Building the Future of New Europe
The rebuilding of Central & Eastern Europe and Southeast Europe following the economic and physical devastation of large parts of the region through two world wars and communism is one of the most important projects in European economic history.
CEEQA, in association with the Financial Times, seeks to encourage thought leadership and recognise business excellence across 18 countries in New Europe, as well as to showcase the achievements of the New Europe commercial real estate market place to the international investment arena, through its acclaimed market insight platform and the sector’s main annual industry awards.
Leading from the front
CEEQA has also consistently led market knowledge and opinion over the past decade on key issues and trends affecting the market place through its programme of Insight Summits. Researching and consulting on future-led topics and trends including macro-economic and finance issues, capital flows and green building, CEEQA Insight Summits have developed a strong following among senior level industry professionals.
The CEEQA Awards are widely recognised as the most trusted annual industry recgonition for business achievement in commercial real estate investment and development, recognising the best buildings, companies and industry professionals of the sector year. The awards are free to enter and are judged by a Jury panel of the most senior representatives of market leading companies active in the sector.
All aspects of the awards process and judging are supervised and audited by globally trusted consulting firm Deloitte.
Serious business, serious fun
In its 14th year, the annual CEEQA Gala is the New Europe property sector’s flagship annual event, a must-attend for any serious property professional active in the CEE or SEE property markets. Noted for its unique blend of elite business and world class hospitality and entertainment, the event is held at SOHO Factory in Warsaw each April. It attracts over 750 leaders in European real estate from more than 50 countries and is widely regarded as one of the most valued real estate business events in Europe. Recent entertainers have included Bonnie Tyler, Hot Chocolate, Kim Wilde, Bananarama, Edyta Gorniak, Sister Sledge, Katrina & The Waves, Ada Szulc and Boney M. among other great entertainers.
Regional & global platform
Active engagement with other leading industry institutions and platforms including RICS, GRI, Europe Real Estate and WBJ Observer underpin CEEQA’s value to both the New Europe market place and international investment arena.
The shortlist for the CEEQA Awards and winners of the RealGreen Awards for innovation and leadership in green building are announced at the annual CEEQA@Mipim New Europe Cocktail, the focal point for the New Europe property sector at the Mipim global real estate fair in Cannes.
