Bangkok, Thailand, September 29, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Organisers of the 2007 awards, Ensign Media Co. Ltd, and publishers of Property Report Thailand magazine, undertook a huge campaign contacting over 700 property professionals in Thailand seeking nominations for the 2007 awards. After email blasts, telephone and fax follow-ups, the total number of nominations exceeded all expectations.
Duncan Worthington, Managing Director of Ensign Media said; “We undertook a mammoth task to include as many of the industry as possible in the awards this year. Nomination forms were sent to people and businesses from different sectors in the property industry, including developers, agents, architects, interior designers and more. And each form was tailored to the recipient so developers would not be nominating developers and agents not nominating agents, and so on.”
“We are delighted with the response from the industry. All the hard work was worth it. But this is the end of only the first stage. Now we move into the second stage of the awards procedure where we request information from those companies nominated,” added Worthington.
The first stage of the award procedure closed on 31st August with over 260 companies nominated for awards in 13 categories. The second stage, which will start early October, will see the award organisers contact all the nominated companies and request them to submit information online. The deadline for submission of these materials is 20th October, after which judges will be given approximately three weeks to score all entrants.
While the awards procedure is gathering speed, the organisers are proud to announce a new partner for the 2007 Thailand Property Awards. McEvily & Collins law firm joins as a Platinum Sponsor. Commenting on their recent partnership, Michael B. Murray, Attorney at Law (USA), said; “McEvily & Collins is honoured to sponsor the Thailand Property Awards for 2007. We understand the importance of recognizing the exceptional achievements of Thailand’s property industry professionals and therefore take great pride in supporting this outstanding event. An event which is sure to set the tone for another fantastic year of creativity and professionalism.”
“We're very proud to welcome such an established legal company in Thailand to partner us this year. We feel McEvily & Collins commitment to the Thailand Property Awards reflects the growth and professionalism of Thailand's real estate market,” Worthington added.
The Thailand Property Awards are now in their second year and this year introduce a new nomination and judging process which is industry-led, and a new online system has been deployed to allow more industry professionals to be involved, while also making the judging process more efficient. There are a total of 14 awards, including: Best Developer, Best Boutique Developer, Best International Agent, Best Thailand Agent, Best Urban Villa Development, Best Resort Villa Development, Best Urban Condo Development, Best Resort Condo Development, Green Development Award, Best Architect, Best Interior Designer, Best Agent Website, Best Development Website, and Real Estate Personality of the Year.
