Shortlist announced for the 2nd annual CRE Awards
27 September

After weeks of discussions and difficult decisions, EuropaProperty is pleased to announce the shortlist for the upcoming annual CRE Awards Gala, recognising the best projects, companies and industry professionals across the international markets of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Balkans region. Now in its second year, the awards ceremony is building on its inaugural success, and promises to be an unforgettable experience for all potential winners and their guests. The winners from the 19 categories will be announced at the Gala on January 17th in Budapest.

Once again the CRE Awards will be held at the prestigious Hotel Marriott on the banks of the Danube in Budapest. This high-impact one day event starts with the CEO Breakfast Forum including high-speed investor networking, presentations on Hungary's economy and government, discussion panels on investment, finance & banking, and development - covering the office, retail, and industrial sectors, wrapping up with a Q&A session, and a light lunch with networking.

The evening awards (the ultimate networking event) begins with opening cocktails, a 5-star sit down dinner and awards presentation, closing with late night networking and entertainment in the now traditional EuropaProperty fashion.

The awards ceremony is a unique opportunity to meet with colleagues, clients, new and old contacts, and meet new entrants to the market. This makes for a great opportunity to promote your company or project in a professional and social atmosphere.

The CRE Awards is the only awards ceremony to recognize and honour excellence in the Balkans region and Hungary. The awards will be presented to companies and individuals who have demonstrated the best overall performance during the past year that have produced consistent results.
