Baltic Real Estate Awards & CEO Networking Forum

About picture

EuropaProperty is proud to host and present the annual Baltic Real Estate Awards Gala. This eagerly anticipated occasion will take place on May 23, 2024, at the Radisson BLU Sopot in the Tri-City region of Poland and is heralded as the next premier awards event.

The event includes high-impact discussion panels covering the region’s key sectors, followed by the awards gala. EuropaProperty is expecting more than 250 guests already doing business or planning to do business in the area. The event is subject to considerable media coverage, with local and international media attending the awards.

The Baltic Real Estate Awards will celebrate and welcome the investors, developers, city innovators, thought leaders and neighbourhood destination changemakers who aspire to honour ESG principles and make meaningful contributions to the challenging real estate environment with leading-edge achievements in sustainability, innovation and change. The Awards will bring together Baltic business leaders, cutting-edge organizations, and aspiring individuals to salute their triumphs and innovations in sustainable real estate practices and developments.

The Awards will clearly show how ESG principles are shaping the future viability of the real estate industry. From the most attractive cities for investment and expansion to developing a project and making ESG a central quality requirement from the outset. ESG aspects of real estate represent not only environmental but also commercial factors. Those who fail to invest sufficiently in these today will have to reckon with a considerable loss of value or the real estate becoming unsaleable in the future.

The Baltic Real Estate Awards will focus and recognizing the top projects, developers and investors active in the Baltic region. Countries covered include Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Finland.

The awards ceremony is a unique opportunity to meet with colleagues, clients, new and old contacts, and newcomers to the market and an opportunity to promote your company or project in a professional and social atmosphere.
