Celebrating Retail & Leisure Excellence
Since its inception, the Global RLI Awards have paid tribute to the very best in the world of retail and leisure, having been held in London, Dubai, Los Angeles and more recently Riyadh over the last seventeen years. RLI has continued to adapt and evolve to meet the rapidly changing needs of the industry and we will enter 2023 with renewed hope, energy and resolutions.
The Global RLI Awards returned to the GCC this year as the area continues to boost its drive to become a global capital of future economy. Held on the 2nd November 2022 at the British Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Retail and Leisure International’s seventeenth Global RLI Awards provided a memorable evening that recognized and celebrated the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe.
In her opening speech, RLI Publisher Jayne Rafter said: “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.”
In 2023, the Global RLI Awards will return to its iconic home, London and will continue to strive for excellence in an industry where the boundaries are always being pushed and now, more than ever, it is essential that we continue to collaborate and recognise achievements and ground-breaking projects around the world. The Global RLI Awards 2023 will once again recognise innovation and dynamism in an inspiring industry that continues to adapt and evolve according to fast-changing market environments.
A Night to Remember
After hosting the awards virtually in 2020 and as a Hybrid event in London last year, RLI felt this year was the perfect opportunity to bring the awards somewhere new as the world strives to return to a pre-Covid existence. So where better than the burgeoning country of Saudi Arabia which is the epicentre of giga-projects as Vision 2030 begins to take shape. The Global RLI Awards 2022 took place on the 2 November at the British Embassy, a venue like no other that offered the perfect platform to reward the imagination and ingenuity of the world’s most innovative developers and exciting retailers, leisure and entertainment operators and affiliated business partners. After everything the world has endured over the last few years, the event really was a night to remember.
