37 Malaysian companies to be honoured at 2013 Asia Pacific International Property Awards

Regional awards presentation to be held in Kuala Lumpur, like last year

Property Summit 2011 — International Property Media Ltd

Previously known as the Bloomberg International Property Awards, this annual recognition of the best developments, architecture, interior design and real estate agency work by UK company International Property Media Ltd has this year teamed up with Virgin Atlantic and Samsung to present International Property Awards and International Hotel Awards 2013-2014. The competition is now in its 19th year.

Like last year, the awards dinner for the Asian Pacific regional round will be held in Kuala Lumpur on May 10. This year, it will be held in Shangri-La hotel, rather than last year’s JW Marriott.

The 2013 Asia Pacific Property & Hospitality Show will bring in winners from around the region, and also those who would like to network with them. Besides the awards ceremonies, there will also be a schedule of networking events, seminars and exhibitions which begins from May 9.

This year’s awards has seen 639 submissions in 43 categories (seven estate agency categories, 18 development, eight Interior Design and 10 Architecture) from 23 countries in the region, says a spokesperson for the awards. Countries participating in the competition for the first time are Mongolia, Bangladesh, and Tajikistan.

The organisers expect between 600 to 800 attendees at this year’s event, compared to last year’s 620.

Billing itself as one of the “most prestigious property awards shows”, it’s a strictly black tie event, and last year’s do featured several statuesque blonde models as ushers bringing a touch of glamour to the event.

Winners from the Asia Pacific awards, will come together with winners from the Arabia, Europe, Africa and the Americas regions to compete at the International Property Awards, usually held in London.
