Building on the success of last year’s 10th anniversary event, which saw SC Asset Corporation PLC claim the biggest award for Best Developer, the Kingdom’s biggest and most respected industry awards programme will champion the leading industry players in Bangkok and Phuket, which continue to evolve alongside the secondary markets of Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Khao Yai, Samui and the Eastern Seaboard.

Phuket shone brightly in last year’s awards, with Andara Signature Resort and Villas by Andamandara Development Co., Ltd. claiming four trophies, including Best Housing Development (Thailand) and Best Villa Development for its Phuket project in Kamala, plus two design awards.

Three-time nominee Absolute World Group also emerged victorious last year in the Best Boutique Developer category. The firm also bagged two Highly Commended honours for developments on Phuket and Samui.

“The tourism sector is playing an increasingly important role in driving the country’s economic growth,” said Suphin Mechuchep, Managing Director of JLL Thailand and newly elected chairperson of the central panel of judges.

“A decent chunk of tourist spending goes to retailers in various retail formats from street-side retail strips to modern shopping centres,” she added. “Retail markets in key tourist destinations such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui, and Chiang Mai will benefit most from this trend.”

This economic boost, as well the recently reported strong year-end finish to 2015 following the implementation of the government-led boosting measures and incentives, will be discussed by the industry’s leading experts, developers and innovators at the high-level forum that takes place before the awards gala – the Property Report Congress Thailand.

The whole day conference on Thursday, September 22, from 9am to 3pm, will be held at the Plaza Athenee Bangkok, a Royal Meridien hotel, the official venue of the Thailand Property Awards.

Nominations for this year’s Thailand Property Awards closed on July 8, with the official shortlist due to be announced within the coming week.


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.

This year’s awards programme will be boosted by the support of title sponsor Hansgrohe, a leading global manufacturer of innovative and designer bathroom products, official media partner Property Report, as well as the large network of awards organiser PropertyGuru, Asia’s largest online property portal group.

“We’re excited to be working with PropertyGuru Group as the Asia Property Awards programme continues to expand in Asean in its second decade,” said Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the Asia Property Awards.

“In trying times like these, Thailand can always depend on exceptional projects that boost investor confidence and elevate market standards. We’re delighted to reward their hard work at the Thailand Property Awards,” he said.

Ms Suphin will be joined on the esteemed judging panel, which is presided by Dr Manop Bongsadadt, renowned professor of architecture at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University, by some of the best-known names in the industry. Aside from the central panel of judges, each region will have its own panel comprising local experts to ensure credibility of the awards.

A total of 31 trophies will be presented this year, with award categories covering the condominium, housing/villa, hotel, office, and retail segments. A special recognition for Thailand’s Real Estate Personality of Year, whose influence and achievements resonate across the Kingdom, will be named by the editors of Property Report prior to the gala night.

Last year’s winner of the prestigious title went to Minor International’s founder, CEO and chairman, WIlliam “Bill” E. Heinecke.
