Global Awards Program

Earn recognition from your company and peers through awards programs focused on innovation and excellence. Get recognized for your contributions to the corporate real estate profession, your corporation and the association. A number of awards programs are offered throughout the year.

Click here to see the criteria and to start your submission process.  


We’re looking for disruptive, innovative projects—those that up-end business as usual and enable corporate real estate (CRE) professionals to meet ever-changing business dynamics and economic conditions head-on. 

How has your CRE organization’s response to the COVID-19 challenge delivered new and innovative processes, approaches, tools or technologies?

If your project connects with "what's next" in corporate real estate (e.g., business strategy, geopolitics, risk management, the environment, sustainability, or corporate social responsibility), we especially want to hear from you. 

Ready to submit your proposal?

Global Innovator’s Award - GIA

Celebrating the Forward-Thinkers, Innovators & Game Changers in Corporate Real Estate

The H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator's Award (GIA) recognizes excellence and innovation in corporate real estate (CRE). Since 2000, the award has honored the "game changers" in CRE—those individuals and companies whose work, ideas, and best practices elevate the practice of corporate real estate.

Nominees for the GlA are chosen from project submissions in two categories - Sustainable Leadership and Professional Excellence. The winner of the Global Innovator's Award is recognized live on-stage at CoreNet Global's Annual North America Summit, during the annual awards and recognition. Their achievement is also showcased in the LEADER magazine and the Knowledge Center Online, and distributed via CoreNet Global press releases.

For more information, contact Tim Venable at tvenable@corenetglobal.org.

Global Innovator's Award (GIA)

CBRE Logo

CBRE: Office Ready, CBRE’s Quick Design-Deliver Solution for Office Space

CBRE received the award for its program, “Office Ready: A Quick Design-Deliver Solution for Office Space.” CBRE developed the initiative to give smaller office users the same experience as companies building larger, custom offices. Although initially envisioned for small- to mid-size occupier clients, Office Ready has also resonated with larger, enterprise portfolio clients that want to quickly establish small offices around the world, especially in suburban locations as post-COVID hybrid workplace strategies gain traction.
