Hari V. Krishnan, CEO of PropertyGuru Group, said: "We are delighted to partner with Anjuke and 58.com. China is a large property market, and Chinese developers have built many exciting projects in Southeast Asia as well. Being Asia's most reputed and trusted property awards, it is only befitting that we expand this platform to China. As Southeast Asia's largest online property company, it was a natural choice for us to partner with China's leading online marketplace 58.com and their leading property business, Anjuke.â€

Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, said: "We are pleased to welcome Anjuke as our associate partner in 2018 as we maintain the benchmark for quality real estate in China. This represents the next stage of the Asia Property Awards programme, as it continues to give residents of Asian countries more choice of quality homes than they have ever had before, including Mainland China, which has seen lot of innovation in building technology and construction in the past decade, and truly deserves to be recognised as the best of the best in the Asia-Pacific region.â€
Property developers from Greater China, including the Mainland, Hong Kong, and Macau, were first recognised at the Asia Property Awards in 2014, which assembled some of the industry's leading names and firms.
Following the expanded new configuration of the Asia Property Awards programme in 2017 with strengthened partnerships and categories in Mongolia and Sri Lanka joining the renowned awards series for the first-time, categories for Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau were incorporated into the Grand Final ceremony, providing a much larger regional reach for the winning and highly commended companies in China.
Now celebrating its thirteenth year in 2018, PropertyGuru's premier awards series has further expanded its coverage in the region, holding its inaugural gala dinner in Colombo to honour Sri Lanka and Maldives developers, in addition to the domestic gala events held in Cambodia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore.
The 2018 awards series is open to 17 established and emerging markets around the Asia-Pacific, including South Korea, Japan and Australia, which will have their respective domestic categories at the Grand Final event that takes place for the first time in Thailand, the birthplace of PropertyGuru's prestigious awards programme.
Eligible entries from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau markets will be accepted until 17 August and can be submitted online via AwardEntrySystem.com.
The 2018 PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards Grand Final is also supported by platinum sponsor Kohler; co-sponsors Hitachi Elevators, AA Corp, and Recruit; official portal partner PropertyGuru, Asia's leading online property group; media partner PropertyGuru Property Report, Asia's leading luxury real estate, architecture and design publication; and official supervisor BDO, the world's fifth-largest auditing and accounting firm.
