For the second year in a row the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (TSCC) is an Associate Partner of Thailand Property Awards, and its representatives attended the black-tie awards gala held at Plaza Athenee Bangkok (a Royal Meridien hotel) on Wednesday evening, 16 September 2015 as the awards celebrated 10 years.
As the next Thai Property Guide for 2015/2016, operated by TSCC, is in the works it was timely for the Chamber to continue its engagement with Thailand’s real estate sector by boosting these Awards. TSCC displayed its activities at a dedicated booth and was represented by Executive Director Jiraya Chanchon and TSCC President Jan Eriksson during the awards. Mr Eriksson had the honour of presenting the Awards for ‘Best Retail Architectural Design’ to the winner Central Plaza WESTGATE by Central Pattana PLC. (also the winner of Best Retail Development). The perhaps most prestigious prize ‘Best Developer’ saw SC Asset Corporation PLC as winner.
Established and up-and-coming developers in Bangkok, Phuket, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai, Khao Yai, Samui and Eastern Seaboard vied for a total of 29 categories over three sections: Developer, Development and Design.
The upcoming Thai Property Guide edition helps foreign investors navigate every aspect of property investment in Thailand and come to well-informed decisions. It includes presentations of developments from sponsors as well as residential destination updates and other relevant updates and ‘Living in Thailand’ advice.
“The high quality of developments in Thailand has allowed the industry to transform itself from being an emerging market in 2006, to becoming one of the stars of Southeast Asian real estate today, despite certain economic or socio-political challenges,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO of organising Ensign Media.
“It is so fitting that our last event before the much-awaited Asia Property Awards grand finals in Singapore is our 10-year celebration in Thailand, where it all began,” said Blackburn. “We believe in what Thailand real estate has to offer and the Thailand Property Awards is the best possible venue for it to be showcased to the rest of the world via our independently audited, free-to-enter awards system.
