Global RLI Awards 2018 – An evening like no other

Held at the Natural History Museum in London, UK on 10 May 2018, Retail and Leisure International’s Thirteenth Global RLI Awards, in association with Chalhoub Group, once again provided a spectacular evening in recognition and celebration of the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe.

Where better to showcase the highest possible standards to key global industry leaders than the most international retail city in the world?

The night started with a fantastic champagne reception and complimentary bar, after which guests were invited to be seated for the main event of the evening, which included entertainment in the form of the West End musical ‘Chicago’, sponsored by Cityland Mall, an exquisite three‐course meal and, of course, the awards ceremony itself. To close the evening perfectly there was a complimentary bar on offer at the museum until 12:30am, offering an ideal opportunity to all of this year’s winners to celebrate.

In her opening speech, RLI Publisher Jayne Rafter said: “Tonight, we pay tribute to the very best of the best, the innovators and those that dare to push the boundaries; we reward those dynamic projects and concepts that excite the senses with stunning architecture, exemplary customer service, products that ‘wow’ and that aren’t afraid to take risks, refusing to settle for anything but the very best.”
