It's time the innovators in real estate and property had their own awards and a chance to celebrate!
The Inaugural Proptech Awards offers 21 awards in all across three main categories – Start-Ups, Scale-Ups and Established Suppliers. This means you’ll be judged against your peers in terms of company size and maturity by our panel of expert judges from across the real estate and property industry. Inside each category are six awards designed to cover off innovation across the gamut of proptech functionality.
If you have a pitch deck, or product presentation, you’ll find it straightforward to answer the key questions that will put you in the running to win.
A gala dinner to announce the winners will be held in Sydney on Thursday May 27, and broadcast online. Entry to the awards closes on March 19.
Our thanks to Ashurst lawyers and our sponsors who have made the event possible.
