The EG Tech Awards are back for their fifth year in 2022 and, for the first time, you can choose how you get in on the action as we will be opening both our virtual and in-real-life doors to you on 6 July.

Our judges spent two days debating and deliberating as they whittled down more than 200 entries across 12 categories. Our shortlisted companies and individuals didn’t just impress the judges with financial prowess and fundraising success stories, they proved they are doing something significant within the built environment to tackle the vital issues it is currently facing.

Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted for the Tech Awards 2022. A formidable list and one that reflects the focus and commitment of a sector navigating great change.

Innovation Award (building)

In partnership with HqO

An award open to any building around the world that can demonstrate measurable innovative qualities and/or returns.

Innovation Award (business)

Has your company or team demonstrated a particularly innovative approach to business over the past year? If so, then this could be the award for you. We are looking for a team or company that has worked together to deliver innovative solutions whether that is as part of their own company structure or for another tech or real estate company. As there is a separate innovation award for product, the winner of this category will have to go beyond showing evidence of innovative output in isolation and will need to demonstrate how they worked together using innovative thought-processes and strategies within the business. This award is for a company which has delivered a truly innovative different business model and/or way of thinking.

Investment Award

In partnership with Hollis

This award recognises the best use of technology to support property investment, either to raise funds, reduce risk, identify an opportunity or speed up transactions.

Entries must include demonstrable, tangible benefits and/or examples of measurable success.

Productivity Award

An award for the best use of technology to improve productivity in buildings or cities. Judges will be looking for evidence of how technology has been used to increase productivity of ether the physical asset/city or the people within it. Or indeed both. Entries must include demonstrable, tangible benefits of improved productivity. As an example, if the entry in question relates to an office then fewer sick days, increased use of space/reduction of person/sq ft) or increased productivity of a building through use of robots would all be strong measures of success. These criteria and examples will obviously differ depending on the focus of each individual entry.
