The advisory board of unarguably Nigeria’s foremost awards body for the real estate sector, UNITE awards, has taken an unprecedented step by releasing the selection criteria for the various categories of awards. The move, which is obtainable internationally, is a departure from what is obtainable in this part of the world, where awards are covered in a shroud of mystery and is expected to further solidify the confidence that this platform has enjoyed from the entire real estate sector.
More importantly, this gesture is intended to spark up conversation on best practices as nominees and winners will be implored to facilitate sessions that will help players in their sectors, replicate their winning template.
The nominations process has now commenced on the fourth annual installment of the REAL ESTATE UNITE AWARDS ceremonies. At the forthcoming Summit which is slated to hold on September 29th – 30th,2015, at the prestigious Eko Convention Centre in Lagos, 12 leaders in the real estate sector will be presented with awards in various categories- identified for their contributions to the real estate industry.
