We realise that following the Pandemic there will be a significant number of international delegates that still have restrictions on overseas travel, which could be in place for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021, so after much deliberation we have finally made the decision to change the format of this year’s events to Virtual Online events, broadcast globally. Our Partners, Delegates and guests’ welfare remain our top priority, and although we may not be able to physically meet in person we intend to continue connecting the industry internationally creating virtual, physical experiences like no other.

The Global RLI Awards 2020 will be the world’s first Virtual Global Awards celebrating retail & leisure excellence across the globe. The fifteenth edition will be a digital show streamed live and available for everyone across the globe to watch free of charge on Thursday 3 September. Bringing people together has never been more important and this year’s awards will give a unique opportunity for everyone to be entertained and share the experience of our world-renowned and highly coveted event.
