That said, they are active with clients in EU and Asian markets as well and you can hear more about that in this short video.
Manav Fernandez is a Certified Loyalty Marketing Professional (CLMP™) and both he and his partner Chayya Bassi have extensive experience working with brands throughout this region.
Previously, Manav shared that the Middle East is a Millennial Minefield with 48% of the GCC market being in the 25-40 age range. He reminds us that the Middle East customer is loyal but unforgiving; the customer tends to have travelled; and, the customer is well exposed to high standards of service delivery and demands the same from programs around the world.
