SM clinched two silvers at the 2019 ICSC Global Awards for Asia Pacific

SM Supermalls recently won various honors from prestigious international award-giving bodies. SM was recognized at the International Council of shopping Centers (ICSC) Global Awards 2019 for Asia Pacific, International Public Relations Association’s (IPRA) Golden World Awards, and the International Business Awards, also known as the Stevie Awards. 

“SM continuously strives to offer family fun experiences to our customers in our malls all over the Philippines and in China. We are incredibly grateful and honored to be recognized on a global scale for the work we do every day to make malling more fun in the Philippines at SM,” said SM Supermalls chief operating officer Steven Tan.

SM Supermalls scored two Silver Awards at the ICSC Global Awards 2019 for Asia Pacific for the “#AweSM: SM Celebrates 60” campaign and SM China’s “Children’s Happy Home,” under the Public Relations and Events and Cause Related Marketing categories, respectively. The awards were conferred at the awarding ceremony in Singapore.

Starting as a humble shoe store in Manila established by its founder Henry Sy Sr. in 1958, SM has grown into the Philippines’ biggest chain of malls. From May to October 2018, SM marked its 60th anniversary with the ‘#AweSM: SM Celebrates 60’ campaign, a multi-faceted celebration that featured 60-themed experiences, fun activities, digital videos and activations, sale events, and employee engagement programs.

To address the pressing issue of “left-behind children” in China, SM built the ‘Children’s Happy Home’ which is a long-term plan that aims to create a safe space for kids where they can live and spend fun childhood memories even if their parents are away.  

Moreover, SM also launched creative public actions that appeal for more public awareness and influence migrant workers.
