About the Awards

For the past 18 years, the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of CoreNet Global has recognized outstanding leadership through its Awards of Excellence in corporate real estate. The Awards serve as an opportunity for the Corporate Real Estate community to recognize those individuals and companies who are advancing the profession. Award Winners will be announced in front of 350+ CRE professionals at the Black-Tie Awards Dinner on May 18th at the Capital One Hall, and winners will be posted on Chapter website for 2022 year as well as in a Chapter e-announcements and e-newsletter.

The Awards of Excellence have established themselves as one of the most sought-after in the Mid-Atlantic Region. In addition to the awards ceremony, winners of these awards enjoy promotion on the Mid-Atlantic website, in the digital newsletter, and at educational and networking events throughout the year. Now is the time to consider nominating a project, individual, company or organization in one of the award categories.
