Our story finds its roots in Turin, Italy. Here, Alessandro Gaffuri established For Events SRL, orchestrating live events loyalty programs and even venturing into the radio industry with GRU Radio. This Italian chapter saw collaborations with renowned artists and critical affiliations with ICSC and CNCC.
2013 was a milestone. C.E.L.S marked its Middle Eastern debut in Dubai. Its primary objective? To revolutionize the shopping center industry in the GCC region, enhancing engagement, loyalty dynamics, and customer retention.
The subsequent year, we marked our venture into the tech realm. We acquired a 50% stake in VIAFONE Technologies, amplifying our capacities in customer engagement, loyalty mechanics, and digital insights. Our flagship ‘CELS Platform’ saw its birth during this period.
2019 culminated with a resounding resonance! Our strategic due diligence led to the acquisition of three luminaries in the lights & decor space, culminating in the inception of the industry-leading CELS Lights & Decor. This was also the year Doha pulsated to the beats of international artists like Katy Perry and Maroon 5, thanks to CELS Events.
Undeterred by the uncertainties shadowed by COVID-19, 2020 saw CELS Group making a confident stride by establishing a footprint in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The same year marked the unveiling of our ambitious Katara Cultural Village project: AI Wasmi. This international garden festival mirrored global gardens, capturing the hearts of its visitors. Parallelly, CELS Group fortified its strength, acquiring a significant 50% stake in DPM, emphasizing interior design and architecture, with prominent branches in Milan and Dubai.
2020 posed unprecedented challenges with the advent of the pandemic, especially for a company like ours, anchored in the spirit of fostering connections. Nonetheless, two years into this global turmoil, we undertook meticulous internal audits that transformed our structures, vision, and operational philosophy. A pivotal moment came in March 2021 when Mr. Ahmed Dessouki strategically secured a 10% stake in CELS Group Ltd. Guided by our legacy, the redefined board and stakeholders initiated pivotal decisions to safeguard our sustained growth trajectory.
Accomplishing 87 projects spanning from the Middle East to Europe including the FIFA World Cup in Qatar enable us to achieve our 2022 goal of 30 million Euros. This success is attributed to the dedication of our skilled professionals, driven by our passion for our work.
In the course of this year, CELS group announced its acquisition of 49% stake in ISRE (International Sourcing for Retail and Events). This strategic move enables CELS to intensify its collaborative efforts with ISRE, aiming to penetrate additional markets in line with its expansion strategy.
