Through its power brands GROHE and American Standard, LIXIL Asia signs a three-year deal to become the Headline Sponsor of the Asia Pacific Property Awards from 2019 until 2022.
23rd January 2019: The International Property Awards, first established in 1993, are open to residential and commercial property professionals from around the globe. They celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating within the architecture, interior design, real estate and property developer sectors. The awards are judged by an independent panel of over 80 industry experts, chaired by four UK Lords. The Awards are the largest and most widespread programme of recognition in the world.
Covering over 40 different residential and commercial categories, regional heats are staged for Arabia, Europe, Africa, Canada, Central & South America, the Caribbean, USA, UK and Asia Pacific.
The Asia Pacific Property Awards is the largest branch of the programme, with over 800 entries each year from countries based across the entire region. GROHE and American Standard’s range of high quality, innovative and desirable bathroom and kitchen fittings are the ideal match for the world’s leading property developers, architects and interior designers.
Winners in the Asia Pacific Awards will be celebrated at an exhibition and gala presentation event on 14th – 15th May 2019 at the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, Bangkok, Thailand. GROHE and American Standard will be exhibiting their products at this event.
