The Red Sea Mall of Jeddah, owned by Red Sea Markets Company Ltd., has announced its sponsorship of the Retail ME Awards 2019. For the first time, Retail ME Awards will be taking place in Jeddah at the Ritz-Carlton in April. The awards will recognize top-performing retailers and best practices in the industry and reward excellence across a range of retail categories.
Al-Rayan Gadouri, general manager of Red Sea Mall, said: “We know very well that Retail ME Awards is one of the renowned events in the Middle East and we are proud to sponsor the event, in a step to contribute to the retail industry and entertainment.”
He added: “Red Sea Mall will provision the industry by all means, and we will continue to develop and support through our different approaches, in order to achieve our objective as well as the Saudi Vision 2030 and the Saudi prospects toward the general economy and not just the retail sector.”
Retailers can nominate one or more of their unique stores/concepts, their brand campaigns that could be a multi-channel campaign using above or below-the-line media or a campaign using social media and CRM channels, as well as their store design concepts across all retail formats and the e-commerce space, including brick and mortar retailers now selling online. Furthermore, retailers can also nominate their store managers for outstanding performance, in addition to entries that demonstrate how design is delivering a delightful customer experience, enhancing the retail brand’s visibility and drawing significant media and consumer attention.
“The retail industry is our main goal and Red Sea Mall has been achieving its objectives for the past years and will continue to support, develop and contribute to the industry to ensure a great retail experience, transforming the sector from traditional into a new concept of an overwhelming customer experience,” Gadouri said.
Red Sea Mall is one of the largest malls in Jeddah, home to 521 retail outlets, in addition to a seven-floor office building for the parent company SEDCO Holding Group.
The mall has a mix of international and local brands, with a range of options for restaurants and cafes.
