THE GLOBAL RLI AWARDS 2024

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 Riyadh over the last eighteen years.

RLI has continued to adapt and evolve to meet the rapidly changing needs of the industry and this will continue in 2024 with the same hope, energy and resolution.

Last year, the Global RLI Awards returned to its iconic home in London as the city maintains its position as one of the world’s beacons of retail and leisure. Held in June 2023 at the Pan Pacific in London, UK, Retail and Leisure International’s eighteenth Global RLI Awards provided a memorable evening that recognised 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 2024, we were hoping to take the Global RLI Awards to the brand new and exciting location of Miami, known as ‘The Magic City’ in the state of Florida, unfortunately this hasn’t worked out so we are bringing it back to its spiritual home, London on the 23 October. Despite its relocation it will continue to play host to an event that maintains its drive for excellence in an industry where 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 2024 will once again recognise innovation and dynamism in an inspiring industry that continues to adapt and evolve according to fast-changing market environments.

THE GLOBAL RLI AWARDS 2023

A Night to Remember

After being held for the first time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 2022, it felt only right to return the Global RLI Awards to its iconic home in London for the 2023 edition. Held on the 15 June at Pan Pacific London, this groundbreaking hotel made for a wonderful setting as the event continued to wow and delight as we paid tribute to the cream of the crop in retail and leisure, providing a memorable evening that recognised and celebrated the most visionary and innovative retail and leisure concepts from around the world.

Jayne Rafter, Owner & Publisher of RLI commented: “The Global RLI Awards was established seventeen years ago to reward the imagination and ingenuity of the world’s most innovative developers, retailers, leisure and entertainment operators and affiliated business partners and it is important that we continue to strive for excellence in an industry where the boundaries are always being pushed.”
