RLI holds ‘blockbusting’ global real estate and leisure awards

Held at Universal Studios Hollywood, US on 3rd April 2019, Retail and Leisure International’s Fourteenth Global RLI Awards, in association with Chalhoub Group, once again provided a spectacular evening, recognising and celebrating the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from across the globe.

RLI-Awards-2018-MK-Illuminations-low-res-034Where better to showcase the highest possible standards to key global industry leaders than the home of Retailtainment in Los Angeles?

The night started with a fantastic Champagne Reception and Studio Tour, in association with JLL, after which guests were invited to be seated for the main event of the evening, which included entertainment in the form of classic hits from Broadway Musicals, courtesy of Entertainment Sponsor American Dream, an exquisite three‐course meal and, of course, the awards ceremony itself. Following the awards ceremony, guests were invited to make their way to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for Desserts and Entertainment, closing the evening perfectly with complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks on offer until 1am, 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.”
