The Afterglow of the Event
The sweat and tears of the event organisers were well worth the effort. The team players included the Events and the Agent Marketing teams from iProperty.com Malaysia. The long hours and late nights spent months and weeks on end preparing for the big day were hectic and overwhelming. But they pulled it off and it was the best night of all for the company’s employees and every real estate agent and agency who attended it.
On Tuesday night, 15 August 2017, Malaysia’s No.1 and popular online property portal was proud to honour the individual agents and agencies at the Agents Advertising Awards 2017. The atmosphere was electric and the air was thick with anticipation. The event may be over but everyone was still abuzz with excitement from the night’s fun and festivities.
Yours truly attended the event as well as part of her job. I enjoyed the celebrations and the quirky antics of the host and professional emcee, William Lee. For someone who spoke both Mandarin and English, he handled wit and sarcasm pretty well when injected into his emceeing.
The Event Kick-Off
More than 550 real estate professionals turned up for the ceremony that was held at the Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur, dedicated to honouring the nation’s top-notch professionals who have shown the highest levels of excellence, leadership and innovation.
The event began with an overview of the four-hour affair and the opportunity for the attendees to win a Ricoh Theta SC 360 camera worth RM1,369. All they had to do was take a photo with the iProperty.com Malaysia Agents Advertising Awards 2017 logo in the background, add a creative caption and upload it to Twitter and Instagram along with the hashtag #iPropertyAgentsAwards.
There were 14 award categories this year for the winners in 3 different areas – real estate agencies, and individual professionals representing residential and/or commercial properties. These categories included awards for agents and agencies, special recognition awards as well as 3 new awards for both agents and agencies.
It was truly a remarkable event with an amazing number of guests who turned up for the celebration! Everyone was exhausted by midnight and nobody looked forward to going in to work the next day. Well, eventually we did and right now, it may not be on top of our minds but we’re looking forward to our 4th (hopefully and possibly even better) Agents Advertising Awards 2018 next year!
