PIPDA 2019: A Night Of Experiences

The 3rd of May marks the fifth instalment of the Property Insight Prestigious Developer Award (PIPDA) 2019, hosted by the Property Insight magazine.


Held at the prominent Shangri-La Hotel, PIPDA is one of the largest, most prestigious, and widely recognised awards programmes throughout Malaysia, and it functions as a tribute to the continually evolving property landscape here in Malaysia.

The awards serve as a benchmark for local property developers to strive for, and as a celebratory occasion to recognise the accomplishments in the property sector leading up to the event.


The PIPDA award ceremony/gala dinner is supported by the Ministry of Housing & Local Government (KPKT) with the presence of YBM Senator Dato’ Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad, the Deputy Minister of Housing & Local Government. The event was further highlighted with the attendance of Minister of Federal Territories, Khalid Abdul Samad.

“This year’s award ceremony will be bigger, better and grander than what we have previously accomplished,” commented Dato’ KK Chua, managing director and editor-in-chief of Property Insight.


In his opening speech, YBM Senator Dato’ Raja Kamarul Bahrin also shared:


“In a time where there are many uncertainties in the market, there is one thing that I am certain about – Industry members who are able to adapt to these changes, and answer the market demands will go a long way in the industry.  It is important to build the right product for the right customers, and the local ministry is making efforts trying to help solve the housing oversupply issue as well.”
