Activities all-year round

The Red Sea Mall has an intense calendar of activities for 12 months of the year. These activities have been developed based on an in-depth understanding of the demands of mall visitors. From celebrations of national occasions to exhibitions, shows and pop-ups every visit to the mall is an opportunity for guests to see and experience something new.

In fact, according to a third-party survey conducted at the end of 2021 Red Sea Mall stood out as Jeddah’s leading retail and entertainment destination.

“At the Red Sea Mall we invite potential tenants and welcome visitors based on the tagline ‘SEAing is Believing’,” said Mohammad Iqbal Alawi, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Red Sea Markets Company. “We have a vision of inviting, inspiring and rewarding. And we achieve this vision through our brand values built around making the mall Comfortable, Welcoming, Exciting and Unique. That is what every employee of the Red Sea Mall stands by and represents. We are all passionate about what we do, we are a familiar friend, a trustworthy partner and an experienced guide. We promise to always be fun, authentic and always close to hand. We are proud of what we stand for, and we are respectful to others.”

A Mall of the Future

Alawi is currently steering the Red Sea Mall towards achieving its ambition of becoming ‘A Mall of the Future’ for Jeddah by overseeing the revamp of the mall’s customer journey. The Red Sea Mall team is setting new standards in what people expect from their mall experience.

“The entire team at the Red Sea Mall is working round the clock to understand the everchanging needs of our tenants and visitors. We have completed numerous upgrades enhancing experiences and will continue to further develop the mall experience. While the lockdown in 2020 and 2021 led to significant adjustment of consumer habits it also helped us to identify numerous opportunities that will allow us to stay ahead of the game and offer dynamic and engaging experiences for our visitors, also creating new revenue generating opportunities for our tenants,” Alawi concluded.
