Thai-Swedish Chamber meets Central Pattana Thailand Property Awards 2015

Tuesday, 13 October 2015 21:12 Written by 

Our President met on stage with the representative of Central Pattana as the Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce presented the price for ‘Best Retail Architectural Design’ to the winner Central Plaza WESTGATE. (also the winner for Best Retail Development).
Jan Eriksson handed over the price in the capacity of the Chamber being a Supporting Partner to Thailand Property Awards, at the black-tie awards gala held at Plaza Athenee Bangkok (a Royal Meridien hotel) on Wednesday evening, 16 September 2015.
In attendance during the dinner was also TSCC Executive Director Jiraya Chanchon, as the awards celebrated 10 years.
TSCC, itself involved in the property sector with its Thai Property Guide initiative, displayed its activities at a dedicated booth in the reception hall. As the next Thai Property Guide for 2015/2016, is in the works it was timely for the Chamber to continue its engagement with Thailand’s real estate sector by supporting these Awards.
During the very long, but pleasant night a large number of awards saw their winners, where the perhaps most prestigious prize, ‘Best Developer’, went o SC Asset Corporation PLC.
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.
Three-time nominee Absolute World Group emerged victorious, this time in the Best Boutique Developer category. Considered one of the current leaders of the vacation club ownership industry in Thailand, the company is also known and respected for building an impressive boutique collection of forward-thinking resorts with an environmentally conscious approach. The firm also bagged two Highly Commended honours for current developments on Phuket and Samui.
“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.

Acknowledging the efforts of Thai developers in the past ten years, central judges panel chairman Sunchai Nuengsit (managing director of BuilderSmart Public Company Limited) commented: “The developers have more experience and continually improve their projects. They understand the need of the customers and adapt themselves very well despite many obstacles such as instability caused by the political situation in Thailand.
“Winning at the Thailand Property Awards is an immense achievement in itself and should definitely benefit the developers and design firms who entered because the Awards is a widely respected and known platform for rewarding high benchmark of quality that is at par with international standards.”
