EuropaProperty is pleased to announce the shortlist for the 4th annual CRE Awards recognising the best buildings, companies, real estate deals and industry professionals across the international markets of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Balkans region. The winners from 24 categories will be announced at the Gala Dinner on October 20th in Budapest.

The CRE Awards will be held at the InterContinental Hotel 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 (considered the ultimate networking event) begins with opening cocktails, a 5-star sit-down dinner and an 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, and new and old contacts, and meet new entrants to the market. This makes for an excellent opportunity to promote your company or project in a professional and social atmosphere.
