New industry awards set to highlight the best partners from property and media.
REA Group this week announced a unique awards program that for the first time will honour the most innovative, community-minded and highest-achieving individuals and businesses across the property and media industries.
The inaugural Annual REA Excellence Awards (AREAs), to be held in Spring this year and hosted by a surprise celebrity, will be submission-based and reviewed by an independent judging panel. There will also be a consumer voting component for some awards.
The awards will include categories such as: Innovation, Community, Service and Marketing Excellence. Categories have been designed to encompass the entire property industry (residential, commercial, project developers) as well as those working in media.
Tracey Fellows, REA Group Chief Executive Officer, commented on the launch of the awards:
“Every day we interact with people from the property and media industries who are doing amazing things. This might be how they are contributing to their local communities, delivering exceptional service to their market and clients, or how they are using technology in new and innovative ways.
“We feel it’s our responsibility to recognise and celebrate our outstanding industry partners, and what better way to do that than with a new awards program. The launch of the AREAs is an exciting new step in our mission to honour excellence in both property and media.”
