PR9.NET May 29, 2008 - Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Sharaf DG announced that it has won two prestigious awards at the Middle East Retail Academy Awards Ceremony held at Le Meridien Al Aqah in Fujairah. The leading power electronics retailer won the award for the 'Best Retailer for Marketing/ Promotion' and 'Store Concept of the Year' at the award function held to recognize important contributions made by both vendors and retailers across MENA. The retail category winners were decided by live electronic voting at the awards by more than 50 carefully profiled senior executives from the regional vendor community who attended the event.
Speaking on the awards, Mr. Nilesh Khalkho, CEO, Sharaf DG, said, "It is with great pride and honour that we accept the awards especially since the voting was done by people who matter the most – our peers in the industry, who have vast knowledge, experience and insight.

DISTREE, which organized the event and hosted the Middle East Retail Academy Awards, laid down a stringent award nomination and declaration process. Five nominees for each of the five retailer categories were selected by an executive committee representing a cross-section of over 20 vendors and leading regional distributors to ensure that the awards truly acknowledged the best in each field based on very clear criteria. The nominees were then put up for live electronic voting by all the vendors present at the award function that injected excitement and suspense into the awards.
