According to the organizer's preliminary statistics, there have been approximately 325 project portfolios registered to participate, with many standout projects from India, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines, all countries that are experiencing strong infrastructure and architectural development.

Mr. Dylan Yip, Vice President of Global Business of the Asia Awards Organization (AAO) said: "We are not surprised to receive AADA registration profiles from India, Thailand, or Vietnam. Recently, these countries have developed rapidly in terms of infrastructure and have emerged with many iconic works. However, we are impressed by the relatively large number of registration profiles, demonstrating their interest in international awards as a way to seek professional recognition and promote their country's name to the world."
According to Mr. Dylan Yip, the most concentrated registrations are in the categories of Architectural Design, Resort Design, Hotel Design, and Commercial Interior Design. In the Residential Architecture category, India holds the majority with many impressive works blending religious and modern technological elements. Thailand stands out in the Commercial Interior Design category with works such as museums, amusement parks, and automobile showrooms. Meanwhile, Vietnam has many architectural works such as resorts, hotels, and offices. In addition, the AADA also noted a high number of registrations from Singapore for Best Landscape Architecture Design and Best Commercial Architecture Design. Many of these projects demonstrate Singapore's innovative thinking and advanced technology, contributing to improving the quality of life by optimizing health, safety, convenience, and efficiency.
