Bay of Plenty Property People Awards

Congratulations to our winners!

Property Council's Bay of Plenty Branch was pleased to present the 2019 Bay of Plenty Property People Awards.

The Awards celebrate the people in property; recognising excellence in leadership and innovation in the Bay of Plenty property industry and celebrating outstanding contributions to our industry and the local economy.

The Awards are open to both members and non-members of Property Council New Zealand who are based in the Bay of Plenty region (Tauranga, Whakatane, Rotorua, Taupo).

The Judging Panel consists of an extremely high calibre group of Bay of Plenty property professionals from a range of disciplines within the property industry – providing reputability and ensuring equality in the judging process.

All Award winners were formally announced and celebrated at the Awards dinner on Thursday 19 September 2019 at Mills Reef Winery in Tauranga.

Please note that due to the disruption of COVID-19, the Awards will be on hiatus in 2020, with plans to return in 2021.
