ABOUT THE AWARDS

The Property Council of Australia's Retail Property of the Year Awards recognise and publicly reward exceptional retail properties and precincts in Queensland, based on the response to Development, Marketing and Centre Management criteria.

 

Retail properties and precincts from across the state compete across these categories and for the chance to receive one of the industry’s highest honours – Queensland’s Retail Property of the Year.

 

The awards balance the built aspects of a property or precinct - which provide amenity and convenience for customers and retailers - along with the effort and initiatives of the property managers, marketing managers and operations managers.

Properties or precincts that nominate in more than one category vie for the title of Queensland Retail Property of the Year.

The Emerging Retail Property Professional of the Year award recognises industry professionals who are making a positive contribution to the retail property sector.

This year, the Property Council is introducing a special one-off award, Outstanding Response to Extraordinary Circumstances (Food Retailing), to recognise and celebrate food retailers' innovative adaption initiatives and practices executed as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
