Thames Valley Property Awards 2015

Haslams are proud to once again be sponsoring the Thames Valley Property Awards – a joint venture between The Business Magazine and UK Property Forums. The awards will be attended by the top property professionals from across the Thames Valley and will be hosted by well-known writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth.

Last year’s inaugural awards were a huge success, with more than 330 people gathering at Ascot Racecourse in May to celebrate property success from across the region. Winners included Maidenhead, named Town of the Year; the University of Reading’s Real Estate Team and the town’s Station redevelopment; Honda’s move to Slough and the ongoing success of Milton Park in Abingdon. Segro’s Gareth Osborn was recognised for his outstanding contribution to the Thames Valley property sector.

Nominations are invited from a geographical area that stretches from Banbury in the north, to Basingstoke and Guildford in the south and from Newbury in the west across to Hounslow in the east.

Details of how to enter and nomination forms can be found at and the closing date for entries is 20th March 2015.

Tim Smith, Chief Executive of Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership and a judge of this year’s awards said:

“It is an exciting time for our region with major infrastructure and building projects at all stages of development; we shouldn’t underestimate how vital a role this plays both within Thames Valley Berkshire and in the success of the economy of the south-east of England. These awards are intended to recognise this and celebrate the best that the property sector in the wider Thames Valley has to offer.

“We were absolutely delighted with the response in 2014, the first year of the Thames Valley Property Awards, and are looking forward to an even stronger response in 2015.”

Matthew Battle, Managing Director of UK Property Forums said:

“The scope of the Thames Valley Property Awards means that we are confident of attracting a high calibre of entries again this year. As the biggest property region outside of London and home to many global corporations, we have something to shout about and these awards provides platform to promote the best we have to offer.”

David Murray, publisher of The Business Magazine, said: “We are thrilled to be once again organising the Property Awards with Matthew Battle’s team at TVPF. The 2014 event exceeded all our expectations and we are well set for an even bigger and better awards night next year.”

The awards dinner will be held at Ascot Racecourse on 14 May 2015.

Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service is again TVPA’s beneficiary charity. More than £5,000 was raised at this year’s event.
