2009 MIPIM Asia Awards Nominees Unveiled

Singapore and China feature strongly in the list of 24 nominees for the third edition of the MIPIM Asia Awards. Both countries have respectively 7 and 6 projects competing for an award.

The international jury*, chaired by Dr Robert Lie, Managing Director Redevco Asia Limited, met in Hong Kong, September 18, to examine all entries to the competition and to determine the 24 nominees in 8 distinct categories — 3 nominated projects per category.

The 24 finalist projects will be exhibited throughout the market and, for the first time, MIPIM Asia participants will vote on line for their favourite projects in the 2 weeks prior to the event.

104 pre-selection forms from 15 countries have been presented to this year’s MIPIM Asia Awards competition. Entries have been sent from as far afield as Australia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Macao, the Philippines or the UAE. China is the best-represented country in this competition with 41 submitted projects.

“It is very impressive to see that in times of financial and economic turmoil, so many interesting and ambitious projects are conceived and built. We are particularly pleased that China — Country of Honour at this year’s MIPIM Asia — has so strongly responded to the MIPIM Asia Awards competition. The newly introduced category ˜Best Chinese projects’ will certainly present some of the most interesting projects of the whole competition,” states Robert Lie, President of the MIPIM Asia Awards 2009 Jury.

The fourth edition of MIPIM Asia, the world’s property market in Asia Pacific, will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from November 18 to 20. The MIPIM Asia Awards Ceremony will take place on the opening day of MIPIM Asia, on Wednesday, November 18, at 5.30 pm.
