The fifth installment of the Property Insight Prestigious Developer Award (PIPDA) 2019
The fifth instalment of the Property Insight Prestigious Developer Award (PIPDA) 2019, was
held on the evening of 3rd May at Shangri-La Hotel. The awards serve as a benchmark for local
property developers to strive for, and as a celebratory occasion to recognise the
accomplishments in the property sector leading up to the event.
The PIPDA award ceremony/gala dinner is supported by the Ministry of Housing & Local
Government (KPKT). Gracing the gala dinner and award ceremony with his presence was YBM
Senator Dato’ Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad, the Deputy Minister of Housing & Local
PIPDA is one of the largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised awards programmes
throughout Malaysia, and it functions as a tribute to the continually evolving property landscape
here in Malaysia.
“This year’s award ceremony will be bigger, better and grander than what we have previously
accomplished,” commented Dato’ KK Chua, managing director and editor-in-chief of Property Insight.
In her opening speech, YBM Senator Dato’ Raja Kamarul Bahrin also shared:
“In a time where there are many uncertainties in the market, there is one thing that I am certain
about - Industry members who are able to adapt to these changes, and answer the market
demands will go a long way in the industry. It is important to build the right product for the right
customers, and the local ministry is making efforts trying to help solve the housing oversupply
issue as well.”
