The Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 celebrated 48 winners, hosted two events simultaneously and provided one unforgettable experience unlike anything the region has seen. More than 300 guests attended the Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 Charity Gala at Four Seasons Bangkok while another 100 joined the Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 Winners’ Dinner at The Reverie Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City.
With travel restrictions preventing everyone from being in a single location, an innovative approach was required for this year’s celebration. Winners from across the region were honored at both events while live broadcasts meant everyone was connected.
In Bangkok, the Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 Charity Gala was one of the very first events to be held at the brand new Four Seasons Bangkok. Guests were treated to a firework show over the Chao Phraya River as part of a full slate of activities. The night was extra special for Thai developer SC Asset who took home Developer of the Year 2020.
In Ho Chi Minh City, a poignant talkshow hosted by Nguyen Ngọc Dung, Chief Innovation Officer at VISTI Institute of Science, Technology and Innovation, discussed the impact innovation has had on the real estate sector. The celebration was capped off with the announcement that Sun World Ba Na Hills from Sun Group was voted as Southeast Asia People’s Choice Award for Project of the Year 2020.
Proceeds from the Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 Charity Gala went to Habitat for Humanity, the event’s official charity partner. A lucky draw led by Habitat for Humanity Brand Ambassador and former Miss Universe Thailand, Khun Aniporn Chalermburanawong (Natt), brought in a significant influx of donations during the event.
For winners, a victory at the Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards 2020 allowed them to end one of the most challenging years with something to be proud of. Among this year’s winners in the developer categories were Cat Tuong Group (Vietnam), KSK Land (Malaysia) and Paramount Land (Indonesia).
