Select CITYALK, arguably India’s most felicitated shopping centre, once again proved its might at the 8th annual IMAGES Shopping Centre Awards ceremony held on May 6th at The Renaissance, Mumbai. The New Delhi mall walked away with two of the coveted trophies – for ‘IMAGES Most Admired Shopping Centre of the Year: Metros-North’ and ‘IMAGES Most Admired Shopping Centre of the Year: Best ROI (NORTH)’, while its Executive Director Mr. Yogeshwar Sharma was awarded the tile of ‘IMAGES Most Admired Shopping Centre Professional of the Year’ at the ceremony attended by India’s leading shopping centre developers and international retail real estate experts.

The glittering awards night witnessed 29 trophies being presented to shopping centres from all corners of the country, across metros and non-metros. From Durgapur to Thane, and from Chennai to Ludhiana, India’s most exciting – both old and new – shopping centres were honoured through 16 categories, including five Retailers’ Choice Awards, 10 Jury Awards and one IMAGES Excellence Award. India’s leading national retail chains, along with major IPCs, participated in a wide-ranging exercise to determine the country’s top performing shopping centres.

The IMAGES Shopping Centre Awards ceremony featured an enthralling performance by actor and singer Suchitra Pillai, who also hosted the awards’ night, and RaagaTrippin, the singing group who use no musical instruments but create unique sounds from human voices.

The awards was a venerable gathering of virtually the who’s who of the industry, including Mr. Jeremy Salmon, Chairman, Asia Pacific Board, Broadway Malyan (Global architecture, urbanism and design practice – established in 1958), Mr. Rajneesh Mahajan (Executive Director, Inorbit Malls), Mr. Kelvin Ng (Former Head of Retail and Commercial, CapitaLand; Senior Vice President, Ascott Holdings (Asia ‘s largest mall developer, globally largest service apartment company) and Senior External Advisor – McKinsey and Co (Asia Pacific and Middle East), Mr. Yogeshwar Sharma (Executive Director, Select CITYWALK), Mr. S Raghunandhan, Chairman, ISCF 2015, CEO, Virtuous Retail… and many more.
