Proptech Association Australia has announced that entries are now open for the national Proptech Awards 2023.
Presented by Proptech Association Australia and sponsored by Ashurst, the third annual awards will celebrate the extraordinary innovation, solutions and achievement occurring across the dynamic property technology sector.
Proptech Association Australia founder and president Kylie Davis said after a year of constant change, competition was expected to be fierce across the country’s only nationally coordinated awards.
“There are more than 30 awards on offer this year, including a new category for Data, Analytics, Insights & AI plus new awards for Commercial Proptech of the Year; Residential Proptech of the Year; Corporate Proptech of the Year and, VC & Accelerator Program of the Year,” Ms Davis said.
“It’s super exciting to be able to celebrate the success stories in Australian proptech and highlight the incredible innovation across the entire real estate, property, and construction value chain.
“It’s time for industry members to stand up and be recognised!”
Entries will be scored by a panel of more than 40 judges with expertise including property, finance, law, sales and marketing, technology, sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Award winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Sydney on Wednesday, July 19, at the Fullerton Hotel. Event ticketing details will be announced shortly.
Ashurst Corporate Partner and head of the Venture Capital and High Growth Team, Stuart Dullard, said Australia’s maturing proptech ecosystem was attracting plenty of attention from entrepreneurs and investors.
“Ashurst is incredibly proud to be supporting the development of proptech through the sponsorship of these awards, in partnership with Proptech Association Australia, as the digitalisation of the property and construction markets continues,” Mr Dullard said.
Ms Davis said that this year there were 24 industry sector awards which would be judged in three overall categories: Start-Ups, Scale-Ups and Established Suppliers.
- Start-Ups (you’re up to three years old, and kicking goals!)
- Scale-Ups (you’re hitting your straps and been around for a minimum of three years but less than 10 years)
- Established Suppliers (you’ve been in business 10+ years)
“This means you’ll be judged against your peers – in terms of company size, the resources behind you and innovation maturity – by our panel of expert judges from across the real estate, property and construction industry as we look at who has delivered the best tech across the past 12 months,” Ms Davis said.
Whether you’re a start-up, scale-up, or an established supplier, you can enter into eight industry sector categories:
- Efficiency & Optimisation
- Sales & Marketing
- Property & Facilities Management
- Ownership, Affordability & Finance
- Consumer Proptech
- Design, Build & Development
- Environment Social & Sustainability (previously Smart Buildings & Cities)
- Data, Analytics, Insights & AI.
An additional four open awards are designed to recognise key trends and specialisation emerging across the sector. These are:
- Corporate Proptech of the Year
- Proptech Leader of the Year
- VC & Accelerator Program of the Year
- Proptech to Watch.
This year there will also be five Best of the Best Awards judged from winners and finalists across the field.
- Start-Up Proptech of the Year
- Scale-Up Proptech of the Year
- Established Supplier Proptech of the Year
- Commercial Proptech of the Year
- Residential Proptech of the Year.

Proptech Association Australia is working to grow the local proptech industry and accelerate the adoption of technology at all stages of the real estate value chain.
“The association is a community of technology providers who want to drive the conversation about how proptech can help deliver better experiences in how we list, sell, buy, rent, build and manage property,” Ms Davis said.
“We’re a not-for-profit industry association which believes we need a bigger vision for proptech in Australia and that, together, we can grow the market exponentially.”
