UOL scoops Best Developer South East Asia award

By Andrew Batt: UOL Group collected the 'Best Developer' award at the second annual South East Asia Property Awards which took place on Wednesday night.

More than 370 guests from around the region – including from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia and Indonesia – were in attendance to congratulate the winners and highly commended companies in the 35 award categories.

Terry Blackburn, the CEO of organisers Ensign Media, said: "We have seen some real world beating developments awarded here this evening that really represent the full gamut of what South East Asia real estate has to offer."

More than 1,400 nominations were received for the awards, and from those, over 300 entries, with the most hotly contested categories being the Best Condominium awards for both Singapore and Malaysia.

New categories this year included the expansion of the design awards to recognise Hotel Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Best Consultancy categories were also introduced to cover all major markets.

"It was also great to see the consultancies getting recognition this year. These companies provide invaluable data and really help drive sales across the region and internationally and the winners tonight really represent the best in the business," added Blackburn.Image: Mr Liam Wee Sin, President (Property), UOL Group Ltd Winners of the South East Asia Property Awards 2012DEVELOPER AWARDS
