Deal of the Decade

Celebrate 10 years of Real Estate Excellence with PropertyEU

Thank you to all our readers for the enormous response to The Deal of the Decade Awards. The interest has been such that we will mark the awards with a special dinner celebrating the last decade in European real estate and your successes over the past 10 years.

The Deal of the Decade Awards will be held in London on the evening of 26th April at Banqueting House in London. The awards will recognise the landmark deals that have shaped the European real estate industry over the 10 years since PropertyEU was launched.

Designed by Inigo Jones in 1622 and featuring Peter Paul Rubens’ magnificent ceiling paintings, Banqueting House in Whitehall Palace is one of the most spectacular dining rooms in London.
