The annual awards recognise exceptional shopping centre marketing, innovation, customer service and economic achievements.

This year, 46 awards were presented in total, of which 11 were Gold awards and 21 were Silver. All Gold Footprint Marketing Awards are automatically entered into the International Council of Shopping Centres’ Viva Awards.

Boulders Shopping Centre scoops Spectrum Award

The Boulders Shopping Centre in Midrand, Gauteng was crowned the Spectrum Award winner for its 3 Hour Uncapped Free Wi-Fi Launch, a campaign which saw dwell time increase by 35 minutes. Redefine Properties was responsible for the creation and implementation of the campaign.

A long list of new customers was added to the mall’s database and this also allowed management to monitor shopper patterns over the month-long campaign. Shoppers had access to dedicated Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the centre, with dedicated sign boards highlighting these areas.
