PropNex Management team together with 3,268 of its salespersons, staff and guests broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Most People Participating in a Lo Hei Salad Toss Simultaneously (in a single venue) at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore on 15 February 2024.

15 February 2024, Singapore –Over 800 hours of kitchen prep by 80 chefs, 439 tables laden with 888 platters of Yu Sheng, and a group of 3,268 excited PropNexians culminated in breaking the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Most People Participating in a Lo Hei Toss Simultaneously.

On 15 February 2024, PropNex, Singapore’s largest listed real estate agency, made history by ushering in the Year of the Dragon with a record-breaking Lo Hei toss. The event took place across exhibition halls A, B and C at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre, where 3,268 PropNex management, staff, salespersons and guests participated, and beat the 2016 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with 430 participants.

PropNex’s spectacular set up featured platters of Yu Sheng presented in the form of two majestic dragons, with their massive bodies winding across all three halls. A troupe of ten lions and two dragons gave a spectacular performance revving up the energy at this event. As the PropNex salespersons proceeded to toss the Yu Sheng in the symbolic Lo Hei, their voices were raised loudly in unison, roaring “Huat ah! Huat ah! (meaning “To prosperity!”)”. 

Breaking away from tradition, PropNex made a bold decision to unite its salespersons from various divisions for the first time, fostering a sense of collective celebration. This event also served as a symbolic farewell to 2023, a year marked by property market turbulence, economic uncertainties, and rising interest rates. Despite the hurdles, PropNex exhibited unparalleled tenacity, dominating the market for new launches and resale properties in private, landed, and HDB segments.

Mr Ismail Gafoor, Executive Chairman and CEO said, “PropNex has always been known as a trailblazer and market leader in Singapore’s real estate industry. With our newly bolstered leadership team, we wanted to do something special in 2024 to show our unity as a team and our ‘I can’ mindset, where nothing is impossible if we set our minds to it. What better way to demonstrate PropNex’s market leadership, solidarity and fortitude than setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title? This is an apt way to welcome the Year of the Dragon and we look forward to a 2024 filled with success and prosperity within the dynamic real estate landscape.”

PropNex introduced its fortified leadership structure in August 2023. Comprising Deputy CEO Kelvin Fong, Chief Agency Officer Eddie Lim, and the five Agency Vice Presidents – Bobby Sng, Cijay Tew, Marcus Luah, Benjamin Tan, and Ken Ng.
