November 23.

The final shortlist will be unveiled on May 9, and the winners rewarded at a glittering black-tie awards gala at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon on Friday on June 10.

All eyes are on Viet Nam's recovering real estate sector, which has languished for several years.

After the implementation of the Law on Residential Housing in July, analysts said they were optimistic about the continued growth of the industry. They cited the country's strong economy and the rise of a younger middle-class with higher spending power.

"The Viet Nam Property Awards showcases the very best in the country's real estate sector, whether a project is from an established developer or an up-and-coming firm, and we're delighted to continue what we started here," said Terry Blackburn, CEO of Ensign Media, publisher of Property Report, Asia's industry-leading luxury real estate, architecture and design publication.

A total of 30 trophies will be handed out in 2016. Categories cover a range of segments, including condominium, housing/villa, hotel, office, and retail.

Viet Nam Property Awards entry is free, and participants will have until April 1 to submit entries in the Developer, Development and Design categories.

All successful entries will be supervised by BDO, one of the world's largest accounting and auditing firms, and the trusted awards supervisor of the Asia Property Awards, which, in its 11th year, is widely recognised for its fairness and transparency.

Outside of the award categories, the editors of Property Report will be presenting one additional award to the Real Estate Personality of Year, whose influence and achievements resonate across Viet Nam. – VNS
