Strategic partnership between CASIO and SOUQ.com results in opening of new online store in UAE and KSA
CASIO opened its interactive, easy-to-navigate online store on the Amazon-acquired SOUQ.com, the leading online portal, after both parties formally sealed their landmark partnership in a high-profile ceremony held recently at Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel, Dubai
The agreement paved the way for customers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to conveniently purchase online various top-of-the-line models of shock-resistant G-SHOCK watches as well as other stellar CASIO timepieces and have the ordered premium items delivered right at their doorsteps. CASIO’s partnership with SOUQ.com signals the former’s bid to systematically expand its digital footprint in the UAE, KSA and the rest of the world.
Aiming to reach as many long-time patrons and new customers as possible, CASIO, known for its innovations and emphasis on research and development (R&D), also expects to witness new and higher traffic for its G-SHOCK brand store as a result of its strategic collaboration with SOUQ.com.
