Shortlisted for success

After another intense nomination, entry and judging process, the full shortlist of winners for the eighth annual Thailand Property Awards was announced recently at the Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Center, Central World. Absolute World Group has been shortlisted in two categories, Best Boutique Developer and Best Shared Ownership Development for its Twin Sands Resort and Spa. “As is the case every year, the judges decisions were based on strict and extensive criteria,” said Paul Ashburn, senior partner at BDO Advisory, which oversees the entry and judging process.  “For the development categories, local teams visited shortlisted developments to undertake site inspections before the central judging panel submitted their final decisions.” “The high standard of projects on the shortlist of winners, combined with the solid reputation of the companies represented this year adds up to an impressive display of real estate achievements,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO, Ensign Media, the organisers of the awards. Presentation of the awards will take place at The Thailand Property Awards 2013 Gala Dinner, which will be held at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld on September 19.
