DUBAI, United Arab Emirates. KidZania Journal. June 3, 2015. (English). –This evening, KidZania Jeddah was bestowed with the “2015 Most Innovative Concept” award in the Retail & Leisure category at the Global RLI Awards held in Dubai. RLI, the World’s only Global Retail & Leisure magazine hosted tonight the Tenth ‘Global RLI Awards’, which once again had all the glitz and glamour that the industry expected from the most highly anticipated event on the global retail and leisure calendar, an evening of recognition and celebration for the most innovative and imaginative retail and leisure concepts across the globe. KidZania as a global company obtained the “Highly Commended” award in the Global Leisure Operator category.
This year in particular was very exciting, since RLI celebrated its Tenth Anniversary, bringing the world of retail to the Meydan Hotel in Dubai through its two highly coveted and world-renowned events, the RLI Connect Deal-Making Forum and the esteemed Global RLI Awards.
Key global industry leaders gathered tonight in Dubai, which has established itself firmly as one of the most vibrant, innovative and attractive retail locations in the world, attracting business from all corners and generating interest like no other market.
Representing KidZania, Andrew Darrow said: “World industry leaders in retail, leisure, development and design all joined in a single illustrious affair to recognize the best in the business in the setting of a first class event. KidZania truly set the entertainment industry apart when it first launched in Mexico City back in 1999. It has done it again with KidZania Jeddah, which is the first over-100 employee company in Saudi Arabia that is 100% staffed by women. Bit by bit, KidZania is really preparing global children to get ready for a better world”.
