Publishing brand Robb Report Australia & New Zealand is launching a new luxury awards program.
Robb Report’s inaugural Property, Finance and Investment Awards will highlight and herald the Top 5 individuals, businesses and properties across 10 local luxury sectors – the prestigious collection of winners to be announced as part of Robb Report’s dedicated Property, Finance and Investment (PFI) issue, on sale November 5, and further supported and promoted across the brand’s targeted channels.
PFI Award categories cover luxury property, agents and advisors, architects, interior designers, wealth advisors as well as highlighting necessary moves in sustainability and innovation, among others.
“Against the ongoing backdrop of COVID – and we in no way look to diminish the arduous effects it has had on so many – the PFI Awards are acknowledgement of the stoicism, determination and achievement of many of the industries and individuals we work with closely at Robb Report,” said Richard Clune, editor-in-chief.
“Perseverance is invaluable and central to driving a sense of normality – and right now it’s very much necessary. It’s why I’m proud to push forward with all that we’re doing at Robb Report and as part of that, to officially launch the 2020 PFI Awards and the associated positivity they’re set to deliver.”
An award-winning luxury title, Robb Report this month unveiled its design issue, featuring lauded Australian industrial designer Marc Newson in a rare interview, alongside architects Chris Wilkinson and Achille Salvagni, digital artist Chris Labrooy, menswear’s Nicolas Gabard and acclaimed motoring designer, Ian Callum, among others.
“There is no shame in saying this was a tricky issue to pull together – we’re in publishing, after all,” Clune explained. “But we rallied, firmed our support amongst our friends, embraced digital opportunities and found creative ways to engage new revenue. The result is an exemplary issue and I’m chuffed about what this small, dedicated and passionate team has managed the past few months, just as I’m excited about the various initiates, such as the 2020 PFI Awards, we’re set to unveil before the close of the year.”
