In an exceptional showcase of extraordinary property development, the SAPOA Property Development Awards for Innovative Excellence, acknowledges and recognize some of the most remarkable projects that contribute towards to South Africa’s built environment.
The South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) is once again excited to invite entries for this year’s installment of the awards.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Sapoa Annual International Convention and Property Exhibition gala diner to be held at Sun City, North West Province, from 3-5 June 2020.
