THE GLOBAL RLI AWARDS 2021

Creating New Worlds...
One Event, Two Experiences


Held as a hybrid event on 23rd September 2021 at The Londoner Hotel in London, UK, Retail and Leisure International’s sixteenth Global RLI Awards provided a unique evening that recognised and celebrated the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe.

As the world continues to adapt to the ongoing effects of the Covid‐19 pandemic, RLI decided there was no better way to showcase the best of the best in the industry to key global sector leaders than to offer a hybrid event, allowing people from across the world to watch either live in‐person or for those unable to travel, from the comfort of their computer, laptop or mobile screen.

The ceremony began with a reception where people could catch‐up with friends and colleagues in the industry before taking their seats to watch an RLI video highlighting extracts from previous awards over the last five years in Dubai, London and Los Angeles as well as last year’s virtual event. As anticipation started to build, Presenter Lucy Alexander and RLI Publisher Jayne Rafter took to the stage to kick‐off the evening.

In her opening speech, RLI Publisher Jayne Rafter said: “Retail will reinvent itself once again and in time we will look back on Covid‐19 as a catalyst for some of the biggest changes the world will see, the birth of big ideas and innovations. And tonight we will honour the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe. The retail and leisure industry is exciting, dynamic and innovative and the Awards pay tribute to those companies that continue to push the boundaries; who are not afraid of the challenges that they are presented with; and who refuse to settle for anything but the very best.”

Following an exquisite three‐course meal and coffee with petit fours, and the fantastic ‘We Will Rock You’ as the evening’s entertainment, it was time for the main event, the Global RLI Awards 2021.
